CSSL electrical connections can be made only by MOS 51R, 52C, 52D, 52G or
qualified civilian personnel. If ungrounded power is used, the CSSL cargo container
must be electrically grounded. Failure to ground the CSSL may result in serious
injury or death to personnel from electrical shock.
There are some common items to check on the CSSL and associated equipment. These include the following:
Proper operation and condition of the washer/dryers
Condition of the water supply, wastewater drain hoses and freshwater drain hoses.
Proper operation of interior lights, space heater and vent fan
Condition of 3,000 gallon capacity freshwater and wastewater fabric tanks (if used)
Condition of the power supply cable
Condition and proper connection of ground rod (if used)
Lubrication Service Intervals.
Lubricate the door hinge and latch assembly of the general cargo container in accordance with TM 55-8115-204-23&P.
Lubricate the TEMPER in accordance with TM 10-8340-224-13.
Proper service of the CSSL and components is an integral part of maintenance. Regular cleaning prevents possible
problems in the future, so make it a habit to clean the CSSL and its components whenever necessary.
Frequently wipe down the Washer/Dryers with a rag and check the lint traps daily.
Sweep the interior of the cargo container on a daily basis and keep it clean of trash on a regular schedule.
