    Update: after that overnight charge and successful start, it started many times but got slower each time for a few days. Sitting 2 or 3 days again and it was dead. I called dealer and asked (why not) if they wanted the whole truck to diagnose or just bring in the battery, and if ok to charge the battery or have it towed in so they can verify the "dead condition." Must be a slow week cause they wanted it dropped off the next morning (yesterday). I charged it overnight again and started fine. They did diagnose it yesterday as a dead battery, with no drain found by testing the truck but needed it overnight, maybe they didn't get to it soon enough to get a battery ordered or it took a day to deliver one, no big deal to me, they finished it up today, a $0.00 "please sign here" tag and I drove away. No hassles.
    I'm 2/2 no-hassle experiences with my dealer so far which is good. Must have just been a weak crappy battery, will see. The new one isn't "new" but dated 7/16 so hope it lasts.
