Hello, my name is Rusty. If you don't use the remote, the battery stays charged, right? That would indicate that the remote start is draining your battery, let's find out what. I need you to test these things:

Start your truck manually, set your alarm, and tell me if your battery drains.

Start your truck manually and don't set the alarm, tell me if your battery drains.

Remote start your truck and don't set the alarm, tell me the results.
