I have owned a 2004 F 150 5.4 4x4 since new. About 2 years ago after Hurricane Irma (FT Myers) I began to have battery problems. Battery was replaced TWICE at a Ford dealership and then they replaced the starter which had corroded contacts. Each step was after the truck was kept for several days. Within weeks the problem returned and after a week long period the mechanic replaced the alternator. Weeks later it resurfaced and it was left with a mechanic who tried to locate the source of the short to no avail. Eventually I had a kill switch installed so as to not have my battery drain. Sometime it would drain after a week and often it would drain overnight or when left parked for a few hours. I am from RI / MA and I do not know of any reliable reputable (electrical specialty) mechanics in the area. I'm at wits end and now the truck basically sits in my driveway. Any ideas or referrals for the South Fort Myers area? Note: after Hurricane Irma I did drive through standing water however my truck is somewhat high up and at no time did it stall out or present any obvious problems. Thanks
