Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
What will need to be done is a proper ignition off draw test. The problem may be intermittent to a degree which would explain why the shops have not been able to find the problem. Testing has to be done at the time the problem is happening. What will need to be done is set up an ammeter across a disconnected battery cable and post, verify the draw is present and then remove fuses one at a time to see when the draw drops.
The problem could be a light staying on or coming on by itself while the van sits. It could also be a module that is staying awake and drawing current, staying awake will keep the communication bus awake and in turn keep other modules awake. It can also be a failure in the alternator.
One of the most common issues I saw with these was an internal failure in the body control module causing lights to come on and door locks to cycle while the van sits.
