NO START

I've been having this problem since winter. and i thought with the warmer weather it might stop, but it hasnt. If i leave my truck unplugged overnight, it wont start in the morning unless it was a very warm night, but if i have it plugged in, it will start up just fine. I was wondering if anyone had an idea to what the problem is. Thank you in advance
