Are you SURE the alternator is charging? A simple voltmeter plugged into the lighter outlet will show you if it is. If it is, (and Im sure it is - but since I'm not there, I thought I better mention that) then:
Take a battery cable off, and put a meter in series with it and see for yourself what is REALLY going on.
The manual says that 35 mA, that is, .035 amp, is normal. If you measure more than that, start pulling fuses until the the current goes down - you will isolate it to a single fuse, usually, in no time. THEN the real work may start.
