300SL Battery Issues?

I have a 1990 300sl and battery goes dead in less than 5 days?
Key is not left in ignition. I heard alternator could be draining battery?
Anyone know a decent Mercedesmechanic in Dallas area and not a dealership.Thx

Welcome to the forums. I'm a newbie also and still learning how things work. One thing I've found is that you will get a lot more help if you post your question in the forum for your vehicle. There are some pretty knowledgeable people in the series-specific forums just itching to help out. Yours is R/C107 SL/SLC Class - Benzworld.org - Mercedes Benz Discussion Forum

Although I am not familiar with your car it could be a mutitude of things. But the first thing I would do would be to go to Autozone and get them to load test the battery. It could be going bad. That's a quick, easy, and cheap thing to eliminate before spending any money.
