LEAVING TRUCK STAND
This has no doubtably been asked before. I've tried searching but can't come up with the terminology which would have been used to start a tread in this subject.
What is the safe procedure for letting a 2003 F250 7.3L Powerstroke with an Auto Transmission stand unstarted for a long period of time
I have a Edge Evo2 which I'll instruct the wife to return to stock and disconnect from the OBD port.
I am presuming that I should get her to disconnect both batteries.
I will get her to take the truck for a good long run to ensure batteries are well charged prior to doing anything.
I have left the truck before for about 10 days and I had to jump start it, so am aware of the KAM having the effect of slowly draining the batteries.
I also believe if the Edge is left connected, it can take a small draw as well.
So what do you fellas do in this situation?
Does disconnecting the batteries for a long period of time have any detrimental effects?
The reason for asking is that I'm at sea for the next 4+ weeks and the wife may have to fly interstate to attend to a family crisis and could be away for an extended period of time.
Your quick attention and answers based on experience would be much appreciated
