Are you waiting for the start indicator light to go out? Your truck should start with no problems at that temp. Your intake preheater may not be working up to par. If your truck runs ok once started and starts easily when warm, that's where I would look good luck

chances are that your alternator is not properly charging your battery or, your battery needs a replacement cause it sounds like your battery is charging off the outlet when you are plugging in over night.

it sounds like your engine control unit (eng cpu) is not getting the right signal from your block heater sensor at times and knowing Cummins you should always turn your key to power on first for about 30 seconds and let your ECU and truck CPU run the self tests that are neccassary and then turn it over to crank. if this is not the issue then see if the dealer will "REFLASH" your CPU's for you and go from there. This way you know that you have the most udated software in your truck CPU's and then if it remains then you can start looking at replacing mechanical parts. Let me know what comes out of it.
