Mowing at an incline/bumps stop my mower motor

This is my 2nd year with the EGO. This year, as soon as I hit a bump, lift the front wheels to turn it around, or go down/up a very low edge (2 inches) the motor turns off. Not quickly as if it were an emergency stop, just slowly whirs down. I press on the key then the trigger, and it starts again no problem.

I have many bumps on my lawn, and I turn often. It can quit on me over 70 times in less than 30 minutes. Infuriating, annoying.

Green clamps are properly locked, battery is in place. It's been getting worse over the last 4 weeks. Any ideas? I always store my mower standing up. Might this affect some sort of position detector responsible to create an emergency stop of the motor if the mower flips over by accident for example?
