Rainy days not only bring us refreshing, but also bring us trouble when we travel. What protection should be done when riding an electric cargo bike in rainy days? The following will introduce you to the four precautions for safe riding of electric cargo bikes on rainy days.
1、 Don’t Wade when you are not sure
The motor, controller, battery and other important parts of the electric cargo bike are generally waterproof. Under normal circumstances, it doesn’t matter even if they are wet by rain, but this doesn’t mean that the electric cargo bike can walk through the water at will. Don’t rush into places with serious water accumulation, and you should try to detour. If you have to cross, you should try to choose some roads with shallow water, and the water depth should not exceed half of the wheel, because once the motor is damp or flooded, it is very likely to cause a series of problems, such as the horn problem, the brake fails, and the controller cannot work normally.
2、 Dry in time after rain
When parking the electric cargo bike in rainy days, it is best to cover it with plastic cloth to protect the motor, controller and battery of the cargo bike tricycle from being wet by rain. If the electric cargo bike is stored in the open place, it is best to take down the battery indoors. After the electric cargo bike is in the rain, do not put the battery into the power supply rashly, which may cause the occurrence of short circuit. After heavy rain, put the electric cargo bike in a ventilated place to dry. Before putting the battery into power on and starting, wipe the battery and the connecting socket with a rag or paper towel to avoid leakage.
3、 Remove chain rust
If the electric cargo bike chain rusts after the rain, you can first wipe off the rust with the cleaning agent used to clean the kitchen, and then wash it with diesel, which can easily remove the rust. In addition, you can also buy some Castor seeds, peel their shells, wrap them with fine flannelette and smash them, and wipe the electric tricycle with it, which can make the rims and spokes bright and shiny, and also play a certain role in rust prevention.
4、 Be careful when riding in rainy days
The ground is easy to slip in rainy days. When you travel, you should pay attention to changing tires in time, and it is best to choose tires with drainage patterns; In the process of driving, the speed should not be too fast. When braking, the action should be gentle, and the road conditions should be judged as soon as possible. Do not brake quickly, so as to avoid accidental injury caused by uncontrolled wheel slip; When driving, try to avoid those zebra crossings and road traffic signs. Because these places are a few millimeters higher than the ground and relatively slippery, it is very easy to slip after the rain is wet, and it is easier to fall when you brake on them inadvertently.
