Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that the batteries themselves are failing if they are low quality batteries, or there may be a draw. If a component is still drawing current when the vehicle is at rest then it will kill the battery. A draw can be intermittent making it tough to find.

Where are the batteries coming from?
