Did you find out what caused your starting issue on the 40?
The battery was 95% charged when I got home - alternator not an issue. I discovered that the heater blower motor was on low for the two hours that I was at Daily Grind, which likely drained the battery enough to cause the starting issue. It's hard to hear normally when on low, but with the wind it was impossible. And diesels need a strong battery. No troubles starting since then!
