Battery Trouble

Hey guys, idk if this is right section to post this in, but I'm having trouble with my battery right now. I'm having to jump it every time I drive it. I just went to an Auto Zone and got a test done on it and the guy there said that the battery itself was completely fine so it must be a parasitic load on the battery. I'll drive it during the day(once I jump it) and it'll be completely fine (the charge is at about 13-15 volts once I start driving it around) but then the battery will lose the charge overnight. So I was thinking its some sort of parasitic load thats draining it. Idk if it's a ground or short or something. But yeah, it'll be completely fine when I'm driving it but lose it's charge over night. Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Check any electrical mods first. Lights, LEDs, amplifiers, cb, etc. is anything connected direct to battery or fuse box? If it isnt pooping on you around town, then the alternator should be good as well. Let us know any further info

It's better to regret something you did do, than to regret something you didn't do.

sounds like the guy who checked that battery may not have been accurate on his diagnosis. my jeep did the same thing when the battery was dying or dead.
