ORGANIZATIONAL PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
To ensure that the 7 1/2 ton, Containerized Kitchen Trailer, XCK2000 and XCK2000E1 is ready for operation at all
times, it must be inspected systematically so that defects may be discovered and corrected before they result
in serious damage or failure. This WP contains a tabulated listing of Preventive Maintenance Checks and
Services (PMCS) to be performed by Organizational Maintenance personnel. All deficiencies and shortcomings
will be recorded as well as the corrective action taken on DA Form 2404 at the earliest possible opportunity.
ORGANIZATIONAL PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES
a. The item numbers indicate the sequence of the PMCS. Perform at the intervals shown below:

c. Always do your preventive maintenance in the same order, so it gets to be a habit. Once you've
had some practice, you'll spot anything wrong in a hurry.

Dry-cleaning solvent P-D-680 used to clean parts is potentially dangerous to personnel and property.
Do not use near an open flame or excessive heat. Flash point of dry-cleaning solvent is 138 F (59C).
(1) Keep it clean: Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious
problem. Clean as you work and as needed. Use dry-cleaning solvent (P-D-680) to clean metal
surfaces. Use soap when you clean rubber or plastic material.
(2) Bolts, nuts, and screws: Check that they are not loose, missing, bent, or broken. You can't
try them all with a tool, of course; but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt
heads. Tighten any that you find loose.
(3) Welds: Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. If you
find a bad weld, report it to Direct Support.
(4) Electric wires and connectors: Look for cracked or broken insulation, bare wires, and loose
or broken connectors. Pay particular attention to areas where wires pass through conduit holes
or may rub against other components. Tighten loose connections and make sure the wires are
in good condition.
(5) Air hoses: Look for wear, damage and leaks. Make sure clamps and fittings are tight. If a
leak comes from a loose fitting or connector, tighten it. If something is broken or worn out,
either correct it or report it to Direct Support Maintenance. (WP 0016 00-14)
