Of course, the best way to prevent a sensor wire from not going bad is not hitting the motor against hte boards! Even this doesn't work sometimes. Like Fladust said, sometimes they just... kinda die?
I think it actually got scraped up against the asphalt a few times ... it's up and out of the way now though!
