p0405 EGR control circuit sensor a circuit low
p0460 fuel level sensor circuit malfunction
p0603 PCM processor keep alive memory (KAM) error

You have 2 codes that point to low battery voltage, 1378 (FICM supply) and the 0603 (KAM). Take your batteries out of the truck and run them down to an auto parts store for load testing. If they fail or test out as marginal, replace them as a set.
Before reinstalling them, place them on a charger individually and get them up to a 100% charge. Clean/inspect the connections and cables. This would be a good time to give the connections a spray of that anti-corrosion stuff too.

Just for kicks-and-giggles, I would then double check the health of my FICM. Easy enough if you have a multi-meter. Check out the directions HERE.

You remove the EGR valve?
If so, remove that plate and stick it back in there and plug it in. That should get rid of those two codes.
The P1000 is usually just a drive-time related code where the PCM was in the middle of some self-test and you shut the truck off. Clear that out and take her out for a 30 minute spin. That should clear that out.

I don't think that is a good idea. I don't know of anyone that has done that.
