first of all, do you have any aftermarket add ons (alarm, etc) that would cause a draw....
Secondly, Duane has a good method for checking for draw above, but not foolproof....The only way to accurately check for draw is with a DVOM and measuring in miliamps.....
If you dont feel like putting a lot of time into figuring out this problem, your best bet would be to buy battery disconnects. They are terminal ends with green plastic nobs. You turn the knobs to disconnect or re connect the batteries....biggest drawback on a truck your vingage is loss of radio statios and clock each time, since the older trucks dont have much for learned stratagy...
If you want to chase the problem down and fix it, let me know and ill get into further depth, but the first thing you will need is a DVOM or some other form of ammeter...
