Or two much draw?

Just won a real nice 2019 UXV560e S4 with less than 27hours on it. Had JD put led lights on the top, front is 20 in, 420watt led, sides are 4 in 60 watt cubes and rear is a 12in 72 watt led. Seems that after two evenings of riding around with the grandkids, with the lights running part of the time, after dropping the kids off last night gator wouldn't start, like a dead battery. Battery was new in May.
Too much lights for the charging system? Or maybe some other issue? After it sat for 15 min, it did start and made it home, but this morning acts just like a dead battery…

Suggestions?

You may want to evaluate output versus what is being consumed. Might be close to the limit.

I’d keep regular lights off when using all the auxiliary lighting.

Thanks!

The guy working on it owned the John Deere Dealership for most of West Texas for 50 years until sold out…and is a long time friend…and opened another dealership for a competing line but works on Deere products checked it out and said should be fine. Unit already has the high output alternator and stator/mag but they didn’t do the regulator at the same time…
