Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you.

Expert:  tims auto repair replied 4 months ago.

from the way you explain..

it sounds as if you need to load test the batteries with them disconnected from the truck.

iy would seem your drivers side battery may have a dead cell and needs replaced

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Its a brand new one
Expert:  tims auto repair replied 4 months ago.

new doesnt mean they are good..

do a load test on them both to see if the voltage drops on either.
