No start. Cold. 3 batteries!

Truck's been sitting 2weeks now. No issues before with no starting. Batteries are good and i added 3 batteries to boost. Won't turn over. One click only. Any thoughts?

One click is most likely your starter. Take the starter off and connect it to a battery to see if it works.

Starters are relatively cheap, I got mine at Advanced Auto for around $129. The good news is that they have a lifetime warranty. And they do honor it, I've used my warranty twice already when I burned out the starter I replaced for a cold no start. Just make sure you keep the receipt. Also there are 3 bolts that hold the starter on, two are visible and one is hidden above the starter. You will have to use an extension to get to it.

I was reading....and i understand that it's possible that if the air con clutch is locked on....it could stop the starter from turning.

It's possible, but make sure you test the starter. If it doesn't pop out and spin then you know it's bad. Also it may pop out and run weakly. A starter that's good will actually generate enough torque to move the whole starter as it runs if it's sitting on the ground while you test it. So it won't actually cost you anything to test it. Might as well run the test and see of that's the problem before assuming anything else caused the issue.
