To ensure that your vehicle is ready for operation at all times, inspect it systematically so you can discover any defects
and have them corrected before they result in serious damage or failure. Table 4-1 contains your Unit PMCS. The item
numbers indicate the sequence of minimum inspection requirements. If you're operating the vehicle and notice something
wrong that could damage the equipment if you continue operation, stop operation immediately.
Record all deficiencies and shortcomings, along with the corrective action taken, on DA Form 2404, Equipment Inspection
and Maintenance Worksheet. The Item Number column is the source for the numbers used on the TM Number column
on DA Form 2404.
The item numbers of the table indicate the sequence of the PMCS. Perform at the interval shown below:
Perform your Semiannual (S) PMCS once each six months.
If something doesn't work, troubleshoot it with the instructions in this manual or notify your supervisor.
Always do your preventive maintenance in the same order, so it gets to be a habit. Once you've had some practice, you'll
spot anything wrong in a hurry.
If anything looks wrong and you can't fix it, write it down on your DA Form 2404. If you find something seriously wrong,
report it to direct support as soon as possible.
