Figure 3-1. Lifting and Loading Shelter.
Some procedures require the addition of dunnage to truck bed or the attachment of
tiedown eyes to truck before loading shelter onto truck. Refer to technical manual for
type of truck being used.
Lower truck tailgate and make sure all tools and equipment have been removed from truck bed.
Position one person at free end of each rope to guide shelter into place.
Lift shelter to a position high enough to clear truck bed.
Back truck into position under shelter.
To avoid injury to personnel, all personnel must remain clear of truck while shelter is
being lowered into place.
With one person at each rope, guide shelter into position so that it is aligned above truck bed, and
maintain that position while lowering shelter into place on truck bed.
