1. Dirt, grease, oil, and debris: They only get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Keep the equip-
ment clean. Clean as you work and as needed. Use Breakthrough cleaning solvent to clean metal surfaces.
Use soap and water to clean rubber or plastic material.
2. Bolts, clamps, nuts, and screws: Continuously check for looseness. Look for chipped paint, bare metal, rust,
or corrosion around bolt and screw heads and nuts. Tighten them when you find them loose (WP 0109).

gaps. When these conditions exist, notify DS maintenance on DA Form 5988-E.

bare wires, and broken connectors.
5. Hoses and fluid lines: Check hoses and fluid lines for wear, damage, and leaks. Ensure clamps and fittings
