When there's a drain on the battery like this it requires a special troubleshooting procedure called a "parasitic draw test" to determent the cause of the problem. Performing this test and identifying the issue is a fairly advanced procedure and should go to a professional. If you want to address this yourself get a wiring diagram, voltmeter and google "parasytic draw test" to find out how to do this.
