I think.both of you have valid points.

Heat is a killer but I think a frequent heavy draw on a lead acid starter battery also shortens battery life. Such as that from glow plugs and starter demands of a cold engine.

Proper battery and charging system maintenance by making sure all cable connections are bright & tight, cleaning posts, using felt washers, occasionally topping off with a goid charger, etc can all help to protect the batteries.

I have also read the common practice of trickle chargers is also a battery killer.

And, again, you guys are both right, 2-5 years is the typical life of a lead acid battery.
