Went to turkey hunt this am..got to blind was setting out decoy and wheelchair didn't work OMG!!!
Called Gail (wife) (luckily switched to Verison and had signal...(exactly why I didn't want that at&t %^0* when altell went to at&t....%^0* coverage here.....why I switched)

Long story short...got wheelchair to wheelchair fixer place...he said probably wire connections
(guess invacare has problems with connections of motors to main harness)

Anyways I left a right and left motor in case one is bad (bought spares on ebay as they are kinda hard to find and new ones are big bucks...like $800 and then wait a long time)

Told him to check batteries as they are 3 yrs old...he will put in new ( he siad like $225 each x 2 :eek:) if they aren't up to snuff!


Anyways it sucks when the most important thing in my life quits...but it's to be fixed maybe by this afternoon....hope so I got hunting to do!!!!!!!

I have checked and the wheelchair batteries all are high priced and if ya buy cheaper chit ya get cheap chit...the batts in my house chair (cheap chit) only lasted a year...these in ATW are 3 yrs old so maybe it's time??
the wheelchair batts are gel filled also.(so as not to spill/corode)...and kinda deep cycle as well...another reason they are higher..being in a wheelchair is definately not cheap!!..100% of what's needed is high priced!!!..but hey gotta keep hunting
