Arrow slow start up

First, im new to this site..i always type question into google and it seems to take me here, so i figured why not join.

Anyway i just bought my first diesel 4 days ago..2005 f 250 6.0 25k miles custom 16" sway away lift..ill post pics later.

But i noticed when i go to start the truck..it takes longer than normal for it to turn over and start..i dont know if its because im not used to starts a diesel or what?? Glowplugs warm up quick.Any ideas? Also..i went camping last night and was playing my radio with the engine off for about..3 hrs..within the 3 hrs id say i started my truck about 4 times so my battery wouldt die..the next morning my battery was DEAD. my electric step would barley pop out..what would cause that because i did start it through out the night??

truck info:afe intake,superchip programmer,borla exhast

Thanks for any replys
Joe

you think about replacing the batterys? are they the ones that came in the truck when new?

mine would crank sometimes longer then usual, replaced batteries and it fires right up now

check your connections, clean them and then try. if it's new batteries, and no corrosion, start looking at the starter. and as far as the OP goes, if it is your batteries, always replace both.
