Stow inflation and deflation ejector assembly, conditioned air outlet compartment divider panel, external dc
electrical power input cable assembly, external battery dc power cable assembly, vacuum hose assembly, electrical de
power standby cable assembly, junction box and valve manifold assembly, compressed air hose assembly, and one
conditioned air duct assembly in battery access and storage compartment (fig. 1-1) as shown in figure 2-12.
Close and secure all panels and doors.
Close or install protective covers or caps on connection fittings and receptacles.
If power unit is to be handled or loaded by hoisting, install Sling on hoist rings at corners of power unit as
shown in figure 2-13.
Hoisting. Attach Sling (fig. 2-18) to a crane, helicopter, or other hoisting device capable of lifting a minimum of
5000 pounds and hoist to the desired location.
Do not use lifting equipment with capacity of less than 5000 pounds Do not allow power unit
to swing back and forth when it is suspended. Failure to observe this warning may result in
severe injury or death to personnel or damage to equipment.
Fork Lifting. Position the fork lift (5000 pound minimum capacity) at the fork lift points designated on the power
unit and shown in figure 2-13 and lift power unit for loading or transport over short distances.
Do not use fork lift with capacity of less than 5000 pounds. Do not allow power unit to rock
excessively on fork lift. Failure to observe this warning may result in severe injury or death to
personnel or damage to equipment.
Wheeled Transporter. Attach wheeled transporter or mobilizer to power unit as follows.
Separate transporter sections and prepare transporter for use observing recommendations of transporter
Position transporter sections at ends of power unit adjacent to wheeled transporter attachment points (fig.
2-13) at ends of power unit. Connect transporter to power unit attachment points.
Operate transporter according to transporter manufacturer's instruction to raise power unit to towing height.
Use approved towing equipment or manually move power unit to desired position.
When power unit is in desired position, operate transporter to lower container. Disconnect and remove
Skidding. Attach a cable or chain sling to skidding and tie down rings (fig. 2-13) and connect to suitable
equipment for skidding to desired location.
Do not attach skidding sling to skidding equipment an such a manner that the angle between
any leg of the sling and the end of the container is less than 45 degrees Any angle less than
45 degrees will cause an excessive side strain which could damage the power unit. Limit
skidding of the power unit to short distances over smooth level terrain to prevent damage to
power unit skids.
Shipment. The power unit may be transported by airplane, helicopter, ship, truck, or train. The various tie down
and hoisting rings identified on the power unit and shown in figure 2-13 may be used to secure the power unit to the
Position power unit with skid base parallel to the longitudinal axis of the carrier to prevent
excessive side loads on the skids. Make sure the carrier and restraining methods are capable
of supporting a weight of 5000 pounds minimum.
i. Unloading. Unload the power unit from the transport equipment and locate in the desired position using any of
the handling methods described in d, e, f, or g above.
