Replace alternator, maybe battery too. It is possible to get faulty alternator. Go to locat part store to see if they will check you r alternator and battery for you. They should have a piece of equipment to let you know if either or both are faulty.

Truck will not keep and charge over night

The battery won't keep a charge or it won't when it is in the truck? Will the battery keep a charge if you put it on the charger and then unplug it overnight, all of this out of the truck. Then in the morning will it start the truck. If not your battery is bad. If it keeps a charge and will start the truck and then it goes dead after several hours, your truck is drawing a load on the battery. You will have to find what has been left on or shorted out.

Battery keeps going flat after 10 mins driving

I would suspect that the problem is with the charging system not charging the battery, as opposed to the battery being bad.

Battery not charging already replaced alternator, battery,and starter what else could cause it to not keep charged

Keep charged and charging are 2 entirely different things., find out if battery and alt are charging or not. if they are, then there is a draw and a shop will need to find out what is drawing the battery down. I think you have wasted enough money guessing.
