Battery might be defective; maybe a dead cell. A bad alternator will not keep a good battery charged and if it doesn't, you could drain down in four days or less. You checked for draw, but did you do this properly? If battery and alternator are good, you might have a parasitic drain in one of the circuits that can be difficult to find; even with a multi-meter. Go to a car parts store and have battery & alternator checked, probably free. Then you'll know where to start.
