Diesel Boosting?

Hey all,

As we do a lot of long distance hauling and boondocking, Iíve been wondering about our strategy if our truck ever has a battery problem and wonít start.

Iím going to start traveling with a heavy duty booster kit, picked this one for now, which claims it can boost up to a 10L diesel:

Does anyone have experience boosting diesel trucks using this method?

I have a jump starter that I keep in my car that has come in handy so many times. Not for myself (yet), but for others I camp with. It starts cars with practically zero perceived effort! They're pretty magic.

Looks like have a big one appropriately sized for you diesel. These modern lithium jump packs will easily do the deed.

Great thread. When my gmc diesel batteries were low it required two battery packsóOne for each battery. It wouldnít start powering just one battery with one jumper battery pack.

I wonder if we actually need to carry two of these. If so thatís a bummer.
