SECTION III. PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
1-8. After the shelter has been erected, the operator personnel will unbolt selected items of equipment. These items will
be relocated to preselected positions on the expanded side of the shelter. (See para., 1-7c.,d.) The selected items, when
moved, will not be secured (bolted) in place. This allows the shop personnel a certain flexibility in the event long or bulky

unit weighs approximately 270 pounds. Trying to move or lift an ECU without help can cause
