Sounds like you have a parasitic draw going on. You'll need to do some testing to find it. Here is a good video on how to do it:

Also check all those battery and alternator connections, a loose connection can make it seem like a dead battery. I have a van with a bad positive battery post connector, it works most of the time when it doesn't I raise the hood and wiggle it, starts every time after that. I need to replace it.
