  2. Ever hear of Aled Owen? He’s probably the most internationally recognized and celebrated Sheep Dog trainer, trials competitor and breeder residing in the UK. Your part of the planet. https://www.aled-owen-sheepdogs.co.uk I had a Border Collie, Gwyndolen , that was bred from his Border Collie Roy’s Lineage. I lost her 4 years ago and like all of the Female Collies I’ve raised, was an exceptional Collie. She loved the TV series Lassie and where-ever she was, she’d come running to sit in front of the TV at the first sounds from the show’s theme song. She would watch the whole show. She also had a favorite movie, "Never Cry Wolf". REDDY

  3. Typical results from personal experience and posts here on the forum, are that if you avoid riding in heavy downpours or continually riding in the rain, water incursions are usually not a problem. But it doesn’t hurt to use some precautions, particularly on the large Controller to Motors Higo connector. WD-40’s name is derived from, "Water Displacement, 40th Formulation". It’s not a lubricant. The connector is engineered to try and prevent water incursions. I have never had this problem in over 20,000 miles on my two Sondors. I wonder if the motor cut-out switch, in a brake lever, is water resistant or water proof. I avoid riding in rain if I can help it. It’s not because of electrical problems but it takes considerable labor to clean my bikes. Never clean your Sondors with a pressure washer. I will say, that on one of my hybrid Cannondale H400 non eBikes, it was really fun being caught in a heavy downpour and a high winds storm. My only problem was being able to see and glasses didn’t help, I was near blinded. For a while I carried goggles when riding in summer with a police motorcycle type helmet and with me in rain possible rides, in winter, where they help, even though I ride with this Aviators Helmet with a clear and tinted visor. I do believe that a ziplock baggie over the LCD will protect it in downpours and placing it in a ziplock bag full of uncooked rice, after an anomaly like encountered in this thread, can help dry it, if it has experienced water incursion. There are pictures of motors on this forum, completely full of rust and destroyed. Never leave an ebike stored outside and if you live in a area with drastic humidity and temperatures changes and store your bike in an unheated building or garage, a box fan, to circulate air inside that enclosed space, will help keep condensations from forming, outside and inside your bike. In newer Sondors Models, with internal cable routing, the product, "Corrosion X" can be used to stave-off rust and corrosion on any metals, even inside your bikes frame. I have no idea about it’s reaction on electrical components so I wouldn’t use it on any of those. I just try and avoid riding in the rain. REDDY

  4. Glad you're "On The Road Again". https://youtu.be/M6Ggp3TJjuE I carry a inexpensive plastic drop cloth in a pannier, just in case I get caught in a storm and I try to avoid rain because even riding on wet roads it takes 2 hours to clean my bikes. https://www.electricbike.com/water-proofing-trouble-shooting/ ‘Happy Trails’ REDDY

  6. Since Heavy Rain was mentioned and your sure that it’s not any higo connector, that has moisture inside, try replacing the shunt, green cap, on the cable to the display and see if power is restored. The display and its control buttons are somewhat water resistant but not water proof. If power is not restored you’ll have to try tracing power from the controller to the motor with a multimeter. You will need to unplug the large HiGo connector under the right chainstay and, while depressing the throttle, see if you can measure any voltage from any of to pins of the three inside that connector.
