Battery Problems

After not quite two years my batteries are not staying charged. It happens most when it is cold. I am charging one of the batteries. I have two questions:

1) Is 2 years the average time for battery life on PSD's ?
2) Do I only have to charge one of the batteries, and the other battery will charge automatically since it is connected via cables.

Thanx

Bob~!

They should last for years and i woulkd replace them as a pair. If your truck is two years old it is under warranty so take it to the dealer to have sorted out

Mine were slow to crank and would drain down quickly with the radio on while working, after just 2 years. I did not replace under warranty

The new ones make a big difference.
