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
