Solar Gate Opener Fixed

tumblr_mu4jekiYxS1sjhohlo1_1280The solar powered motorised gate opener is wonderful when it works…..We installed and wired it ourselves and I am not sure if the battery charge/discharge has ever worked properly. It works when there is sun shining on the panel, otherwise… not so much. It also has thermal cutouts in the control box, so we built it a shade and in the motor, so we installed a shade canopy for the arm and nine times out of ten it works. It stopped working all together, so Brad pulled it to pieces, soldered something, watched a couple of youtube videos then put it back together. Now it works.
