PREPARATION FOR USE
Wheels chocked (WP 0011 00).
Trailer coupled (WP 0009 00).
Towing vehicle Operator manual
The trailer must be properly prepared before each use. The paragraphs in this work package provide the
data and procedures to be used by the Operator when preparing the trailer for use. Items covered
include towing vehicle mirror adjustment and operation in off-road conditions.
Increased length of towing vehicle and trailer combination will affect left and
right mirror adjustment in towing vehicle. Mirrors must be adjusted prior to
operating towing vehicle. Failure to comply may result in injury to personnel
or damage to equipment.
Adjust towing vehicle left and right mirrors for best visibility during backing and passing operations
of towing vehicle and trailer combination.
OPERATION IN OFF-ROAD CONDITIONS
Heavy objects/loads, such as tool boxes and heavy parts, must always be
positioned as low as possible in the trailer with the weight distributed as
equally as possible between left and right sides of trailer. Poor weight
distribution decreases the stability of the trailer and will increase the
likelihood of a rollover. Failure to comply may result in serious injury or death
