Exeter, PA 18643-2694 If you experience any problems with your Hurricane PMV that you are not able to solve, or if you do not feel confident in your ability to perform any of the instructions contained in this manual, please contact your local Pride provider.
Safety must always come first. If you are uncertain about a situation, avoid it. Feel free to use your Hurricane PMV on lawns or in park areas, but avoid tall grass. Packed gravel, such as in driveways or on roads will not present a problem, but avoid loosely packed gravel or sand.
The controlled tests show that, when you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 3. This shifts the center of gravity of you and your Hurricane PMV toward the front of the PMV for improved stability.
! Do not carry passengers on your Hurricane PMV under any circumstances. ! Never drive your Hurricane PMV across the side of a hill or diagonally up or down a hill; do not stop, if possible, while driving up or down an incline.
! Whether or not the Hurricane PMV is in motion. An affected Hurricane PMV’s movement can be erratic. It may move by itself or come to a sudden stop. Further- more, it is possible for EMI/RFI to unexpectedly release the brakes on a Hurricane PMV. Some intense sources of EMI/RFI can even damage the control system.
! Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations and hand-held or mobile two-way radios, and try not to come close to them. For example, if you are in a Hurricane PMV with an immunity level of 20 V/m, you should remain at least three feet from a hand-held two-way radio and ten feet from a mobile two-way radio.

Throttle Control Lever This lever allows you to control the forward speed and the reverse speed of your Hurricane PMV up to the maximum speed you preset with the speed adjustment dial. Place your right hand on the right handgrip and your left hand on the left handgrip.

“rest.” Push in the reset button to reset the breaker. If the breaker trips frequently, you may need to charge your batteries more often. You may also need to have your Hurricane PMV dealer perform a load test on your Hurricane PMV’s batteries.
Hurricane PMV’s batteries for 8 to 14 hours after daily use. ! If you use your Hurricane PMV once a week or less, charge its batteries at least once a week for 12 to 14 hours at a time.
What type and size of battery should I use? We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both Sealed Lead-Acid (SLA) and Gel Cell are deep-cycle batteries that offer similar performance in your Hurricane PMV. Do not use wet-cell batteries, which have removable caps.
It may take a few days for the temperature of your Hurricane PMV’s batteries to stabilize and adjust to their new room or ambient temperature. More importantly, it takes a few charging cycles (a partial drain followed by a full recharge) to establish the critical chemical balance that is essential to a deep-cycle battery’s peak performance and...

PMV. You can disassemble the Hurricane PMV into six pieces: the seat, the front frame, the rear frame, the rear shroud, and the batteries. You can also remove the utility tray if necessary. Place the PMV in an area where you have sufficient clearance to move the parts around.
