AFTER USE - CONTINUED
Lowering Dolly Set and Container/Shelter
Attempting to lower a dolly set and attached shelter,
while dolly set is still coupled to the tow vehicle could
result in personal injury and/or damage to the dolly set
and the container/shelter.
Ensure the loaded dolly set (transporting the container/shelter) has been uncoupled from the tow vehicle and
is not attached to the tow vehicle in any way(electrical cables, brake cables (air hoses), safety chains, etc.)
Ensure the dolly set tow bar lunette (1) has been detached from the pintle hook on the tow vehicle.
Never lower a dolly set with the tow bar in the raised
position as damage may occur to the shelter front
Place the dolly set tow bar (2) on the ground.
Ensure that all hydraulic pump release valves (3) are closed in the PUMP position.
Pushing the safety pins from the strut assemblies
using the fingers should not be attempted under any
circumstances as the fingers could be severed if the
strut released with a finger in the pin hole.
Adapter arms must remain vertical until contact is
made with the ground. If adapter arms are tilted, the
sides are not being lowered at the same rate.
Each crewman should loosen his strut assembly by unscrewing clamps (4). Care fully, with hands and fingers
away from struts (5), pump hydraulic pump handles (6) until cylinders open strut knee joints at pivot points
(7). Apply hand pressure on the inside of pivot point (7) to open struts, being extremely careful not to allow
fingers in a potential "pinch point. The struts (5) must break open at this point.
An alternate method to break the strut can be accomplished by applying hydraulic pressure to cylinders (8)
tthat will remove pressure from the pins so the pins can be easily removed. (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PUSH
OUT SAFETY PINS WITH FINGERS!).
