Jump starters with a lead acid battery are very similar to each other and many are generic label engineered imported items. The manual mostly covers the safe useage and operating procedures that are mostly intuitive - few people that know nothing about inflating tyres or jump starting a dead vehicle would own a jump starter...

Jump starters are mostly so similar the instruction booklet for one will serve for many others. There is really only a few things to remember - a battery can explode so if sparks have to be made make sure they are nowhere near the (vehicle) battery, observe the correct polarity (failure to do so can be very expensive) and top up charge your jump starter after each use and monthly regardless (leaving it in a discharged or semi-discharged state will quickly render it useless).

Get a meter and connect it at the battery terminal connectors while somebody starts the truck. Don't connect directly to the battery posts. If you get a big voltage drop, it might be the connectors not cleaned or tightened properly, or could be the battery. Many car alarms sound when the voltage isn't high enough. Also when you had the avital installed, they had to disconnect the battery, so it could be that.

Longer lasting engine maintenance

Your engine will last a lot longer as far as the main engine components if you 1)change your engine oil at vehicle recommended mfg intervals.TIP: if you live in hot climates you should change your oil more often and at less miles .2500 to 3000 ml. every 3 months because the climate the hot temperatures break down oil viscosity at a higher rate thus needed more frequent oil changes for the best engine engine lasting performance.2) always use the recommended weight example (5/30w)TIP: Also for best results the recommended rating of the oil for example on the back of the oil bottle is a rating 2 or 3 letters in a circle .Older vehicles use a different rating than newer vehicles and some times they are not interchangeable this information should be available at your local parts store.3)TIP;: Always use the recommended (brand) oil filter.With the way cars are now especially ones with overhead cams and chains ,aftermarket filters might not supply the same pressure aspects of the original oil filter, So as far to have less or more pressure than that is needed to maintain these components correctly with the correct pressure.
Thanks hope this helps
