    Check your current draw with everything turned off. You can do this with a multimeter, but make sure everything is turned off!!! If it's higher than 50mA or so, then something is drawing current. Then pull out each fuse in turn, and see when the current drops to minimal. When you have found the offending circuit, look it up in the ETM (there are online versions), and check everything on that circuit...

    That's the best way to sort out if a current draw is flattening your battery. Otherwise it's probably your alternator.
