I don't drive my car all that much and had the battery die on my 4-5 times this year. After the first two or so times I replaced the battery. I just went outside to drive to work and the battery is completely drained. It's been about 3 days since a roomette moved the car up the driveway. I'd normally assume hey left some lights on but this has been happening a lot lately. What do I need to test/replace?

Do you have RNS? That is known to cause issues. Other than that, you have an electrical problem if your battery is draining, or your alternator is bad. Either way you need to start troubleshooting. I'd suggest getting a Bentley and start chasing wires.

I may have a bad alternator, but I just found out that this time - it was my roomette leaving a dome light on when he moved my car. *sigh*
