If you just pushed it on the trailer nothing bad should have happend because you didn't put it in tow mode. If you pushed it alot farther not in tow mode you could have fried electronics. Do you know why it died in the fist place? Did you put it in tow mode before working on it?

It is at my lake house and only go down a few times in the winter. I knew I had to drive it a short distance and recharge unfortuntly my friend decided she knew Percy (my gc's name could make it further. On the way back there was a big hill and it would hardly move so one of us did push a little until it died completly whereas I had to walk 3 miles home to get help. The lights on Percy never died though. I put it on the charger and it took a day to charge but still would not move.

Did you flip switch to tow after recharging?

If not flip switch to tow and wait a minute or so and flip back to run, if nothing is wrong it will reset controller and start working again. Sometimes when batteries get low the system will trip and not work again till switch to tow to reset.

Would not think time to time unless you run into things alot. But it is possible that it needs realigning. Probably have hit something and knocked out. Make sure nothing is bent on both sides. Also make sure tire is not low of air.
