I don't think its about being ashamed. Just asking for a voucher here or on the takealot thread will have the so called forum police threaten to ban you or someone calling out 'beggar' just to up their post count. Maybe having another account is a safer option just in case you get banned...
Tested the battery yesterday and it is still fine. Voltage around 12.5 under load. The charger is also working fine.
Is there anything else I can check before replacing the receiver?
Could anything else affect the range? It was working fine for more than 2 years.
Nope - I know the gate works off the battery and it's opening and closing fine so just opened up the motor cover and checked if everything looked fine, cleaned up inside and put the cover back. I will test the battery this afternoon.
