  So I would go back to the old saying. Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result is ?

Can't be left as it is. Something not right is there. Needs positive help from people who've suffered similar.

If sure the battery is sound & the charging system is not faulty causing a draw. Quickest & least stressful  way is to call in an auto electrician.

I had a bad relay that was drawing down the current.
That's why I suggested checking your relays.
It's a remote possibility, but a possibility.

After some thought, I replied, "Doesn't matter, as long as I'm going."

Scotty,

Respectfully it is time to stop chasing your tail.

If you cannot isolate the problem between battery, charging system or parasitic drain you need a professional with the skills and test equipment quickly to do so.  I would whistle up a mobile auto electrician and put this to bed.
