Could be the alternator, but you may also have a parasitic draw that's killing the batteries.

Check your battery cables also along with having your alt checked. I.had a positive batt cable that ran over the top of the radiator and intercooler that had chafed and caused me to destroy alternators and run my batts down.

I used meter set on continuity and put one lead on the positive terminal and the other on the frame, radiator, and intercooler. And found the problem. I wrapped the cable in about 4 wraps of red electrical tape, covered it in a piece of heater hose and all was good.

Check your ground cables and their mounts
