my battery keeps being drained i have to jump te vechicle several times a week we have replaced the battery twice battery is fine help

Hi Gayle.
Obviously there is a draw on the battery when the truck is off. the most likely cause to this is the rear wiper. Especially if it doesn't work or quit working. if the motor stopped and it wasn't fully parked when it quit working the motor will stay on even know it's not wiping the rear glass. Very common on that. Nothing else really comes to mind. with out seeing it I can't say for sure but if it's not the rear wiper your going to have to take it to a repair shop and they do what's called a parasitic draw test to find out what killing the battery. Good luck :-)
