2-13. OPERATION OF AUXILIARY EQUIPMENT-Continued.
Bilge pump, motor, and support assembly.
A bilge pump with motor and support assembly will be installed on the hull floor in the hydraulics
compartment with the deep water fording kit. The pump is used to remove water which might
enter the compartment during fording. The discharge of the pump goes through the bilge pump
hose to an outlet adapter mounted on the right side of the personnel compartment. The hose and
nozzle assembly can be attached to the outlet adapter to wash down the vehicle after fording.
A toggle switch (1) and indicator lamp (2) for operating bilge pump are located on the accessories
A relay, which is activated by the toggle switch, controls the pump motor. A circuit breaker
provides overload protection for the pump circuit. The switch and relay coil circuit is protected by
a circuit breaker in the accessories panel.
Ventilating blower housing and boom foot drains. A sealing plate fits into and seals the ventilating
blower airduct housing. Hose shutoff clamps are used to cut off water flow from the ventilating blower
airduct housing and boom foot drains.
Fire extinguisher system. Seven rubber fire extinguisher nozzle caps stop water and contaminants
from entering the extinguisher system. These caps are not sealed and can be removed from the
nozzles if the system is needed during fording.
