Check the wires leading away from the alternator, also, replace the alternator, check your vehicle grounds.

If the battery won't stay charged: 1. the alternator is not good or you have a defect in the regulator or wiring. 2. You have a parasitic draw. There is a defective switch that's remaining closed, creating a constant drain, or a defect in wiring that's shorted and doing the same thing. These can be difficult to find, and you should use a multi-meter at each system, fuse, to check for current flow. Once you narrow down the system, trace lines until you find the cause.
