Hi guys, If I’ve seen this before I don’t remember it. Can you jump your 5’er batteries from the truck?

GEEZE My first impression was you were talking about jumping the 5er like the Dukes. Maybe I need more coffee.

Not sure what you mean by jump. Do you mean can you link your truck batts to your FW to charge them - like with jumper cables? Don't most do this when you plug in the tow power cable? But yes, using cables would be the same as linking them together, just temporarily.

To maybe pull in a slide or raise the jacks? Why not? But, your cables are going to get REAL hot.

I wasn’t sure you could jump a 6 volt batterie with a 12 volt battery?
