4-9. Trailer Assembly Lubrication.
Refer to TM 9-2330-205-14&P for trailer Lubrication Order.
Personnel Platform Lubrication. The personnel platform is a modification to the standard M200A1 trailer
and, as such, does not appear in the associated LO. Lubricate the personnel platform semiannually as follows:
Clean parts in a well-ventilated area. Avoid inhalation of solvent fumes and prolonged
exposure of skin to cleaning solvent. Wash exposed skin thoroughly. Dry cleaning
solvent (PD-680) used to clean parts is potentially dangerous to personnel and property.
Do not smoke or use near open flame or excessive heat. Flash point of solvent is 100°F
to 138°F ( 38°C to 59°C ).
(1) Using PD-680, or equivalent, clean area to be lubricated.
(2) Apply OE lubricating oil to personnel platform pivot points and to platform anchor quick-release pins.
Section V. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES
The PMCS chart in this section contains all necessary unit preventive maintenance
checks and services for this equipment.
4-10. General. The trailer assemblies and generator sets must be inspected and serviced systematically to
insure that the power plant is ready for operation at all times. Inspection will allow defects to be discovered and
corrected before they result in serious damage or failure. Table 4-1 contains a tabulated list of preventive
maintenance checks and services to be performed by unit maintenance personnel. All of the unit PMCS on the
trailers is scheduled to be performed semiannually or annually. Unit PMCS on the generator sets is scheduled
monthly or on a per-hours-of-operation basis. The running time meters on the control panels are used to
determine the operating time of the generator sets. Using the following as a guide, do the checks and services at
the intervals shown. Observe all CAUTIONS and WARNINGS.
a. For PMCS performed on an operating time basis, perform your hourly (H) PMCS as close as possible to the
time intervals indicated.
For units in continuous operation, perform PMCS before starting operation if continuous
operation will extend service interval past that which is shown.
b. Perform your monthly (M) PMCS every month or 100 hours of generator set operating time.
c. Do your semiannual (S) PMCS once every six months.
d. Do your annual (A) PMCS once every year.
