Truck struggles to start sometimes

Ok I haven't been on in a long time been working on my new project (89 supra) recently my truck has been starting funny. It has good battery's, it will start up fine cold no problem I will drive it all day go to turn it on sometimes and it seems like it has dead battery's, this happens probably once a week. Then I will go home 20 min later go in the truck and if will fit over perfect.

I checked the battery terminals I don't clean them yet

What would cause it to crank over fast most of time even after sitting for days. But sometimes even with a warm engine it struggles to turn over sometimes..,,

A bad connection somewhere.
Clean your bat terminsls and every other term on the starting circuit.
this includes between the starter and bellhousing.

x2 on cleaning the terminals, also check the battery cable terminals, mine had a small crack on one of the ground cables it would just randomly not start, other times it would... that solved my problem, hope it helps and good luck
