I have a 1997 7.3 PSD manual 4x4.

I have new batteries as of 2 months ago, the alternator checked well at the parts store as of 2 months ago. new starter as of 2 months ago.

this morning, the truck didn't want to start, felt like low batteries, so I threw the trickle charger on it and 15 min later it started up fine, on my ride in to work I see that the charge meter on the dash is low, comes up a bit with revs but then returns to a low state. 15 min drive to work, the tachometer dips with the turn signals, and when the lights come on. lights were only on for 2 min. now its acting like it wont start again. low state of charge on the batteries.

I'm goin gto throw the trickle charger on it again and go over the fuses in the power box, and the fuse box, examine lines from the alternator... any other help is much appreciated...

Have the alternator checked again. Sounds like it took a dump.
