PREPARATION FOR STORAGE OR SHIPMENT -- CONTINUED
CARE OF EQUIPMENT IN ADMINISTRATIVE STORAGE
After equipment has been placed in administrative storage, suspend all regularly scheduled preventive maintenance
services and inspect and exercise as specified herein. Do not reduce Prescribed Load List.
(1) Vehicle to be prepared for administrative storage must be given an administrative technical inspection and
processed as prescribed on DD Form 1397. The results of the inspection and classification will be entered on DA
(2) If vehicle is not shipped or issued upon expiration of the administrative storage period, process as applicable
in accordance with ATPD--2229 Preparation For Storage And Shipment Of Recovery Vehicle, Full--Tracked, Heavy,
(3) If vehicle to be shipped will reach its destination within the administrative storage period, it need not be repro-
cessed when removed from storage, unless necessary because of anticipated in--transit weather conditions.
(4) Inspection will usually be visual and must consist of at least a walk--around examination of all equipment to
observe any deficiencies that may have occurred. Inspect equipment in open storage weekly and that in covered
storage monthly. Immediately after any severe storm or environmental change, inspect all equipment. The following
are examples of things to look for during visual inspection:
Leaks: coolant, fuel, oil, or hydraulic fluid.
Condition of preservatives, seals and wraps. Seals may develop leaks during storage, during exer-
cise, or shortly thereafter. If leaking continues, refer to the repair procedures in this manual or
notify support maintenance.
Corrosion or other deterioration.
Missing or damaged parts.
Water in compartments.
Any other readily recognizable shortcomings or deficiencies.
RECEIPT FOR STORAGE
When received for storage and already processed for domestic shipment by the manufacturer as indicated on DD
Form 1397, the vehicle will not be reprocessed unless inspection performed on receipt of materiel reveals corrosion,
Upon receipt from manufacturing facilities, if the processing data on the tag indicates that preservation has been ren-
dered ineffective by operation or by freight shipping damage, completely process the vehicle in accordance with
ATPD--2229, Preparation For Storage And Shipment Of Recovery Vehicle, Full--Tracked, Heavy, M88A2.
Prepare SF Form 364 for all shipments received in a damaged or otherwise unsatisfactory condition due to deficien-
cies in preservation, packaging, marking, handling, loading and for apparently excessive preservation.
To assure utilization of all assigned materiel, rotate items in accordance with any rotational plan that will keep equip-
ment in operational condition and reduce maintenance effort.
REMOVAL FROM ADMINISTRATIVE STORAGE
Remove preservative materials. Perform the next scheduled preventive maintenance service and prepare equipment
for service as outlined in TM 9--2350--292--10 and in accordance with instructions on DD Form 1397.
