Goes dead while driving, or when parked? If parked a long time, might be residual power use somewhere. If not...

Since it's new, it could be bad alternator, or regulator (which is built into the alternator) or loose ground or even a bad battery. Should be covered under warranty.

Even if everything is off, there are parasitic drains such as the keep alive memory in the radio and other things like that. Also make sure if it has a heated mirror that the switch for it is turned off. You might consider a Trik L Start which feeds a small amount of current from the house batteries to the chassis battery to keep it's charge. You might also try a 12 volt ampmeter and put it around the red/positive wire on the battery and it will measure the resting draw.
