Go to your local home improvements store and look for a solution there in the hardware department if you can't find the parts at the pool or spa store.

You might be able to rig metal strap up so that the plumbing if metal is connected to the motor housing.

If there are screws, you might try getting crimp on loops to fit one of the screws on the top of the copper piece, and running a solid ground wire to the motor housing, maybe finding a bolt to connect to there.

That should do it.

    I would try the jumper to see if it works. If it doesn't I would try to tell the seller that it was dead on arrival and you tried the bonding jumper, too.

    I wouldn't wait too long to determine if it works for you depending on what the seller said was his or her return policy.

    In my experience, pumps for pools or spas don't require this bonding jumper to work, though.

    Is this a specific message on a display or a sticker that says to do so for safety reasons?

You can use the AC charger cord from a computer as a replacement for the AC cord of the charger. If the AC cord plugs into the wall and plugs into the charger or charger receptacle on the back of the power chair, you can use it.
If I remember correctly, This chair has a 4 Amp on-board charger which has an AC receptacle on the back of the chair to plug in an AC cord. The off-board chargers take a universal AC cord which will work with a universal computer AC cord. If the AC cord plugs in, use it.

I plugged in a spa/swimming pool motor/pump with water hooked to it as to not run it dry and it does not come on. Is it bad or how can I tell if it is bad. The motor is a GE. The pump unit is called ULTRA...

What did you plug it in to? Is it a cord or receptacle? Is there a reset button on the motor? Is the receptacle a GFI? Did you try to plug something else in there to see if it works? Check the breaker. You don't have to worry about running it dry, a couple seconds to test it won't hurt it. Most pool pumps are all plastic and they run for days dry, check it out.

Pumps Capacity?

# Aboveground filter systems and small inground pools (under 10,000 gals) should use a Low Head pump like a Maxim, or Dynamo or Power-Flo. # Pools from 10,000-20,000 gals can use a Medium Head pump like a SuperPump, a Pinnacle or Cygnet. # Pools over 20,000 gals could possibly use the High Head pumps like, Super II, Challenger, Ultra-Flo or the Sta-Rite pumps. # Pool/ Spa combos with at least 3 lines influent and 2 - 3 back to the pool, 2" plumbing may be able to handle the Ultra High Head pumps like NorthStar and the WhisperFlo
