Check the dogbone fuse to the aft of the battery. You should not have a problem jump starting the wing from your truck just use jumper cables from the battery and don't start the truck. Just thinking about it,my battery went bad in my jeep last week and I jump started it off the wing no problem either way. If your truck was running you probably blew the dogbone fuse.

If the dogbone fuse is good then measure the voltage on the battery terminals. If you have at least 12.6v then move upward toward the fuse, solenoid etc.

what you are describing is a bad battery. I had my truck battery die just that fast. I started the truck and moved it over to the garage. Removed the battery and put it in an old Honda my son was working on. Wouldn't crank it over. We checked everything then I put it back in my truck. Deader than a hammer. Yes they can fail that fast.

Follow the red wire from the battery to the first thing it hooks to. Peel back that rubber boot and it's under there. Just to the right of the battery.

Yeah, the main fuse and dogbone are one in the same. Like mentioned, followed the possitive lead, it should be right near the battery.
