Question Car repeatedly dying even after new battery, alternator good

Hi, I need some help! I have a 2000 nissan altima. over the past 6 - 9 months I get random dead batteries. I always thought it was me because i sometimes sit in the car with it off and the key turned back for music but never more then 10 minutes or so. it happened for the millionth time last week. I started it, went back out 3 hours later and it was dead. so i replaced the battery thinking I solved the Problem. Nope, because the next day it died again. when I say dead I mean DEAD can't automatically lock the doors or use the pull level for the trunk. its been 3 days since the new battery and it has happened twice. it hasn't happened in 24 hours but now I'm constantly wondering if my car is going to start every time I get in it. I had the battery checked just to make sure i didn't get a dud and I had my alternator checked because I was starting to think it was the alternator. I've been told 2 things
1. is that I need to rent a tool from autozone that checks fuses and go through each fuse one by one because there's a parasitic draw somewhere.
2. i was also told that inside my alternator is a voltage regulator and that sometimes it stops working and the alternator will still test good.
looking for any suggestions. also will rust battery terminals make this happen. Thank you!!
