looks like you have something draining the battery (something electrical staying on) disconnect your battery negative terminal and connect a test light between the battery post and the wire clamp if the light comes on you have battery drain (make sure interior light is out when testing) you now need to go through all elctrical systems to trace the reason why ( check boot light goes out first this was a favorite cause)

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

My nephew had a similar problem and I was able to isolate a wire that was shorting out at the plug on the alternator. I'm not saying that it is the same problem, but I can tell you that he had charging problems and had the alternator replaced, but still got the intermittent charging problem. I took the car to an autoparts store and had them check the alternator output. While checking the output, I moved around some of the wires at the alternator to see if it made a difference in the output. I was able to narrow down one wire going into the plug that was shorting out. I pulled the wire from the plug and resoldered it and that fixed the problem. Just something to consider. Nothing is worse than intermittent electrical problems, so I sympathize. Hope this helped and best wishes.
