    Thank you, if someone does want to view it then hubby would have to get it out. The batteries are perfect as they have been kept on charge so there is no problem with them.
    I have put it on FB, local and Market Place and I do keep reposting it.
    To be honest, hubby does little or nothing for me and even when I ask it is done with a grudge.
    I am really fed up with struggling to do anything and everything.
    I do have a carer but hubby won't have her here when he is at home, mainly because he is always in bed most of the morning, idleness doesn't come into it.
    Since he was diagnosed with NHL, the incurable type, he has got even worse in spite of it being kept stable with chemo.
    Life goes on and there is no point in crying over what it used to be.

    Nukecad, no apologies needed and I do not take offence easily.
    Didn't see you post anyway, only just come in from watering the plants whilst a certain person has been sat on their btm watching tv.
    That job takes me at least a couple of hours when in fact it should take 30 mins for someone able.

    It wasn't that bad, but in the circumstances may have been considered bad taste.

    You can find replacements for all sorts of things online.

    Beau, are the batteries charging now?
    I know you keep saying that they will be fine because they have always been kept charged up, but if it is now buried at the back of the shed, even if batteries were fully chraged when it went in they will begin to lose charge from that time.
    Once the get below a certain voltage the charger will not recognise them when connected again and in effect the batteries are finished.
    I really needs getting out and chargig and given a run about......wheel bearings seize, electric brakes stick on, speed controls can get affected and so on.
    It really does need getting out and checking, otherwise you will end up having to give it away as a non runner.
    Where in the country are you?

    Stree, it is in the garage and the batteries are on charge all of the time. I insisted on that so as not to ruin them.
    As for the rest, I can't get it out myself. Our garage is like a dumping ground for broken and worn out disability equipment. Hubby will not dispose of anything "just in case" or "I will repair it". He is capable but just can't be bothered.
    I have a pavement scooter in there that needs new brushes in the motor, nothing else wrong with it, just before the brushes went I spent a fortune on solid tyres and new batteries. He hasn't touched it saying he will do it sometime. Batteries for that are kept on charge too.
    In the end I had to go out and buy another scooter at great expense, just because he can't be bothered. My scooter is my legs, without it I couldn't get anywhere independently.

    I am in North Derbyshire

    That's sort of what I was getting at. You sound like you could benefit from a new model with more power.
