Special Instructions. Preventive maintenance is not limited to performing the checks and services listed in the
PMCS table. See Figure 4-1 for PMCS routing. Covering unused receptacles, stowing unused accessories, and other routine
procedures such as equipment inventory, cleaning components, and touch up painting are not listed in the table. These are
things you should do any time you see that they need to be done. If a routine check is listed in the PMCS table, it is because
experience has shown that problems may occur with this item. Take along tools and cleaning cloths needed to perform the
required checks and services.
