Can't keep battery charged on CV15S

I have a Craftsman lawn tractor with a Kohler CV15S - PS-41567 engine. I can't keep the battery charged. I can put a charger on it, get is started, cut the grass and after a day or two, the battery is dead again. I'm thinking it's the alternator, but I can't find a part number to buy a replacement. Any ideas? Thanks.

How old is the battery? It may be too old to hold a charge. These batteries are only good for 2 years or so. That is why they are only warrantied for 1 season.
Alternator number 12 085 08-S.

Thanks for the info. The battery is over 2 years old. I'll start there and see if that makes a difference before trying to track down an alternator.
