Hook dolly set tow bar (1) to pintle hook on tow vehicle.
Hook up safety chains (2) to tow vehicle.
Connect intervehicular electrical cable (front harness) (3) between tow vehicle and front dolly junction box (4).
If tow vehicle voltage is 12 VDC use connector J2 on
the dolly junction box; if tow vehicle voltage is 24 VDC
use connector J3. (Connector J3 uses resistors to
step the voltage down to 12 VDC.)

Prior to Towing Check List
Failure to accomplish the necessary checks listed
below could result in damage to the dolly set and/or
injury to personnel. Prior to towing the dolly set,
complete the following checklist to ensure that the
dolly set and tow vehicle are ready.
Check chains (2) and cables (3) between tow vehicle and front dolly for proper routing, and ground clearance.
Check all air hoses (5) and (6) and electrical cable connections between tow vehicle and dolly set and
between front dolly and rear dolly. The air hoses and electrical cables should be routed over the top of the
shelter and clipped to the top of the front adapter.
Make sure clamps (7) on mechanical struts (8) are tight, and strut assembly lockout pins are fully inserted in
the RIDE position for towing vehicle.
Check tire air pressures (9) and inflate/deflate to proper pressure. (See stencil on dolly for proper inflation.)
Check air springs (10) riding height as indicated on shock absorbers (11) to ensure that air pressure is
correct. Correct any discrepancies.
Make sure dolly parking brakes are off on rear dolly.
