Car alarm and radio have continuous drains, pull them first. If is real quick like over night just pull one fuse a day, or pull them all and reinstall them. You might even be able to see it just watching voltage across the battery with a digital multi-meter.

Stratus has been dead a few morning over the last 6 months, completely flat by morning. I pulled every fuse that wasn't needed, was ok for a few weeks, then dead again. Cameron (14 yo who drives it) was replacing the radio, next day it was dead again). This time I saw the ignition was in ACC position, but no key.

I'm not sure where all the power is going, I think something draining a good battery overnight would be getting hot enough to start a fire, except for the few things made to take/make heat, lights, rear defrost and mirror defrost.
