Start up problems

So everyday when I go to crank up the jeep, it sounds like the battery is dying. So I took it to auto zone to get it tested and everything passed. Including the alternator and starter. Any ideas what it might be?

It starts on the first, but it takes a while. And when I drive for a whole, leave for maybe 2 hours and get back in its fine.

sounds to me like your battery is being drained like you have a small draw somewhere. small enough to when you drive around and stuff its not enough to notice but when it sits over night its enough to drain it down. ive seen this before because everything will still test good because nothing is actually bad but theres a draw to weaken things up. idk if this helps at all but good luck.

Would having the air on when starting draw this power?

i wouldnt think so. theres another thread on here that talked about that and i think i conclusion was that when starting it puts all the power to starting and nothing else so i wouldnt think thatd do it. id check for maybe a little light or loose wires or something of that nature.
