Introduction

Dear Customer:
Congratulations on the purchase of your new Escape® Plus Electric

Like any other piece of machinery or technology, the Escape® Plus also requires proper maintenance and care to keep the product working over extended use. Neglecting your machine, abusing it, or not operating it properly can void its warranty and prevent the machine from performing to the quality and standard you’d expect out of the Mytee line.
If you have any warranty concerns or questions, please review this manual thoroughly or do not hesitate to contact your distributor. If there are questions regarding maintenance, replacement, or ordering parts please contact an authorized Mytee Service Center. To see an updated list please visit our website at https://www.mytee.com/support/find-distributors/.

Important Safety Information

Please read and understand this manual completely before operating this machine.
Grounding Instructions
This machine must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical shock. This machine is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances. Do not remove the ground pin; if missing, replace the plug before use.
MYTEE ETM-LX-PLUS Escape Plus Electric Truckmount User Manual  & troubleshooting 3
Improper installation of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Be sure to check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded.
If the plug will not fit in the outlet do not modify the plug or the machine’s cord, instead have a proper outlet installed by a qualified technician.
This machine is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit and with a grounding plug similar to the one in Figure 1 below.
If a proper outlet is not available, follow the illustrations in Figures 2 & 3 to install a temporary-grounding plug. This temporary workaround should be used only until a proper
outlet (Figure 1) can be installed by a qualified electrician. When and if this type of adapter is employed, screw the adapter’s extended tab into place with a metal screw.
However, grounding adapters are not approved for use in Canada.
Again, be sure to check the grounding pin for damages and replace it if necessary.
The Green, or Green-Yellow, wire in the cord is the grounding wire. When replacing a plug, this wire must be attached to only the grounding pin.
DO NOT use extension cords.MYTEE ETM-LX-PLUS Escape Plus Electric Truckmount User Manual  & troubleshooting 4
