Repair status: It's all done!! Special thanks to scontivt for the tip to check the alternator
. I put my meter back between the battery post and lead to fuse panel. Had the 2.8 amp drain. Removed the lead off the alternator and the drain disappeared. Guess it was draining thru the "bad" alternator. I happen to work at Auto Parts Warehouse as a driver, so I went over this afternoon and picked up a new alternator & installed it. Checked the battery lead and no drain. Started right up and took for a spin. Nice to be back in service again.
ps also many thanks from my wife as she loves to drive the scooby and was missing it.
