c34 starting problem

I have a 1986 c34.Ihad the same problem,I had to use both battries to start.I relaced all battry cables with larger ones (welding leads) Battries were so far from engine small cables could not handle the draw.Installed two Wal-Mart marine battries,engine now starts on one battery.If your starter battery is close to engine,Iwould check connections and starter.
