Assuming the battery is good, you have a short somewhere in the electrical system that is draining your battery. You can confirm this by disconnecting the battery each time it is parked. If that solves problem, a short is confirmed. A professional has the devices to locate the site of the short.

What is wrong with the battery if it wont stay charged with a new alternator on a Chrysler 5Th avenue?

Your alternator is probably rebuilt and not really new. I have had this problem several times and I have bought a new battery and alternator. The alternator keeps your battery charged and powers your electrical system, so even when driving you can lose all power in the car from the alternator draining your battery. Take the battery and alternator to an auto store and they will test both for free. Ask them about the difference in a rebuilt alternator and a brand new one. This is a very common problem.
