Is there any help from the brains trust here regarding some difficulties I'm having with my Leccie?
Running off a 120A/H gel battery, when the usage gets below 13A the motor begins to play up n not function properly.
Symptoms include poor performance, lack of control, and total disconnect requiring the power to require bumping up again from its previous setting when turned off. (if that last bit makes sense). It's basically all the drama's of severely low battery.
I've never had one of these apart before but reckon it cant be too hard.
I'd happily take it to a service professional if there were one here in Adelaide, but investigations there have drawn a blank.
I've checked n cleaned the battery connections and the battery indicator on the motor is saying that the batteries charge is still good when these symptoms arise. Whilst I don't have a dedicated multimeter, connecting up to the charger at the end of the day shows how much power was used from the battery, hence the knowledge on where the problems begin.
