ive read and read but still no luck

ok heres the deal. when the outside temp get below 45 and my truck sits for hours unless plugged in it will not start. i have to crank and crank and crank til finally it fires. ive replaced my glow plugs and the glow plug control module about 7 months ago. mine has that module not the relay as it is a california truck. ive lived in oklahoma for 5 years now and this is the first winter ive ever had to remember to plug my truck in at night or else i wont be gettin to work on time the next morning. and on top of that i also switched to 5w40 synthetic a couple months ago with no change in how it starts. also shortly after having the glow plugs and gpcm replaced i had to have the under valve cover harnesses replaced. also when its cold and finally decides to start it pukes white smoke. everyone gives me grief at work askin where i got that 'white smoke' tune from lol. but it does clear up after the truck starts to warm up a bit. i dont know guys im stuck and have no clue what to do. everything ive read points to things that are essentially new componets. so wtf do i do now?

also i am running 2 optima batteries that are a couple years old but should still be good.

Install an indicator light of some sort on your dash that is hooked up to the load side of the gpr to make sure your relay is actually coming on.

Also make sure your hpop isnt isn't draining after you shut it off.
