I’ve had winches on lots of vehicles trucks jeeps etc but they were typically daily drivers so I never thought about the draw from a winch just sitting there. I recently let my teryx sit for a couple weeks while out of town and came back to an almost dead battery. Anyone else had this issue in the last? Will be doing a disconnect ASAP.

thanks.

something else is probably pulling the power down unless you have a wireless remote, then the receiver is probably drawing a bit listening for the signal. Your winch operator should be off when the key is in the off position. Do an amp draw test when the bike is switched off, lots of info on the net on how to do it

As mentioned above, if you have a wireless remote on the winch I would check for any amp draw. Another option would be to put a trickle charger on the machine....not necessarily a bad idea regardless of the possible winch draw if it's going to sit for weeks at a time.
