Angry optima killer

need some info. im runnin 2 yellow top optimas in my 06 250 cc. the stock alt is puttin out 75 amps with nothin on. heard the stock alt was crap but when i charge the batts i get good readings on everything. but i went into wallyworld for about 40 min and the truck had a hard time startin. and when i was drivin down the road all the dash lights turned off and the headlights were so dim i couldnt see the road at night. when i got home and put a batt charger on it read 8. when i got an ohms tester i found it had a 1amp draw somewere between the fuse box under the hood and into the cab fuse box. i dont have anything wired in to the fuse box under the dash. it takes awhile for the batts to die. hoping someone had or knows of this prob or draw

Start pulling fuses 1 by 1 until the current draw stops.
