SAFETY

Perform the following inspections prior to using your scooter: ! Check for proper tire inflation (if equipped with pneumatic tires). ! Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded. ! Check all harness connections. Make sure they are secured properly. ! Check the brakes. ! Check battery charge. If you discover a problem, contact your authorized Pride Provider for assistance. TIRE INFLATION If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least once a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth operation of your scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic tires at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure in pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure. WARNING! Inflate your scooter tires from a regulated air source with an available pressure gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting in a burst tire. WARNING! When changing a tire, remove only the center lug nut, then remove the wheel. If any further disassembly is required, deflate the tire completely or it may explode.

When climbing an incline, try to keep your scooter moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly, and then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment dial to the slowest setting and driving in the forward direction only. If your scooter starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the throttle control lever. Then push the throttle control lever forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the incline. Drive your scooter straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline. WARNING! Do not drive your scooter across the side of an incline or diagonally up or down an incline; do not stop, if possible, while driving up or down an incline. WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas covered with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves). WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the scooter in freewheel mode while seated on it or standing next to it. WARNING! Even though your scooter is capable of climbing slopes greater than those illustrated in figures 1 and 1A, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline guidelines or any other specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could cause instability in your scooter.

Handicap public access ramps are not subject to government regulation in all countries, and therefore do not necessarily share the same standard percent of slope. Other inclines may be natural or, if man-made, not designed specifically for scooters. Figures 1 and 1A illustrate your scooter’s stability and its ability to climb grades under various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions. These tests were conducted with the scooter’s seat in the highest position and adjusted rearward on the seat base to its farthest rearward position. Use this information as a guideline. Your scooter’s ability to travel up inclines is affected by your weight, your scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your scooter setup.

WEIGHT LIMITATIONS Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Refer to the specifications table for information.
MANDATORY! Stay within the specified weight capacity of your scooter. Exceeding the weight capacity voids the warranty. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations. WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your scooter. Carrying passengers on your scooter may affect the center of gravity, resulting in a tip or a fall.

INCLINE INFORMATION More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access. Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on your scooter. ! Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline. ! Take wide swings with your scooter around any tight corners. If you do that, the scooter’s rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any railing corners. ! When driving down a ramp, keep the scooter’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to ensure a safely controlled descent. ! Avoid sudden stops and starts.

SAFETY

When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 2A. This shifts the center of gravity of you and your scooter toward the front of the scooter for improved stability. NOTE: When negotiating ramps, if the throttle control lever is released while moving forward, the powered scooter may "rollback" approximately 1 foot before the brake engages. If the throttle control lever is released while moving in reverse, the powered scooter may "rollback" approximately 3 feet before the brake engages.

OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES Your scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, Pride recognizes that there will be times when you will encounter other surface types. For this reason, your scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass, and gravel. Feel free to use your scooter safely on lawns and in park areas. ! Reduce your scooter’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces. ! Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear. ! Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand. ! If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface. PUBLIC STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! You should not operate your scooter on public streets and roadways. Be aware that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your scooter. Obey all local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and then proceed with extreme caution.

STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, CURBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges and/or drop-offs (curbs, porches, stairs, etc.). Figure 2. Normal Driving Position Figure 2A. Increased Stability Driving Position WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter climb or descend an obstacle that is inordinately high. WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter proceed backward down any step, curb, or other obstacle. This may cause the scooter to tip. WARNING! Be sure your scooter is traveling perpendicular to any curb you may be required to ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A. WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a curb that has a height greater than 2 in.

CORNERING INFORMATION Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility of tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt directional changes. High cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your scooter from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed and maintain a stable center of gravity. When using your scooter at higher speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. Always exercise common sense when cornering.

BRAKING INFORMATION Your scooter is equipped with these powerful brake systems: ! Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control lever returns to the centre/ stop position. ! Disc Park Brake: Activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or when power is removed from the system for any reason.

INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS Exposure of your scooter to inclement weather conditions should be avoided whenever possible. If suddenly caught up in rain, snow, severe cold or heat while operating your scooter, proceed to shelter at the earliest opportunity. Thoroughly dry your scooter before storing, charging, or operating your scooter.
PROHIBITED! Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions and on icy/slippery surfaces may have an adverse affect on the electrical system. Maintain and store your scooter in a dry and clean condition. WARNING! Prolonged exposure to hot or cold conditions may affect the temperature of upholstered and non-upholstered items on the scooter, possibly resulting in skin irritation. Exercise caution when using your scooter in extremely hot or cold conditions or when exposing your scooter to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.

ELEVATORS Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the door(s). ! If you are in the doorway of an elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or allow the rubber door edge to contact the scooter and the door will reopen. ! Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or scooter accessories do not become caught in elevator doors. NOTE: If your scooter’s turning radius is greater than 60 in., it may be difficult to maneuver in elevators and building entrances. Use caution when attempting to turn or maneuver your scooter in small spaces, and avoid areas that might pose a problem. LIFT/ELEVATION PRODUCTS If you will be traveling with your scooter, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation product to aid in transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications, and safety information set forth by the manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.
WARNING! Never sit on your scooter when it is being used in connection with any type of lift/elevation product. Your scooter was not designed with such use in mind and any damage or injury incurred from such use is not the responsibility of Pride.

FREEWHEEL MODE Your scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel lever that, when pulled up, allows the scooter to be pushed. For more information about how to place your scooter into and out of freewheel mode, see V. “Your Scooter.”
WARNING! When your scooter is in freewheel mode, the braking system is disengaged. ! Disengage the drive motors only on a level surface. ! Ensure the key is removed from the key switch. ! Stand beside the scooter to engage or disengage freewheel mode. Never sit on a scooter to do this. ! After you have finished pushing your scooter, always return it to the drive mode to lock the brakes.

BATTERIES In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information.
MANDATORY! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and wash hands after handling. WARNING! Scooter batteries are heavy. See specifications table. If you are unable to lift that much weight, be sure to get help. Use proper lifting techniques and avoid lifting beyond your capacity. WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen battery. WARNING! Connect the battery harnesses in the proper manner. RED (+) cables must be connected to positive (+) battery terminals/posts. BLACK (-) cables must be connected to negative (-) battery terminals/posts. REPLACE cables immediately if damaged. Protective caps must be installed over all battery terminals.

An added feature built into the scooter is “push-too-fast” protection which safeguards the scooter against gaining excessive speed while in freewheel mode. “Push-too-fast” operates differently depending on which of two conditions exists: ! If the key is switched “off” while in freewheel mode, the scooter’s controller activates regenerative braking when the scooter is pushed faster than a maximum threshold which has been preprogrammed. In this case, the controller is acting as a speed governor. ! If the key is switched “on” while in freewheel mode, you will encounter considerable resistance at any speed. This prevents the scooter from gaining unwanted momentum should the manual freewheel lever inadvertently be released while driving the scooter. STAIRS AND ESCALATORS Scooters are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Do not use your scooter to negotiate steps or escalators.

NOTE: If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it in a plastic bag and call your authorized Pride Provider for instructions on disposal. Your authorized Pride Provider will also have the necessary information on battery recycling, which is our recommended course of action.

DOORS ! Determine if the door opens toward or away from you. ! Use your hand to turn the knob or push the handle or push-bar. ! Drive your scooter gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your scooter gently and slowly backwards to pull the door open.

Batteries should be secured in an upright position, and protective caps should be installed on the battery terminals. Batteries should not be transported with any flammable or combustible items.

REACHING AND BENDING Avoid reaching or bending while driving your scooter. Bending forward creates the risk of accidental throttle control lever contact. Bending to the side while seated creates the risk of tipping. It is important to maintain a stable center of gravity and keep the scooter from tipping. Pride recommends that the scooter user determine his/her personal limitations and practice bending and reaching in the presence of a qualified attendant.
WARNING! Do not bend, lean, or reach for objects if you have to pick them up from the scooter deck or from either side of the scooter. Movements such as these may change your center of gravity and the weight distribution of the scooter and cause your scooter to tip. PROHIBITED! Keep your hands away from the tires when driving. Be aware that loose fitting clothing can become caught in drive tires.

POSITIONING BELTS Although your scooter may be equipped with a positioning belt, this belt is not designed to provide proper restraint during motor vehicle transport. Anyone traveling in a motor vehicle should be properly secured in the motor vehicle seat with safety belts fastened securely.
WARNING! Do not sit on your scooter while it is in a moving vehicle. WARNING! Ensure your scooter and its batteries are properly secured when being transported.

POSITIONING BELTS Your authorized Pride Provider, therapist(s), and other healthcare professionals are responsible for determining your requirement for a positioning belt in order to operate your scooter safely.
WARNING! If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your scooter, make sure it is fastened securely. Serious personal injury may result if you fall from the scooter.

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS/PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS The scooter user must exercise care and common sense when operating his/her scooter. This includes awareness of safety issues when taking prescribed or over-the-counter drugs or when the user has specific physical limitations.
WARNING! Consult your physician if you are taking prescribed or over-the-counter medication or if you have certain physical limitations. Some medications and limitations may impair your ability to operate your scooter in a safe manner.

PREVENTING UNINTENDED MOVEMENT
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period of time, turn off the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent throttle control lever contact.

ALCOHOL/SMOKING The scooter user must exercise care and common sense when operating his/her scooter. This includes awareness of safety issues while under the influence of alcohol, or while smoking.
WARNING! Do not operate your scooter while you are under the influence of alcohol, as this may impair your ability to operate the scooter in a safe manner. WARNING! Pride strongly recommends that you do not smoke cigarettes while seated on your scooter, although the scooter seat has passed the necessary testing requirements for cigarette smoking. You must adhere to the following safety guidelines if you decide to smoke cigarettes while seated on your scooter. ! Do not leave lit cigarettes unattended. ! Keep ashtrays a safe distance from the seat cushions. ! Always make sure cigarettes are completely extinguished before disposal.

GETTING ONTO AND OFF OF YOUR SCOOTER Getting onto and off of your scooter requires a good sense of balance. Please observe the following safety tips when getting onto and off of your scooter: ! Remove the key from the key switch. ! Ensure that your scooter is not in freewheel mode. See V. “Your Scooter.” ! Ensure that the seat is secured into place. ! Pivot the armrests up to make getting onto and off of the scooter easier.
WARNING! Position yourself as far back as possible in the scooter seat to prevent the scooter from tipping. WARNING!

Your scooter requires two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. They are recharged by an on-board charging system. ! Charge your scooter’s batteries prior to using it for the first time. ! Keep the batteries fully charged to keep your scooter running smoothly. READING YOUR BATTERY VOLTAGE The battery condition meter on the tiller console indicates the approximate strength of your batteries using a color code. From right to left, green indicates fully charged batteries, yellow a draining charge, and red indicates that an immediate recharge is necessary. See figure 7. To ensure the highest accuracy, the battery condition meter should be checked while operating your scooter at full speed on a dry, level surface. You can also check the charging status of the batteries by the ammeter, located at the rear of the scooter. The charger power cord must be plugged into a standard electrical outlet in order to obtain a reading. When the amperage reading is at or near zero amps, charging is complete. See figure 8.

PROHIBITED! Do not allow unsupervised children to play near the scooter while the batteries are charging. Pride recommends that you do not charge the batteries while the scooter is occupied. WARNING! If your battery charger has not been tested and approved for outdoor use, then do not expose it to adverse or extreme weather conditions. If the battery charger is exposed to adverse or extreme weather conditions, then it must be allowed to adjust to the difference in environmental conditions before use indoors. Refer to the manual supplied with the battery charger for more information.

V I . BAT T E R I E S A N D C H A R G I N G
How often must I charge the batteries? Two major factors must be considered when deciding how often to charge your scooter’s batteries: ! All day scooter use on a daily basis. ! Infrequent or sporadic scooter use. With these considerations in mind, you can determine how often and for how long you should charge your scooter’s batteries. We designed the onboard charger so that it will not overcharge your scooter’s batteries. However, you may encounter some problems if you do not charge your batteries often enough and if you do not charge them on a regular basis. Following the guidelines below will provide safe and reliable battery operation and charging. ! If you use your scooter daily, charge its batteries as soon as you finish using it for the day. Your scooter will be ready each morning . We recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries for 8 to 14 hours after daily use. ! If you use your scooter once a week or less, charge its batteries at least once a week for 12 to 14 hours at a time. ! Keep your scooter’s batteries fully charged. ! Avoid deeply discharging your scooter’s batteries. How can I ensure maximum battery life? Fully charged deep-cycle batteries provide reliable performance and extended battery life. Keep your scooter’s batteries fully charged whenever possible. Protect your scooter and batteries from extreme heat or cold. Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, stored in extreme temperatures, or stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and limited service life. How can I get maximum range or distance per charge? Rarely will you have ideal driving conditions—smooth, flat, hard driving surfaces with no wind or curves. Often, you will face hills, pavement cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves, and wind, all of which affect the distance or running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining the maximum range per battery charge. ! Always fully charge your scooter’s batteries prior to daily use. ! Maintain 30-35 psi in each tire. ! Plan your route ahead to avoid as many hills, cracked, broken, or soft surfaces as possible. ! Limit your baggage weight to essential items. ! Try to maintain an even speed while your scooter is in motion. ! Avoid stop-and-go driving. What type and size of battery should I use? We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both AGM and Gel-Cell are deepcycle batteries that are similar in performance. Do not use wet-cell batteries, which have removable caps.
WARNING! Corrosive chemicals are contained in batteries. Use only AGM or Gel-Cell batteries to reduce the risk of leakage or explosive conditions.

Follow these easy steps to charge your batteries safely: 1. Position your scooter close to a standard electrical outlet. 2. Remove the key from the key switch. 3. Make certain that the manual freewheel lever is in the drive (down) position. 4. Plug the charger power cord into the charger power cord receptacle. 5. Extend the charger power cord and plug it into the electrical outlet. It is recommended that you charge your batteries for 8 to 14 hours. 6. When the batteries are fully charged, unplug the charger power cord from the electrical outlet and then from the charger power cord receptacle. NOTE: There is a charger inhibit function on your scooter. The scooter will not run and the battery condition meter will not operate while the batteries are charging. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS How does the charger work? When your scooter’s battery voltage is low, the charger works harder, sending more electrical current to the batteries to bring up their charge. As the batteries approach a full charge, the charger sends less and less electrical current. When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent from the charger is at nearly zero amperage. Therefore, when the charger is plugged in, it maintains the charge on your scooter’s batteries, but does not overcharge them. We do not recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours. What if my scooter’s batteries won’t charge? ! Ensure the red (+) and black (-) battery cables are connected properly to the battery terminals. ! Ensure both battery harnesses, extending from the batteries, are plugged into their mating harness leading to the charger. ! Ensure both ends of the charger power cord are inserted fully. Can I use a different charger? Chargers are selected precisely for particular applications and are especially matched to the type, size, and chemical formulation of specific batteries. For the safest and most efficient charging of your scooter’s batteries, we recommend use of the charger supplied as original equipment with your Pride product only. Any charging method resulting in batteries being charged individually is especially prohibited.

NOTE: Sealed batteries are not serviceable. Do not remove the caps.

How do I change a battery?
WARNING! Contact your authourized Pride Provider if you have any questions regarding the batteries in your scooter. WARNING! Do not replace the batteries while the scooter is occupied. WARNING! The batteries on your scooter should only be servcied or replaced by an authorized Pride Provider or a qualified technician. MANDATORY! Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and wash hands after handling. WARNING! Always use two batteries of the exact same type, chemistry and amp-hour (Ah) capacity. Refer to the specifications table in this manual and in the manual supplied with the battery charger for recommended type and capacities.

V I . BAT T E R I E S A N D C H A R G I N G
It may take a few days for the temperature of your scooter’s batteries to stabilize and adjust to their new room or ambient temperature. More importantly, it takes a few charging cycles (partial draining followed by full recharging) to establish the critical chemical balance that is essential to a deep-cycle battery’s peak performance and long life. Follow these steps to properly break in your scooter’s new batteries for maximum efficiency and service life. 1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This charging cycle brings the battery up to about 88% of its peak performance level. 2. Operate your new scooter in familiar and safe areas. Drive slowly at first, and do not travel too far from your home or familiar surroundings until you have become accustomed to your scooter’s controls and have properly broken in your scooter’s batteries. 3. Fully recharge the batteries. They should be at over 90% of their peak performance level. 4. Operate your scooter again. 5. Fully recharge the batteries again. 6. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries are able to receive a charge of 100% of their peak performance level and are able to last for an extended period of time. What about public transportation? If you intend to use public transportation with your scooter, you must contact the transportation provider in advance to determine their specific requirements.

1. Remove the seat and the rear shroud. See IX. “Disassembly and Assembly.” 2. Disconnect the battery strap. 3. Disconnect the 2 pin, black and white battery harness from its mating plug. See figure 15 in IX. “Assembly and Disassembly.” 4. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery terminals. 5. Remove the old batteries. 6. Place a the new batteries into the battery wells. 7. Connect the red battery cable to the positive (+) battery terminal for each battery. 8. Connect the black battery cable to the negative (-) battery terminal for each battery. 9. Reconnect the 2 pin, black and white battery harness to its mating plugs. 10. Reconnect the battery strap. 11. Reinstall the rear shroud and seat.

NOTE: If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it in a plastic bag and call your authorized Pride Provider for instructions on disposal. Your authorized Pride Provider will also have the necessary information on battery recycling, which is our recommended course of action. Why do my new batteries seem weak? Deep-cycle batteries employ a different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries (nicads), and other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power, drain down their charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge. We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide batteries that best suit your scooter’s specific electrical demands. Fresh batteries are shipped fully charged to our customers. During shipping, the batteries may encounter temperature extremes that can influence their initial performance. Heat diminishes the charge on the battery; cold slows the available power and extends the time needed to recharge the battery.

CARE

AND

MAINTENANCE

Your scooter requires a minimal amount of care and maintenance. If you do not feel confident in your ability to perform the maintenance listed below, you may schedule inspection and maintenance at your authorized Pride Provider. The following areas require periodic inspection and/or care and maintenance. TIRE PRESSURE ! If equipped with pneumatic tires, always maintain a proper 30-35 psi tire pressure.
WARNING! It is important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic tires at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure in pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure.

WIRING HARNESSES ! Regularly check all wiring connections. ! Regularly check all wiring insulation, including the charger power cord, for wear or damage. ! Have your authorized Pride Provider repair or replace any damaged connector, connection, or insulation that you find before using your scooter again.
WARNING! Even though the scooter has passed the necessary testing requirements for ingress of liquids, you should keep electrical connections away from sources of dampness, including direct exposure to water or bodily fluids and incontinence. Check electrical components frequently for signs of corrosion and replace as necessary.

! Regularly inspect your scooter’s tires for signs of wear. WHEEL REPLACEMENT If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires and you have a flat tire, you can have the tube replaced. If your scooter is equipped with a solid tire insert, either the solid insert or the entire wheel must be replaced depending on model. Contact your authorized Pride Provider for information regarding replacement wheels for your scooter.
WARNING! Wheels on your scooter should only be serviced/replaced by an authorized Pride Provider or qualified technician. WARNING! Completely deflate pneumatic tires before dismantling the rim or attempting repair. WARNING! When changing a tire, remove only the center lug nut, then remove the wheel. If any further disassembly is required, deflate the tire completely or it may explode.

ABS PLASTIC SHROUDS ! The front tiller shroud, front shroud, and the rear shroud are formed from durable ABS plastic and are coated with an advanced formula urethane paint. ! A light application of car wax will help the shrouds retain their high gloss. AXLE BEARINGS AND THE MOTOR/TRANSAXLE ASSEMBLY These items are all prelubricated, sealed, and require no subsequent lubrication. MOTOR BRUSHES The motor brushes are housed inside of the motor transaxle/assembly. They should be inspected periodically for wear by your authorized Pride Provider. CONSOLE, CHARGER, AND REAR ELECTRONICS ! Keep these areas free of moisture. ! Allow these areas to dry thoroughly if they have been exposed to moisture before charging the batteries and operating your scooter again. FUSE REPLACEMENT
WARNING! The replacement fuse must exactly match the rating of the old fuse. Failure to use properly rated fuses may cause damage to the electrical system.

EXTERIOR SURFACES Bumpers, tires, trim, and the tiller boot can benefit from an occasional application of a rubber or vinyl conditioner.
WARNING! Do not use a rubber or vinyl conditioner on the scooter’s vinyl seat or tire tread, as they will become dangerously slippery.

CLEANING AND DISINFECTION ! Use a damp cloth and mild, non-abrasive cleanser to clean the plastic and metal parts of your scooter. Avoid using products that may scratch the surface of your scooter. ! If necessary, clean your product with an approved disinfectant. Make sure the disinfectant is safe for use on your product before application.
WARNING! Follow all safety instructions for the proper use of the disinfectant and/or cleaning agent before applying it to your product. Failure to comply may result in skin irritation or premature deterioration of upholstery and/or scooter finishes.

In the event a fuse should cease to work: 1. Remove the fuse by pulling it out of its slot. 2. Examine the fuse to be sure it is blown. See figures 25 and 25A. 3. Insert a new fuse of the proper rating.

BATTERY TERMINAL CONNECTIONS ! Make certain that the terminal connections remain tight and uncorroded. ! The batteries must sit flat in the battery wells. ! The battery terminals should face the rear of the scooter.

STORING YOUR SCOOTER If you plan on not using your scooter for an extended period of time, it is best to: 1. Fully charge its batteries prior to storage. 2. Disconnect the batteries from the scooter. 3. Store your scooter in a warm, dry environment. 4. Avoid storing your scooter where it will be exposed to temperature extremes.
WARNING! Always protect batteries from freezing temperatures and never charge a frozen battery. Charging a frozen battery may reselt in damage to the battery.

Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, stored in extreme temperatures, or stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and limited service life. It is recommended that you charge the scooter batteries periodically throughout periods of prolonged storage to ensure proper performance. You may wish to place several boards under the frame of your scooter to raise it off of the ground during periods of prolonged storage. This takes the weight off the tires and reduces the possibility of flat spots developing on the areas of the tires contacting the ground. DISPOSAL OF YOUR SCOOTER Your scooter must be disposed of according to applicable local and national statutory regulations. Contact your local waste disposal agency or authorized Pride Provider for information on proper disposal of packaging, metal frame components, plastic components, electronics, and batteries.

Explain each event in at least 150 words. Event | What Happened? | Cubagua’s Pearl-Oyster Beds: TheFirst Depletion of a NaturalResource Caused by Europeans inthe American Continent | Archeological evidence suggests that the first humans never settled permanentlyin Cubagua, but only visited the islands with the purpose to exploit the rich oyster bedsboth for food as well as pearls for ornamentation. The lack of fresh water and significantvegetation made permanent settlement difficult. To this day, only a few fishers temporarily settle on the island.Dating back to 1498 the area of Cubagua has been heavily used for the rich oyster beds due to Spain wanting more and more riches.The richest areas were east to Cubagua and Coche, east and southeast of Margarita, and northwest of the Araya peninsula. This section of the coastline was soon to become known as the Pearls’ Coast (“Costa de las Perlas”).By 1531 the depletion was becoming more evident; Spain began to limit the number of boats and divers as well as the number of hours to only four per day. They also restricted the depth to which they could dive. These quotas were not of much help as the rules only applied to certain......

Historical Events for the Year 1954

...Historical Events For Year 1954 On May 4th, the Phillies and Cardinals set a Major League record (later broken) by using a staggering forty-two combined players during an eleven-inning, 14-10 Philly victory. Philadelphia used seven pitchers throughout the effort and the St. Louis topped them with eight men on the mound. "The Yankee Clipper" Joe DiMaggio married Hollywood starlet Marilyn Monroe in San Francisco. Nine months later the two were divorced, but continued to maintain an on-again, off-again relationship. DiMaggio had reportedly told friends that the two were going to be re-married shortly before her death from a drug overdose eight years later. In the years that followed, he rarely spoke of her and had roses delivered to her gravesite twice a week for the next two decades. He never married again. Mickey Vernon of the Washington Senators tallied his 2,000th career hit on September 2nd. He also notched his nineteenth home run of the season for a franchise record for left-handers. The Boston Red Sox managed to pull off a rare triple play, but still lost to the Baltimore Orioles during a seventeen-inning game that set a new American League record for time consumed at four hours and fifty-eight minutes, and tied the Major League mark (set seven weeks earlier) for the most players used in a single game (forty-two).

Historical Event

...History essay A history event that changed or had and effect on the world today would be the year 1968 can be recognized by the mass-youth appeal in late twentieth-century political and intellectual culture. It's most frequently remembered for the assassination of Martin Luther King, the May uprisings by students and workers in France, the assassination of Robert Kennedy, the riots in Chicago during the Democratic National Convention, the massacre of government protesters in Mexico City during the weeks leading up to the Olympics, and the election of Richard Nixon--to name just a few of the more infamous events. It was a year marked by the beginning of America's decline as the single dominant economic power to emerge at the end of World War II. Many social changes that were addressed in the 1960s are still the issues being confronted today. The ‘60s was a decade of social and political upheaval. In spite of all the turmoil, there were some positive results: the civil rights revolution, John F. Kennedy’s bold vision of a new frontier, and the breathtaking advances in space helped bring about progress and prosperity. However, much was negative: student and anti-war protest movements, political assassinations, and ghetto riots excited American people and resulted in lack of respect for authority and the law. Edward Sanders' book-long poem entitled 1968: A History in Verse depicts all areas of the year 1968 from January 1st through the end of December. Sanders avoids......

Historical Events That Changed the World

...Historical Events that Changed the World Between World War I and World War II America went through events in the political, economical and social areas that would change the face of the nation forever. The various eras- World War I, the Roaring Twenties, The Great Depression & the New Deal, and World War II each had separate issues that caused changes in relation to class, gender, domestic and international affairs. Although many of these events were only effective temporarily, others still show a strong influence today. Movements such as woman suffrage, events such as dropping the atomic bomb, and social eras such as The Harlem Renaissance still play an important role in the lives of Americans today. World War I laid the foundations for the political and economical crisis that was soon to follow. Even before the end of the war, Allies claimed reparations from Germany, whose economy was destroyed. Wilson, after meeting with the Big Four, slowly began to accept the idea of reparations. Once implemented, the American banks were now beginning to profit greatly from loaning to both Germany and the Allies- Germany who had to pay their reparations and fix the infrastructure of the country, France whose infrastructure was destroyed and Great Britain, who had to pay back America for all the ammo and weapons they had bought. Germany entered a never-ending debt cycle- repaying the allies by taking out loans, then repaying the loans by taking out even more loans. Germany’s dey...

9/11 Historical Event

...to raise fear levels. This meant that governments, corporations and individuals had to change their lifestyle and how they behaved. Many precautionary policies were put into place in the case another terrorist attack occurs. People’s eyes were now open to the fact that terrorism can occur to any country at any time. However, the center stage of the attacks was the economy. Other countries across the globe were also set up to feel the ripples of the attack in terms of a shrinking economy. “The 9/11 terrorist attacks affected the world economy at different levels depending on how the attacks are viewed.” (Nanto, 2004) However, to better understand the impact the attacks had on the global front, it is vital to keep in mind the historical and contemporary causes. The UK’s Prospect Magazines published that analysis and commentators highlight poverty in the Middle East as a possible factor in the attacks. “Some political leaders even argued that the Doha round of trade talks, launched soon after 9/11, was intended partly to quash terrorism.” (Bergen, 2006) As well, the magazine goes on to name Madrassas and the teaching of Jihadist as being part of the fuel that encouraged the attacks. However, it goes on to show that this was a simplistic view since there is little record of Madrassa graduates carrying out an anti-western attack. Another explanation against this argument is that most of the attackers were actually college graduates who actually never attended......

...reorganization and busing to create integrated schools dominated the 1960s and 1970s. Programs like project Head Start were created to help the lower-class youngster compete in middle class schools. Some critics felt that integration and equality efforts diverted efforts from the drive toward excellence. The lack of literary and humanistic emphasis in school programs concerned others. Public support for education was declining by 1980” (Pulliam pg, 228). During the1960s schools serve students and teach them survival skills, and schools serve the community as a whole. A school system is the central institution of a rural community. The school is often the largest employer, it claims the largest share of local taxes and may be the only place where events are held that are community wide and open to the public. Teaching methods in the common schools reflected the traditional Idealist epistemology of Western education. With little pedagogical training or access to new teaching methods, most teachers taught as they had been taught, handing down the established truths in established ways. For common school teachers, this usually meant having students memorize facts, dates, and literary passages and recite them in the classroom. Teachers explained concepts primarily through lecture, and there was relatively little student-student interaction. The teacher was the sole authority on all content and student behavior, although it seems somewhat paradoxical to teach democratic values in......

...One historical event that has to do with human services that I have always found to be of importance was the need for welfare. In the past it has been very controversial, as to whether it was really helping people or simply giving them a free pass to be lazy and unmotivated to support them. Martin states, “The general public’s perception of social welfare programs seems to be based in large part on this negative bias against the poor, and the misguided belief that the poor are lazy, immoral, and dependent” (Martin, 2014, p. 35-36). Just like anything else in life, there will always be good and bad. No matter what we try to do in life by helping others, there will always be positive and negative consequences. There is always going to be those people who are more lazy and unmotivated than others. That doesn’t mean we should punish everyone by not helping to give those in need a second chance in life that want it. Nothing in life is perfect, except of course, Jesus. I believe that welfare programs that have been going on in the past were a great improvement towards helping others gain a better life for their families. With any movement that had happened in the past or any change that has happened, there will always be different sides of looking at them and everyone will have their different opinions. I don’t think it’s perfect, but I do believe there were people who took advantage of the system and became dependent on welfare by living of off free money, which in turn,...

Nursing Timeline of Historical Events

...The knowledge of the foundations and history of nursing has provided great enhancement in the role of a nurse. I read the “Nursing History Timeline” and found out how much Florence Nightingale, Walter Whitman, Dorthea Dix and Harriet Dame made an enormous impact on the nursing practice. I wish everyone who chooses nursing as a career embraces their patient advocacy and compassion for others. The first trend in the “Nursing Timeline of Historical Events” was the quality of care. In the beginning of nursing prior to the 1800’s very little attention was given to the quality of care provided to patients. Most of the nursing care was provided by men of religious orders and currently the nursing profession is employed by women. Today we strive to provide the best quality of care to our patients as a whole. I feel it’s not the quantity of care given it’s the quality that makes the patients feel they have been given the best care possible. The second trend is “Modern Nursing” early on in the Crimean War a nursing job was considered “undesirable”. “A nursing job was given to the immoral, the alcoholic and the illiterate”. These days a registered nurse is one of the most desired jobs for men and women. I feel very honored to be a nurse and very lucky to have a college degree. Society has made nursing a reputable and educated career choice and highly desirable. The third trend is technology and how it has tremendously evolved and become so complex.

...important incidents in the Philippines that shaped the course of its history. These are events - both good and bad - that are equally important in nurturing and strengthening the solid foundation and sense of nationalism among the Filipinos. Prior to the Spanish colonization, the Philippines already enjoyed a rich culture and tradition, still evident among the indigenous peoples living up in the mountains or along the coast. For more than 300 years, the country was under the strong grip of the Spaniards – who abused and caused the death of many Filipinos. They introduced many colonial impositions, particularly regarding economy, such as polo y servicio, tobacco monopoly, tributary system, cedula personal, cash-crop economy and so on. However, despite all this, the Spaniards have also contributed so much in Philippine culture, language, education, architecture, Filipino mind sets and most importantly, the introduction of Christianity in the islands. By the 1900s, the Philippines became the only Southeast Asian country to be occupied, if not totally colonized, by the United States. They came to “civilize” us, justified by the so-called “Benevolent Assimilation” - educating the Filipinos, introducing to them what a civilization is like, and when all things are done, leaving them strong enough to rule their own country. However, their stay in the Philippines was marked by many tortures and bloody events, yet, they introduced a better system of education in the Philippines......

...Historical Timeline on Human Sexuality Sarah Rapai Baker College of Jackson Historical Timeline on Human Sexuality 1801-1887, Gustav Fechner On October 22, 1850 Fechner had an insight that the law of the connection between the mind and the body can be found in a statement of quantitative relation between mental sensation and material stimulus. From his insight he invented psychophysics, which is a useful study of the relationship between stimulus intensity and subjective experience of the stimulus (Wozniak, 2015). 1809-1882, Charles Darwin Darwin was a naturalist whose theory of natural selection influenced the functionalist school and the field of evolutionary psychology. He worked on his theory for 20 years. After learning that another naturalist, Alfred Wallace had developed similar ideas the two announced their discovery in 1858. In 1859 Darwin published ‘On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection’ (Charles Darwin, 2015). 1842-1910, William James James was a psychologist who opened one of the fist psychology laboratories and helped develop the field of structuralism. Until 1875 there were no professors of psychology in American universities before James began teaching the subject. In 1883 he began to develop a view and practice of psychology and its clinical procedures (Marvin, 1995). 1849- 1936, Ivan Pavlov Pavlov was a psychologist whose experiments on learning led to the principle of classical conditioning.

Historical Events in Addiction

...Historical Events Affecting Addictions One big event that affected addictions treatment is the Vietnam War. In 1970, half of enlisted soldiers had experience with illicit drugs but only 30% of those had tried anything aside from marijuana. Barbituates and Amphetamines were the most commonly tried drugs. Only 11% had tried Opiates and cough syrup containing codeine was the most common Opiate that had been tried. The soldiers in Vietnam were either drafted by lottery or had enlisted voluntarily. Forty percent of those who had enlisted voluntarily were school dropouts who had limited job opportunities and considerably more drug experience. Heroin and opium was widely available, relatively cheap, and so pure that it could be smoked rather than injected for those who were reluctant to inject it. By 1971, half of soldiers had tried heroin and half had used enough to develop an addiction. In the spring of 1971 it was discovered that 15% of United State servicemen were returning from service already addicted to heroin. The Armed Forces was coping with the staggering numbers with military discipline and amnesty. Those who were found to be using or possessing drugs were court martialed and given a dishonorable discharge. Users that voluntarily sought help may be offered amnesty and brief treatment. This did not make much of a difference and usage increased dramatically over the next year and a half. While the US was trying to negotiate a settlement of the war,......

Mid nineteenth century America was marked by a period of social reforms.   The northern economy began to turn toward industrialization and the southern economy still grew cotton as a major cash crop and the boundaries were expanding more westward.   During this time people began to question some the ways their society had accepted.   Many wanted to change their political views or change certain things due to their religion.   Many people blamed alcohol for the way things were so they tried the temperance movement.   Education became an important issue to the colonies.   So they set up private schools, had high schools, provided more teachers for higher education.   Abolition of slavery was a huge topic among these times.   Many people, slave owners and non slave owner spoke against slavery.   This was a huge and active time for the Underground Railroad.   An underground route that helped free slave from captivity ran by an escaped slaved called Harriet Tubman. One of the most significant reforms was for women’s rights.   I feel this had the biggest effect of the times.   They fought for economic and social equality.   This became very significant because now women had the right to help make choices which is had a huge effect for today.
