package provide the data and procedures to be used by the Operator when uncoupling the trailer from
the towing vehicle.
Trailer wheels must be chocked before coupling, uncoupling, or when trailer is
parked. Trailer wheels may roll if they are not chocked. Failure to comply
may result in serious injury or death to personnel or damage to equipment.
Perform towing vehicle operating procedures to prepare towing vehicle for uncoupling. Procedures
include towing vehicle engine shutdown and putting towing vehicle in park.
