Troubleshooting charging system

Can anyone on here give me some tips as how to troubleshoot charging system on a 2015 700?
My issue is battery runs down after about 15 starts. Putting a charger on battery seems to recharge. I get 12.95 V off battery and 14.35 when machine is running.
I don't have an ammeter to put in line to see if it actually is charging.

Thanks for the help.

If you are getting 14.35 volts at the battery when the engine is running, that means the charging system is operating properly. I think you need a new battery. Have it tested somewhere. Did it get discharged a number of times?

Another thing that could be happening is there may be a positive wire grounded somewhere which is continually draining the battery. That can be hard to find sometimes. Start with checking any additional wiring you installed n the machine for lightning etc.
