Had simular issue, replaced battery and thought all was golden. Was recommeneded to take it to the local O'riley auto parts place as they have a tester they can put on the battery and check that and the alternator. Indicated that the alternator was heading south. Recently had replaced the power steering pump and added just a bit to much fluid in the resv and leaked some over the sides. Which happens to sit right above the alt. Easily replaced the alt (and belts whiel I was there) and alls good with the roof down.
