That's what the dealer said but it's not a warranty issue so they said I would have to pay for it which is not happening seeing it's a new truck with 14,000 miles and snow plow package it should be built for that purpose not only mechanically but electrically as well also talked to guy that owns company that installed plow said doesn't need two just a heavier one will be fine this happens on occasion with the new electrical systems being so finicky in new vehicles there very sensitive to the slightest voltage fluctuations

Pretty ballsy on your first day here.

 

Keep mouthing off to a moderator and you won't have to worry about any advice.

Well don’t expect a lot of help because most people are going to stop reading after 10 seconds.

The electronics aren't that finicky. Under 8.5ish volts, modules shut down. Been that way since EEC IV in the 80s. No alternator on the planet can stop transients dropping voltage, because it takes a bit of time for the alternator to react. It is also harder to make more when the voltage is low to begin with. To reduce transients it needs physical storage. In other words, It needs 2 batteries, and the OE one is probably failing. It is NOT a warrantable item, as per Ford.  

Things age. The battery, your plow, alternator, etc. It probably takes just a bit more amps to run than last year and your battery is a bit older.

Well, forming a properly structured sentence is a good idea ....just like either getting your truck upgraded via TSB or getting a better battery. I suggest an Interstate Megatron MTP-65HD.
