Default New ZTR battery not charging

I have only 8 hours on my brand new Ferris ZTR and today it wouldn't start. I noticed it sounded like it was having a hard time turning over when starting and after turning it on and off over the course of a few yards it got progressively worse until it wouldn't start at all. I jumped it off with my truck and it ran fine. Let it run for about 20 minutes and battery held no charge.Is there anything that I could have done to drain battery? I am new to using these machines but I take the key out when i am not on the machine always and don't know of anything that would drain the battery. I'm taking to the dealer tomorrow if I can't get this figured out. Very frustrating considering how much those machines are to have a breakdown that early.

Delete is closed Sunday and Monday. I'm going to check fuses and see if I can fix this afternoon. Thanks for the insight. Will let you know what happens.

When you can't start it and check the voltage output at the battery, what's the best way to see if the voltage regulator is bad when it won't start?
