What do I need to do to keep my powerchair running smoothly?
Follow these maintenance tips to get the best performance out of your equipment for a long period of time:
- Keep your equipment sanitized as dirt and other debris can create friction or other problems with important parts of the equipment.
- Make sure the batteries are holding a charge for the expected amount of time. When it is time to charge your equipment, you should charge your batteries for 8-12 hours. If you notice that the batteries are not holding their charge for the expected amount of time, you may have a loose connection or it may be time to have them replaced.
- Make sure to turn off your equipment before you transfer into or out of it.
What is the best way to store my equipment? Can I store it outside or in a covered area?
Do not store your equipment outside or anywhere that exposes your equipment to the elements. Your equipment needs to be stored in a warm dry place between 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
When storing your equipment for more than one month:
- You should charge your batteries for 8-12 hours. Please see your owner’s manual for further instruction.
- Remove the batteries from your equipment and store them in a warm dry place between 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
- To prevent the wheels from flattening or deteriorating, keep the unit off of the direct ground, by propping the equipment up on anything that will hold the weight.
