Section II. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES
To insure that the expandable, frame-type tent is ready for operation at all times, it must be inspected systematically so

maintenance checks and services to be performed are listed and described in paragraph 3-5. Defects discovered will be
noted for future correction, to be made as soon as possible. All deficiencies and shortcomings, together with the
corrective action taken, will be recorded on DA Form 2404 (Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet) at the-
earliest possible opportunity.
Remove dirt and foreign matter from the tent body, liner and covers, support components, and anchoring components,
with a soap and water solution, using a soft-bristle brush.
