Alternator. Have it tested.

Before I replaced anything I had it tested at O'Reilly's twice and it said it was good but I will give it another try, thank you. Any other ideas as to what it might be?

How about the battery ground cables and straps? If the battery keeps craping out there's a reason why it's not charging.
