Linear Actuators:
•Check wiring or tubing leading from the ground to the control box for signs of damage.

Always wear protective gloves and eyewear while handling batteries.

Powder Coat Finish:
To help preserve your powder coat finish, it is recommended to perodically wash your gates, fence panels, posts down using a mild detergent and soft cloth (more frequent washing is recommend for locations near the ocean). If automated, take precautionary measures to avoid saturating any of the electronics. Do not attempt to use any abrasive materials on your gates as this may wear off the finish, pressure washing also not recommended.
