Waiting for AAA

So, I finally found some energy to get out and about on my week off... and the truck's battery is mostly dead. It's chronic problem with the truck. Unlike my old Subaru, turning off the ignition in this thing does not turn off power to every system, especially the cigarette lighters/power jacks. Since I have a radar detector plugged into one of them, there's always a drain. Not a big deal when I'm driving back and forth to work every day, but in a week when I haven't driven since Tuesday, the drain adds up.
