Never had hub gears so no real idea however a quick google makes it appear this is a quite widespread problem so.

      "It's simple to fix your 'slipping in second' problem. Put the handlebar selector in second gear. Now look closely at the indicator chain coming out of the rear hub (through the hole in the rh axle nut). You should see the tip of the fixed rod     (where the chain joins) just appearing out the end of the axle.

Since it's slipping, you won't see the tip. Slacken off the gear cable at the rear hub until it just appears. Problem solved. And nothing is damaged (except your shin :-) ), the AW hub is amazingly robust.

PS There is a neutral gear between 2nd and 3rd with the AW hub. Your cable is pulling too tightly at present, so you are close to that 'neutral'. Cheers, AW_hub"

I have played with the adjustment rod it actually has a yellow line for the adjustment that didn't work out so I think something internal that I can't see and less knowledge of the working than others. I get the basic idea of what happens in a three speed and the five just has another planitary set. I need to probably Just take the hub and send it out to someone else.
