OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS
General. Operation of the LMS Type 1 Shelter under unusual conditions pertains to weather and
environmental conditions. Unusual conditions are defined as extreme heat or cold, sandy areas,
dusty areas, salt water areas, high altitudes or similar conditions not normally encountered.
Operation. Operation of the LMS Type 1 enclosure under unusual conditions requires inspection of
selected components based on the environmental and unusual conditions. The differences are in the
type and frequency of lubrication, preventive maintenance and cleaning. The same preventive
maintenance concepts apply to operation of the LMS Type 1 Shelter under unusual conditions and
usual conditions. The difference is in the frequency of performance. Under unusual conditions, the
various checks and procedures must be performed once a week to ensure optimum performance of
Operation in Extreme Cold.
Inspect seals and gaskets for possible damage.
Operation in Salt Water Areas.
General. Wipe the exposed surfaces of the LMS enclosure interior and exterior, as well as
component surfaces, with clean, fresh water. Be careful not to contaminate the fuel system
or damage the electrical system with water.
Protection. Remove all rust and corrosion immediately. Coat exposed metal surfaces with
corrosion prevention compound material and apply primer coating (WP 0044, Table 1, Item
33), or lubricating oil (WP 0044, Table 1, Item 34,) as required.
Heat and High Humidity
. Lubricate all mechanically operated linkages
