LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS (CONT)
LOADING RAMPS (43). Two spring-assisted loading ramps (43), located at the rear of the semitrailer, can be manually
adjusted to match the span widths of different payload vehicles.
SAFETY CHAINS (44). Two safety chains (44) with load binders, secure the ramps in an upright position during
transport. Chains are attached to the ramps by a quick-link so they can be adjusted to ensure tension on the binder when
TOWING SHACKLES (45). Two towing shackles (45), stored in the stowage compartment, can be installed on the rear
recovery eyes of the platform to allow the platform to be recovered from the rear.
CROWBAR AND ISOLATION VALVE HANDLE EXTENSION (46). The crowbar and isolation valve handle extension
(46), mounted at the rear of the semitrailer below the loading ramps (43), are used to adjust ramp span width, check
platform heights, and operate the under deck mounted suspension isolation valves. The crowbar has three permanently
marked dimension lines used to check platform height.
BEACON WARNING LIGHT (47).
The beacon warning light (47) is mounted on the vehicular bar lamp and is on
