ummm a few that always have power are the cigarette lighter...and i think that possibly your dome lights are always powered....just depends on how you tap into it.....

good batteries can be bought at advance auto for pretty cheap.....

Took the truck to the dealership today and had them test out the electrical system. Turned out that one of the plates in my passenger side battery warped into another one and the battery short circuited itself. I didnt even know that could happen but apparently its caused by repeated charging and killing of the battery. So one new battery and all is well again
