    Yeah, the fall here is just kind of rain, but im from the mid-atlantic where the colors are cray cool looking and the air gets crisp. I miss that and it was a blend of that and the fall here. Even got a little snow at elevation.

    That's some gorgeous landscape. I don't know about other folks, but I'm certainly living vicariously through your travel posts. :thumbsup:

    definitely feels like time travel the farther north and the farther from snivelization.

    Help needed w/ 2016 AGM battery install:

    After a little more reading (@crashnburn80 :thumbsup:), seems like I'll need to add a voltage booster to properly charge the AGM battery (X2 27F). Additionally, the 2016 sounds like it's voltage monitoring differs from 2017+ ('16 -> Alt-S circuit vs. '17+ -> ECU)? Though, I'm still not sure which kit I need.

    Is this something any of you have done for a 3rd gen or otherwise that could help a brotha out with? @SaphiraTaco? Happy to pay for the time / space.

    My truck-fu skills have improved considerably working with several of you sensei out there, but electrical is still something I'm not comfortable with.

    The booster applies to the alt-s circuit. However, the 3rd gen (including 2016) removed the alt-s fuse, as it is all managed by the ECU. Information provided by the manufacture that it works for 2016 is incorrect. In theory one could use an add-a-fuse to the wire feeding the ECU that data, but to my knowledge nobody has done this yet.

    Another option is to get a charger/maintainer and plug it in once a month or so. I used this one when I had a Group31 AGM in my '16. I added a dedicated charging port in the front so I didn't have to pop the hood to charge it.

    So even now, almost 2020, and there isn't a kit / widely applicable solution for 3rd gens?

    That is slick. How long would you need to have it plugged in?

    I'm not sure this would work (depending on time needed to charge) as I have street parking only, in a highly congested area. Even if I did have an outlet to use, there's way too many sketchy people around to not have it f*cked with or stolen.

    I don't know how long it took, maybe a few hours. I would leave it overnight so that it had time to desulfate the battery also. I wrote CHARGER with sharpie on a piece of cardboard that I would put on the driver seat so I wouldn't forget and drive away with it plugged in.
