9 times out of 10 you will never use it, or if you do it will not be for the cart.... maybe a camp stove fire or something else but I have had more than one cart with an extinguisher... and one at every exit in the house and shop.
Heck this cart would have burnt to the ground if the passerby hadn't had one
Put one in your truck too.

your average store bought DMM cannot measure this very accurately. you can measure for shorts, obvious high resistance, or intermittent breaks but very accurate low resistance measurements require a high end meter.

Both of my Flukes and my Home Depot Sperry and my Chinese (sorry, don't know if it has a brand name?) knock off all read the same on my sepex test motor? 1.4

Since Plumquick's motor is in this cart, I went ahead and updated them this morning so they had all the facts as well, just in cases... I've spoke to both Rick and Robby on this, when I told them the resistance measurement there was no sign of concern.

So heard back from Alltrax, I am sending the controller and solenoid to them for forensics, along with the fuse.. Apparently the fuse blowing raises some eyebrows as well. They want to know if the solenoid welded shut, which I will test my self with my ohm meter, to see if it's welded shut, and if not I will will hit it with 48 volts to see if it activates, I'll let you guys know on this when I get it out.

What they are trying to determine is why the controller went up like it did, so even if the solenoid did weld shut they want to see if they can change the programming so the controller reacts differently....

On a side note, Alltrax did call and talk to Plumquick and Alltrax has completely ruled out the motor as the cause of the failure.

Alltrax and Pluquick stated that on the field coil an acceptable range is .9 ohm to 3 ohms, so we are totally within range.

Any suggestions as to what fire extinguisher, or at least what type, we should be carrying on these carts? Thinkin about
one of these one of these
.

Or maybe someone should start another thread to start making suggestions.
