PREPARATION FOR USE - CONTINUED
Uncoupling Front and Rear Dolly
The next two preparation procedures listed in this
section, Uncoupling Front and Rear Dolly sets, and
Positioning Dolly Set for Coupling to container/shelter,
are performed sequentially for each side separately.
Because there are only two dolly caster assemblies,
once the casters are mounted on the front or rear
uncoupling/positioning/ coupling of one dolly (front or
rear) before removing casters to install on the other
Remove dolly caster assemblies (1) from storage location on front dolly adapter.
Disconnect interdolly air hose and remove along with electrical cables.
Install the two dolly casters (1) on the mounting bosses (2) on the outside of the adapter arms (3) of the front
dolly. (The two crewmen on the front dolly should perform this task.)
Dolly casters cannot be removed after shelter is
coupled to dolly set if pins are not installed on the
opposite side of the adapter mating surface.
Ensure that the dolly caster pins (4) are installed on the opposite side of the adapter mating surface. (Dolly
caster pin is attached to caster assembly to prevent loss.)
Remove the safety restraining straps (5) from tool box and install (one on front and one on rear dolly) from
pad eyes on adapter (6) to pad eyes on lower arm of front dolly.
Adjust the straps (5), keeping tension on strap to retain adapter (6) and lower arm in 45° position. (This
facilitates movement of the dolly set and provides a safety feature since the whole weight of the dolly set is
suspended by the mechanical linkage; the strap keeps the adapter from falling forward.)
Remove the upper attaching bolts (7) from the front dolly adapter.
Upper bolts may be used as a punch to help remove
