2-13. OPERATION IN DUST OR SAND.
Lubricate the equipment in accordance with the LO 10-3510-209-12.
Compressed air used for cleaning purposes will not exceed 30 psi (207 kPa). Use
only with effective chip-guarding and personal-protective equipment (goggles,
shield, gloves, etc.).
If possible, shut down the unit during severe dust storms and cover it with a tarpaulin or other
suitable protective covering. When the area is reasonably clear of dust, clean the unit thoroughly.
Use dry compressed air to clean hard-to-reach places.
2-14. OPERATION IN SNOW AND MUD.
Take necessary precautions to ensure a firm footing for the platform by using a field-expedient blocking
underneath the platform pads.
2-15. OPERATION IN SALTWATER AREAS.
Inspect the laundry unit frequently for rust and corrosion. Rusted or corroded condition must be
corrected immediately. If rust or corrosion is present, notify your supervisor.
Do not direct high-pressure water hose nozzles or steam cleaner nozzles into
electrical connections/junction boxes.
Frequently wash the laundry unit to prevent a buildup of salt deposits.
2-16 EMERGENCY PROCEDURES.
Lack of lubrication may cause pump damage when straight gasoline is used as
fuel. To avoid failure, 1 quart (0.9 liter) of oil must be mixed with each 5 gallons
(19 liters) of gasoline used.
The laundry unit is designed to operate on diesel fuel. Under emergency conditions the dryer and
water heater may be fueled with gasoline (item 11, app C). When using gasoline as the fuel
source, 1 quart of OE-30 weight oil (item 13, app C) must be added to 5 gallons of gasoline.
There is no alternative fuel source for the generator.
