When a good battery keeps dying it's because something is draining power or because the alternator isn't recharging it. Check the charing system first. If that doesn't work, then diagnose a parasitic battery drain. See this post on how to diagnose and find the culprit that's draining your battery. https://ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/battery-dead-morning/

Either the battery is too weak to hold a charge or you have a draw on the electrical system. Complete a parasitic draw test.
