What you do is power off the machine, and disconnect the negative battery cable. Put a test light or volt meter between the battery negative terminal and the disconnected negative battery cable.
You will likely have a light or voltage reading...Then you start disconnecting things....I suggest the alternator.
When you have the correct component disconnected and the test light or volt meter shows no current.
If this component is the alternator, they have diode sets inside (or somewhere else in the charging circuit) Typically one diode fails and this causes the draw that you describe. The system often still charges, but at a slightly lower capacity with the failed diode.
