If I charge the battery with a trickle charger and then let it sit unplugged, the battery seems to hold its charge for 24hrs. It will start.
If I drive the car a distance and then let it sit for 5-8hrs without charging the battery, it won't start.
The parasitic amp draw when car is sitting is 0.1A.
Based on what's going on I think its perhaps that the alternator isn't putting out enough to charge the battery at 13.5V-13.V?
