When your kit arrives - check to make sure everything is there!
The battery ships at the storage voltage - so it needs to be charged to full before using it to avoid damaging the battery. HOWEVER do not leave a fully charged battery sitting longer than 3 days without using it. So only charge to full the day of - or the day before - you plan to use it.
⚠️Recharge the battery no more than 2 days before you intend to use it again ⚠️
🚫Do not leave a fully charged battery sitting more than 2 days before use 🚫Do not leave the discharged battery sitting more than 2 days before charging at least to storage voltage 🚫Do not store the battery plugged into the drive 🚫 Do not leave the battery in storage longer than 3 months without taking it out to charge to full and discharge back to storage voltage before continuing to store it.
SwiftPaws kits are designed to be set up and taken down every time.
- take at least the main drive unit and remote controller into a climate controlled area when not is use. The drive and remote controller house electronics that are not water or weather proof.
- You may opt to leave the field pulleys staked in place - this is fine - you can even hose them off when they get dirty - but NOT THE MAIN DRIVE UNIT - We also recommend winding up the line after each use. If you leave the line out, it may bring water into the drive which is not water proof. It will also cause the line to deteriorate rapidly, thus needing to be replaced more often.
