Sounds like the alternator is not working to keep the battery charged. Should have the alternator checked out.

My thing with the alternator is I just replaced it not very long ago

Was a remanufactured alternator shouldn't be kicking the can so soon but I'll have it tested

The battery can be an issue load test it, then use a volt ohm meter to check the Alternators output at the battery terminals 13.2-14.8 volts when the vehicle is running. Check all connections on the alternator, clean and tight? and also ALL ground / earth straps..
