Did they test the output only, 13.5 to 14v if it was all that was tested there are two other possibilitys that the alternator needs testing for Voltage regulation which will fry a battery (over charge and cells collapse)or the diodes have failed which will flatten a battery overnight.

Did you test the Alternator on or off the truck? It might be a problem with the control system to the Alternator. The regulator need a battery feed to work, It is usually ran through an alternator fuse.

If you have changed the alternator and regulator, about all that could be left would either be a short circuit that is draining current away, or a bad ignition warning light bulb. That is because the power to energize the field of the alternator, comes through this dash bulb.

You need to replace the flasher module, this is the module that controls the "Blinking" function of the lights, its a mostly a common part that you can get at any auto parts store for less than 10 bucks and is located in the Fuse panel under the dash, its round in shape in one corner of the panel. mostly they are green in color.
