    Are you plugging it in?
    Running a winter additive?
    A battery on its way out?

    I’m not plugging it in, and I just replaced one of the batteries that was original to the truck (2016) a few weeks ago. Didn’t get a new battery for the second battery, as it was not the original Mopar battery. I’m going to replace that one too once I get the chance

    I didn't even try mine. Just hit the route with shovels and the ATV.

    Op I will work when it's cold. I like the cold. Just try to keep it so face exposure to frostbite is more then 30 minutes.

    I have mulched leaves when it started snowing. mower did fine, but I was freezing my Bu-- off. It is too cold to run a mower when you can not stand to be on it.

    How does your atv work? Im thinking about getting one in a couple years for that exact thing.
