Now, just this week, truck been dead since tuesday, went out today, truck started right up. When it goes dead, it is dead, no clicking, no nothing.

The motor home battery I couldn't teel you but if you're talking about the vattery for yhe charger, it's located in the Passenger side inside the trunk. There is a cover over it that has to be removed to get access to it. If jumping, there are posts next to the battery I believe designed just forr jumping. I would REALLY suggest just charging the motor home batteries or using a different vehicle to use. Have found on your kind of vehicle that sometimes when getting jumped or visa versa That it causes an electrical problem. there is a fuse link in the wiring directly (sort of) from the battery to the alternator. Have seen this fuse link blown a lot and MANY people change the alternator thinking the alt. is bad beause the battery goes dead not to mention the car letting you know thta there is a charging problem.Hope this helps.....
it can be a number of problems one can be you have something is staying on it can be a light in the boot,you alarm is wired wrong or a radio is not off or it can be the battery no good. By jumping the car with a jumper leads can damage the battery, or you alternator is not charging good. First to check your alternator you will need a volt meter and place the negative from your meter to the negative of the batter and the positive to the positive and start your car. If the reading is 14.3 V to 14.8 V your alternator is good than the problem it can be any of the other things that I indicated
have you replaced the battery? the car draws it's electricity from the battery, then the alternator replaces the charge to the battery. if the battery is shot and will no longer hold a charge the car will not stay running once you remove the charge as in removing the jumper cables
It's probably your alternator. When your alternator isn't working properly your battery provides all or most of the car's electrical power. Until you can replace the alternator you can disconnect one of your battery cables while the car is not in use and that will prevent the battery running down. One way to check if your alternator is the problem is to disconnect the negative battery cable while the car is running. If the car goes dead, it is very likely an alternator problem. It usually requires about an hour of labor to replace an alternator. Most alternators can be rebuilt at an alternator repair shop and that is cheaper than buying a new or re-manufactured one.
the problem is either in the batterie or alternator. junkyard alternators are a 50/50 chance of working. you should go to your local parts store and have them do a batterie/ alternator test. they dont require you to take them out the car.
