NXG Vehicle Maintenance
The list below shows what should be done monthly and Bi-Annually (or at 125 hours of operation). Operating hours are shown on the Smart Display of your instrument panel.
Daily Visual Inspection
Performed daily before vehicle is put into service.
1. Obvious Damage
2. Cracked Frame Welds
3. Model Tag Readable
4. Tires Properly Inflated and Checked for Damage
5. Fluid Leaks
6. Charging Cord Unplugged
7. Wire Insulation Undamaged
8. Battery Connections Clean and Secure
9. Battery Water Level
12. Horn (Switch must be turned on.)
13. Battery Discharge Indicator
14. Switch in OFF position (if leaving vehicle)
1. Check operation of all gauges, horn, and lights.
2. Check BDI for battery state of charge.
3. Charge batteries when vehicle is not in service. Charge overnight up to 8 hours.
4. Check tires for cuts, excessive wear, and cold pressure.
5. Check wheels for bent rims, missing or loose lug nuts.
6. Check battery for correct electrolyte level.
7. Check for loose steering. Adjust as required.
8. Clean batteries and terminals with a solution of ¼ cup (60 mL) baking soda to 1½ gallon of water.
9. Tighten terminals and coat with anti-corrosion compound.
Semi-Annual or every 125 hours of operation
1. Inspect brake system linkages, brake linings, and other components for wear and adjustment.
2. Check specific gravity of all battery cells using a hydrometer.
1. In freezing temperatures recharge the batteries after adding distilled water to make sure that the water mixes with the electrolyte properly. Otherwise, the water may freeze and damage the batteries.
2. Pneumatic tire recommended tire pressure is 60 psi for LRB tires and 90 psi for LRC tires. Improper tire inflation may reduce tire life and adversely affect vehicle handling. It may also lead to sudden tire failure, resulting in a loss of vehicle control.
3. A hydrometer, measuring the specific gravity of the electrolyte, is used to determine if a battery is properly charged. With a fully charged battery, the reading should be about 1.260; fully discharged it should be about 1.100.
4. The transaxle is sealed and does not require routine maintenance.
