167K Miles. Replaced weak battery, Alternator is < 2 yrs old < 20K miles. Drive for ~ 2 hrs turn off and have to wait ~ 1 hr and requires a jump to start. No warning lights come while driving does not over heat. Everything else seems to be in good working order. Any ideas what is wrong or what to check and how to check it?

    This could be several things, like a drain on the system, a worn starter that gets hot and needs an extra battery to get it to turn over the engine etc. Does it start fine when it is cold after sitting over night?

    here are some shops:
