It sounds like some type of a parasitic draw is causing the battery to go dead. It’s hard to tell what it could be without testing it.

If you have some type of volt meter, these videos from Eric O will help explain how to find it. He has some other videos on the subject too.



And here’s one from Eric the cat guy that might be a little more tot he point.
