    On my 05 ram w/the hemi when it is cold outside like this am(22 degrees) the volt meter needle was 1/2 way from the middle line to what I would call the 3/4 line. Now when it's not cold it will either stay at the middle line or maybe 1/16 past the middle line. Everything seems to be ok just wondering. This is my first dodge truck. Thanks.

    Batteries drain more in cold weather, so have to charge back up. Plus, you are probably running your heat, so the fan draws power too.
