Sounds like a loose battery connection, bad battery or alternator going bad. I would check and fully charge the battery first. Make sure all connections are clean and tight. Also check the negative connections on the frame and motor.

Yep dandy is correct pay real close attention to the auxiliary wire that goes to the power distribution box.
