Disconnect the auxiliary power cable from the under-hood distribution center that runs to the anti-lock brake controller. Remove the ignition relay from this distribution center (this will isolate/eliminate/indicate the problem as the ignition switch). Unplug any GPS add-on device, and any radar detector, stereo amplifier add-on, I-pod, trailer brake controller add-on, anything that did not come on the truck from the factory. These can be frustrating.

you cannot get this sort of information its like proverbal rocking horse brown stuff ,dont want people like me doing repairs that the dealer wants ------- what sort of amperage are you drawing ,as i suspect either a low reserve amperage battery in your terms its sulphated up and need renewing or the alternator diode pack has a diode breaking down .Trust me you test a battery with a voltmeter ,only test for a battery is a drop tester ,your car will draw power when not used ,anything from clock to alarm and radio memory ,so check the battery with a drop tester as i think this is your problem

I would start with a test of the alternator diodes if you have not done this yet. Otherwise, sounds like a stuck relay, which sometimes can be found by carefully touching each relay to find the one that is warm or hot while everything is off. Other possibles are a glove box light staying on when shut.
