|Connect to the solar battery then out the cab window.....|

|...stretching all the way to the battery....yes!|
So the plan is to let the solar system charge the truck battery for the rest of today disconnecting as the sun goes down. Then see if the truck will start itself tomorrow (fingers crossed) which would demonstrate that the truck battery retains a charge. If not just give it a "solar jump" tomorrow, dump tanks and trash at the BLM office, then go to the Yuma Walmart and have them install a new battery. While it's great to be have the solar jump option, infinitely better is having a reliable battery (think driving rainstorms). I'll let you know how things work out.
