Just wanting to ask a question in regards to this.A drive time of 10 or 15 minutes, especially after sitting all day in the cold is much too short to recharge your battery.
I'll bet the starting gets much worse after multiple days of cold weather.
Do you have any ability to plug in a battery minder while parked overnight?
Most batteries won't survive any extended period of this type of abuse. A load test will let you know if that battery is worth keeping.
The toaster style load testers, as linked above, are the best. You will never see false positive results on these.
When it comes to "abuse". Would the truck fair better by remaining outside in all temps vs being parked in a temperature controlled parkade?
Will be picking up a couple things today and see if the battery is the issue. It's a new battery and proper for the truck so just weird that the battery would be going out so soon
