4-117. PREPARATION PROCEDURES
These procedures apply to both Level A and Level B.
The semitrailer weldment and BII mounted on the semitrailer require very little
surface preparation since many of the surfaces are painted. However, due to
extensive use and handling, some paint chipping will occur, allowing rust and/or
corrosion to start. All BII and painted surfaces of the semitrailer must be
thoroughly cleaned to remove all rust and corrosion, and touch-up paint applied as
needed to restore surface protection.
a. Remove all rust and corrosion from semitrailer weldment surfaces and trailer-mounted BII, using a wire brush
b. Thoroughly wash semitrailer and allow to dry.
Spot paint surface areas where paint has worn or chipped off.
d. Perform semiannual lubrication of entire semitrailer (para. 3-3).
