OnBoard Battery Charger
The battery charger is located in the left corner of the utility tray. See figure 7. This is a gray colored plastic box
with a green LED indicator on the exterior of the case. The main power cord extends from the charger and should
be coiled to the side of the trunk. Use the reusable fastener strap to coil the power cord.
To ensure that the charger and its power cord do not become damaged, exercise caution when storing personal
items in the electronics module . Also be aware that the battery charger could warm up during battery charging.
Electronic Controller Module
The electronic controller module is on the right side of the utility tray. See figure 7. This controller receives direc-
tions from the control console assembly and sends power to the motor, the brakes, and the lighting system.
WARNING! Keep the electronic controller module free from moisture. In the event that
the electronics become exposed to moisture, do not attempt to operate the Hurricane
PMV until it has been dried thoroughly.
Main Circuit Breaker
When the voltage in your Hurricane PMV's batteries becomes low and your Hurricane PMV is heavily strained
because of excessive loads or steep inclines, the main circuit breaker may trip to protect your Hurricane PMV's
motor and electronics from damage. The main circuit breaker is mounted on the electronic controller assembly.
See figure 7. The main circuit breaker reset button pops out when the breaker trips. When the breaker trips, the
entire electrical system of your Hurricane PMV is shut down. Allow a minute or so for your Hurricane PMV's
electronics to "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. If the main circuit breaker trips repeatedly, see your authorized Pride provider for
The ammeter is located on the utility tray. See figure 7. You can check the charge level of the batteries by the
ammeter. The battery charger must be plugged into a power outlet to obtain a reading. When the amperage reading
is at or near zero (0) amps, the battery charging is complete.
The anti-tip wheels are a vital safety feature of your Hurricane PMV. Never remove the anti-tip wheels. They
prevent the Hurricane PMV from tipping backwards on an incline. See figure 7.
The handbrake lever is located on the tiller handle. It offers additional stopping power. You must release the
throttle when using this brake, otherwise the Hurricane PMV may not come to a complete stop.
Manual Freewheel Lever
When you need to push your Hurricane PMV for short distances, you can place it in manual freewheel mode. The
manual freewheel lever is located on the end of the motor assembly (right rear of the PMV). Pull this lever up to
disable the drive system. The motor is also electrically disengaged from the control box and will not run when you
press the throttle lever. See figure 7.
