We received an email from Hull University Boat Club who own two Coxmate SRT units about what they should be doing to keep them in good working order.
Here's our reply
- Regarding charging the batteries – since the Coxmate has a power management system, I’d suggest you keep them plugged in when not in use. Or give them to someone to charge up once a month during the holidays when the University isn't rowing.
- You clearly row in a muddy tidal estuary – buy a big bag of baby wipes from the supermarket and use them to wipe the Coxmate down after each outing is probably good practice to prevent build-up of dirt.
- Keep the magnetic contacts clean on the base of the box and the boat mounting plate.
- Put a little silicone grease into the Mic socket monthly there is a syringe full in the blue carry boxes.
