the 1st winter i had my 4500 diesel it got real cold and starting became a problem.
Like yours during warm weather starts fine. Some times takes a little longer BUT that is low battery voltage.
1st clean up and repair, battery cables and connections. Make sure you have the heavy duty tractor/truck cables not whimpy car ones.
2nd charge battery over nite until its fully charged
my experience is if its btw 30-35 it will take some extra cranking to start.
Below 30 and it will take more. BUT if my batteries are topped off with a charge i can start it without ether. i only use ether below 20 and only after i try starting it without it 1st.
When the batteries are not well charged it will crank and crank and take forever to start as the crank speed is too slow.
I have added a inline rad hose heater and a battery heater. With those i now almost never use ether.
