My Kodiak can't last more than 2 days or so and the battery is dead. I had to buy an extender to stay charged. Is this normal? It's not even a year old.

This definitely doesn't seem right...Are you doing something extreme with this machine that would tax the living heck out of the electrical system? The reason I ask is because if the machine is running it should be able to keep up with your electrical demands such as running your winch or light bar or even running stuff of your 12v outlet like cell phone charger air compressor stuff like that. I would probably take it in to the dealer see if they can troubleshoot it.

Need more details. What upgrades do you have from stock in the electrical system? How do you mean it doesn't last more than 2 days? In storage? Running it ? How many starts/stops?
With those batteries if you discharge them past a certain level - they're pretty much ruined, you would need to replace it regardless. Find the problem that caused it before you do that .

Still giving me problems. I'm going to buy a new battery before I take it in. I hope it's just that. Can anyone recommend a battery?

nothing extreme at all. And the only accessory is a Warn Winch.
maybe disconnect the hot wire on the winch and see if it continues to happen. maybe it's wired up incorrectly? i have aftermarket winch, it's hot all the time though... and i dont have any issues. can go a week without starting and it starts right up.
