Unhappy Starts.. shuts off kills batterries

Hello everyone,
Quick run-down about me, I'm a single father of 2 boys, we travel with the fair circuit in the summer and fall and we are in Central NY for school.
That said I have a curse every time we come back to this town my truck begins to have issues. Well this year being no exception, I had money for an apartment and in less than a week I was broke and out of ides for the truck. I have replaced the 3 solenoids in the motor bay 1) fender 2&3) glow plug area, 2 Brand new 10/2018 batteries, a new starter and a new alternator. I'm broke barely making money working with bad weather and cold and I'm on the verge of losing the place we are staying for the time being. With a friend in their home that's been recently sold, so I have to fix my truck so I can get a reliable indoor job and a new camper for my kids to live in until we leave town again. All my money has been going into my truck and food. When it starts she runs solid for about 10min and shuts down as if someone turned off the key and when I start it again the batteries slowly drain to nothing while she runs. I need help! Sorry for the life story just trying to personify the situation I'm in so y'all are aware how desperate I am. The truck has around 254,000 miles on it and regular oil air and fuel filter changes. She's my work truck, Dr. appointment truck and part-time business vehicle.
Any help is appreciated,

Thank You,
