You need to perform a draw test with an ammeter,this should be done from the pos post to the positive cable.It should have .02 amps draw or less.

I didn't know if there is a common problem with these trucks draining the battery u could tell me about
Expert:  Ray M. replied 7 years ago.
The only problem that I have seen that could be called common is the alternator will short out inside and cause a drain,If you unplug the alt and remove the bettery wire from it the drain should go away.
