Truck is going to sit for 3 weeks

02 7.3 and I'm going on vacation for three weeks, what should I do to the truck before leaving? Mind you I'm in alaska and the truck will be sitting outside an apartment plugged in. Should I dissconnect the negatives and positives from the batteries, obviously full tank of fuel additive in the fuel? Any ideas thanks.

Chris

Three weeks really isnt that long imo. You could disconnect the batteries for piece of mind, but I dont think Id do anything to it.

I wouldn't do a damn thing. Mine has sat for 2 months before. All I did was put a battery tender on it for that long, but probably didn't need it.

Mine sits for 7-8 months out of the year (I work overseas) all I do is fill it up and put a battery tender on it, never been an issue.
