SAFETY
GENERAL
MANDATORY! Do not operate your new scooter for the first time without completely reading
and understanding this owner’s manual.
Your scooter is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an
extensive variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the scooter user. Please be aware that the final
selection and purchasing decision regarding the type of scooter to be used is the responsibility of the scooter
user who is capable of making such a decision and his/her healthcare professional (i.e., medical doctor, physical
therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted the
scooter to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorised Pride Dealer in
the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the scooter user will need to practice
operating the scooter in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family member
or care professional specially trained in assisting a scooter user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your scooter during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which you will
need some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as you manoeuvre
through doorways, on and off lifts, up and down ramps and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips and other safety considerations that will help you become accustomed to operating the scooter safely.
MODIFICATIONS
Pride has designed and engineered your scooter to provide maximum mobility and utility. Some accessories are
available from Pride to further customise your scooter to better suit your needs and/or preferences. However,
under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove or disable any feature, part or function of your scooter.
WARNING! Do not modify your scooter in any way not authorised by Pride. Unauthorised
modifications may result in personal injury and/or damage to your scooter, and may void
your warranty.
PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your scooter and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check before
each use to make sure your scooter operates smoothly and safely.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your scooter:
! Check for proper tyre inflation (if equipped with pneumatic tyres).
! Check the brakes.
! Check battery charge.
If you discover a problem, contact your authorised Pride Dealer for assistance.
Destiny

SAFETY
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Refer to the specifications table for information.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty and may result in personal
injury and damage to your scooter. 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 may result in
personal injury and/or property damage.
TYRE INFLATION
If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tyres, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least
once a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tyres and help ensure the smooth operation
of your scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that 2-2.4 bar (30-35 psi) tyre pressure be maintained
in pneumatic tyres at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tyres. Low pressure
may result in loss of control and overinflated tyres may burst. Failure to maintain 2-2.4 bar
(30-35 psi) tyre pressure in pneumatic tyres at all times may result in tyre and/or wheel
failure, causing serious personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter tyres from a regulated air source with an available pressure
gauge. Inflating your tyres from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting
in a burst tyre and/or personal injury.
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.
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).

II.
SAFETY
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 that
illustrated in figure 1, 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, resulting in personal injury and/or damage to 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. Figure 1 illustrates 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.
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than what is shown in figure
1 may put your scooter in an unstable position and cause it to tip, resulting in personal
injury.

(300 lbs.)
10.5 % (6°)
Figure 1. Maximum Recommended Incline Angle (3- and 4-wheel)
When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 2A. This shifts the centre 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 roll back approximately 30.5 cm (1 foot) before the brake engages. If the throttle
control lever is released while moving in reverse, the powered scooter may roll back approximately 1
metre (3 feet) before the brake engages.

SAFETY
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. When using your scooter at higher
speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. To avoid
personal injury or property damage, 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.
OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces composed of concrete, blacktop or tarmac. However, Pride recognises 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 or wrapped around the axle.
! 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, KERBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges and/or drop-offs (kerbs,
porches, stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter climb or descend an obstacle that is
inordinately high. Serious personal injury and/or damage may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter proceed rearward down any step, kerb
or other obstacle. This may cause the scooter to tip and cause personal injury.

SAFETY
WARNING! Be sure your scooter is traveling perpendicular to any kerb you may be required
to ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A.
WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a kerb that has a height greater than 5 cm (2 in.).

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.
WARNING! Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions and on icy/slippery surfaces
can cause personal injury and/or damage to the scooter and electrical system. Maintain
and store your scooter in a dry and clean condition.
FREEWHEEL MODE
Your scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel lever that, when pushed forward, allows the scooter to be
pushed. For more information about how to place your scooter into and out of freewheel mode, see IV.
“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.
Failure to heed the above could result in personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
Destiny

II.
SAFETY
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 turned to the “off” position 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 in the “on” position while in freewheel mode, you will encounter considerable resistance at any
speed because the brakes are fully engaged. 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 a lift.
WARNING! Do not use your scooter to negotiate steps or escalators. You may cause injury
to yourself and to others and/or damage your scooter.
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
rearwards to pull the door open.
LIFTS
Modern lifts have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the door(s).
! If you are in the doorway of a lift 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 handbags, packages or scooter accessories do not become caught in lift doors.
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.
BATTERIES
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information.
WARNING! Scooter batteries are heavy (refer to specifications table). Lifting weight beyond
your capacity could result in personal injury. If necessary, get someone physically able to
lift the scooter batteries for you.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wash hands after handling.
12
www.pridemobility.com
Destiny
II.
SAFETY
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen battery.
Charging a frozen battery may result in personal injury and/or damage to the battery.
WARNING! RED (+) cables must be connected to positive (+) battery terminals/posts. BLACK
(-) cables must be connected to negative (-) battery terminals/posts. Failure to connect
your battery cables and harnesses in the proper manner may result in personal injury and/
or damage to your scooter. REPLACE cables immediately if damaged.
BATTERY DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING
If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it in a plastic bag and call your authorised
Pride Dealer for instructions on disposal. Your authorised Pride Dealer will also have the necessary information on
battery recycling, which is our recommended course of action.
MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT
Pride recommends that you do not remain seated in your scooter while traveling in a motor vehicle. The
scooter should be stowed in the boot of a car or in the back of a truck or van with the batteries removed and
properly secured.
WARNING! Do not sit on your scooter while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury and/or
property damage may result.
WARNING! Always be sure your scooter and its batteries are properly secured when it is
being transported. Failure to do so may result in personal injury and/or damage to your
scooter.
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. Failure to do so may result in personal injury.
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 IV. “Your Scooter.”
! Make certain that the seat is locked into place.
! Pivot the armrests up to make getting onto and off of the scooter easier.
WARNING! When driving on level ground, position yourself as far back as possible in the
scooter seat to prevent the scooter from tipping and causing injury.
WARNING! Prevent personal injury and product damage! Avoid putting all of your weight
on the scooter armrests and do not use the armrests for weight bearing purposes, such as
transfers. Such use may cause the scooter to tip, resulting in a fall from the scooter.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the floorboard. Such use may cause the
scooter to tip and cause personal injury.

II.
SAFETY
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
centre 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 centre of gravity and the weight distribution of the scooter and cause your scooter to
tip, possibly resulting in personal injury.
WARNING! Prevent personal injury! Keep your hands away from the tyres when driving. Be
aware that loose fitting clothing can become caught in drive tyres.
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.
ALCOHOL
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.
WARNING! Do not operate your scooter while you are under the influence of alcohol, as
this may impair your ability to drive safely.
REMOVABLE PARTS
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move your scooter by any of its removable parts,
including the armrests, seat and shroud. Personal injury and damage to the scooter may
result.
ELECTROMAGNETIC AND RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE (EMI/RFI)
WARNING! Laboratory tests have shown that electromagnetic and radio frequency waves
can have an adverse affect on the performance of electrically-powered mobility vehicles.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference can come from sources such as cellular phones, mobile twoway radios (such as walkie-talkies), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless
computer links, microwave signals, paging transmitters and medium-range mobile transceivers used by emergency
vehicles. In some cases, these waves can cause unintended movement or damage to the control system. Every
electrically-powered mobility vehicle has an immunity (or resistance) to EMI. The higher the immunity level, the
greater the protection against EMI. This product has been tested and has passed at an immunity level of 20 V/M.

SAFETY
WARNING! Be aware that cell phones, two-way radios, laptops and other types of radio
transmitters may cause unintended movement of your electrically-powered mobility vehicle
due to EMI. Exercise caution when using any of these items while operating your mobility
vehicle and avoid coming into close proximity of radio and TV stations.
WARNING! The addition of accessories or components to the electrically-powered mobility
vehicle can increase the susceptibility of the vehicle to EMI. Do not modify your scooter in
any way not authorised by Pride.
WARNING! The electrically-powered mobility vehicle itself can disturb the performance
of other electrical devices located nearby, such as alarm systems.

Batteries
The batteries store the electrical energy that powers your scooter. See V. “Batteries and Charging ” for information
on how to charge your scooter batteries.
Motor/Transaxle Assembly
The motor/transaxle assembly is an electromechanical unit that converts electrical energy from your scooter’s
batteries into the controlled mechanical energy that drives the scooter’s wheels.
Main Circuit Breaker (Reset Button)
When the voltage in your scooter’s batteries becomes low or the scooter is heavily strained because of excessive
loads or steep inclines, the main circuit breaker may trip to protect the motor and electronics from damage.

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 voltage approaches full charge, the charger sends less and less electrical
current to the batteries. When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent by 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 that both ends of the off-board charger power lead are inserted fully.
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. The off-board charger was designed 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 to give you a full day of service. 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.
! Do not charge your scooter’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
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.
! Fully charge your scooter’s batteries prior to use.
! Plan your route 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.
Destiny

V. B AT T E R I E S A N D C H A R G I N G
What type and size battery should I use?
Your scooter comes equipped with two deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both AGM
and Gel-Cell are deep-cycle 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.
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) or in 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 arrive daily and are shipped fully charged with the scooter. During shipping, the batteries
may encounter temperature extremes that may 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.
WARNING! If your scooter’s batteries become frozen, do not attempt to charge them. Cold
or frozen batteries should be allowed to warm up for several days prior to recharging.
It may take a few days for the temperature of your scooter’s batteries to stabilise and adjust to their new room or
ambient temperature. 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.
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.
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.
What about public transport?
If you intend to use public transport with your scooter, you must contact the transportation dealer in advance to
determine their specific requirements.

BASIC
TROUBLESHOOTING
Any electromechanical device requires occasional troubleshooting. However, most problems that arise can usually
be solved with a bit of thought and common sense. Many of these problems occur because the batteries are not
fully charged or because the batteries are worn down and can no longer hold a charge.
What if the motor runs but my scooter does not move?
! Your scooter was probably left in freewheel mode.
! When the manual freewheel lever is pushed down, the brakes are disengaged and all power to the motor/transaxle
is cut.
! Pull the manual freewheel lever upward to restore normal operation to your scooter.
What if the main circuit breaker trips repeatedly?
! Charge the scooter’s batteries more frequently. See V. “Batteries and Charging.”
! See V. “Batteries and Charging” or III. “Specifications” for information about your scooter’s battery type.
! If the main circuit breaker continues to trip repeatedly, contact your authorised Pride Dealer for service.
What if the battery condition meter dips way down and the motor surges or hesitates when I press the
throttle control lever?
! Fully charge your scooter’s batteries. See V. “Batteries and Charging.”
! Have your authorised Pride Dealer load test each battery.
What if all the systems on my scooter seem to be “dead?”
! Make certain that the key is in the “on” position.
! Check that the batteries are fully charged. See V. “Batteries and Charging.”
! Push in the main circuit breaker reset button. See IV. “Your scooter.”
! If having changed a battery recently, ensure all the battery connections secure.
! Check that the power down timer feature has not been activated. See VI. “Operation.”
If you experience any problems with your scooter that you are not able to solve, contact your authorised Pride
Dealer for information on maintenance and service.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
CONSOLE, CHARGER AND ELECTRONICS
! Keep these areas free of moisture.
! If any of these items do become exposed to moisture, let them dry thoroughly before operating your
scooter again.
NYLON LOCK NUT REPLACEMENT
Any nylon insert lock nut removed during the periodic maintenance, assembly or disassembly of the scooter must
be replaced with a new nut. Nylon insert lock nuts should not be reused as it may cause damage to the nylon insert,
resulting in a less secure fit. Replacement nylon insert lock nuts are available at local hardware stores or through an
authorised Pride Dealer.
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! Prevent personal injury and product damage! Follow all safety instructions for
the proper use of the disinfectant before applying it to your product.
DISPOSAL OF YOUR SCOOTER
Your scooter must be disposed of according to applicable local and national statutory regulations. Contact your
local waste disposal agency for information on proper disposal of packaging, metal frame components, plastic
components, electronics and batteries.
STORAGE
If you plan on not using your scooter for an extended period of time, it is best to:
! Fully charge its batteries prior to storage.
! Store your scooter in a warm, dry environment.
! 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. This damages the battery and can cause personal injury.
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. Pride
recommends that you charge the scooter batteries periodically throughout periods of prolonged storage to ensure
proper performance.
You may also wish to place several boards under the frame of your scooter to raise the scooter 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.
