OPERATOR/CREW PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
This WP contains instructions for performing PMCS on the 7 1/2-ton, Containerized Kitchen Trailer, XCK2000
and XCK2000E1. The procedure lists checks, services, and criteria to ensure that the trailer is prepared for
operation. Perform the checks and services at the specified intervals, keeping in mind the following guidelines:
Do your Before (B) PMCS just before operating the vehicle. Pay attention to CAUTIONS and
Do your During (D) PMCS while operating the vehicle. During means to monitor the vehicle and its
related parts while being operated.
Do your After (A) PMCS right after operating the vehicle. Pay attention to CAUTIONS and WARNINGS.
If something doesn't work due to a fault, troubleshoot the fault with the instructions in this manual.
If the fault cannot be fixed then notify your supervisor.
Always do preventive maintenance in the same order so it gets to be a habit. Once you've had some
practice, it will be much easier to spot any faults in a hurry.
If there is anything wrong, and you can't fix it, write it on a DA Form 2404.
If there is something seriously wrong, report it to Organizational Maintenance immediately.
When you do your preventive maintenance, take along the tools you need to make all the checks. You
always need a rag or two.
Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Clean as you work
and as needed. Keep your equipment clean.
