I have had this several times. The batteries are not the best they put in and I have actually been thinking about getting a Gel battery. They replaced the battery in my 11 Laramie several times at the dealer. Now with a Longhorn and all the extra bells and gadgets I worry about the battery keeping a charge. Now with the added task of an air compressor running and the same size alternator and battery as the 11 I am wondering if this battery will hold out when it is minus 10 degrees here. Of course as we can see the truck is turning off the height adjustment when it is not running to conserve the battery so the engineers must have realized this was an issue and incorporated a fix. I just wish their fix was a better charging system and a better battery. I did go into the radio controls and turn off the feature that allows the lights and radio to stay on for 30 seconds after the truck is turned off to try and reduce the drain.
