COUPLING TRAILER TO TOWING VEHICLE.
Ensure that towing vehicle and trailer are on level ground before coupling.
Apply trailer handbrakes.
Make sure that the weight of the trailer is on the front support leg before raising rear stabilizer. Fail-
ure to follow this warning may cause trailer to tip, resulting in serious injury to personnel or dam-
age to equipment.
Fully retract rear stabilizers. Then remove and stow rear stabilizers on the front of the cargo body.
Drawbar is heavy - up to 420 lb (190.5 kg) loaded tongue weight. Use front stabilizer crank to raise
and lower trailer drawbar. If support leg assembly is inoperative, remove load from trailer or use
four or more persons to lift drawbar. Failure to follow this warning may result in serious personnel
injury or equipment damage.
When operating the crank handle, do not force the front stabilizer beyond the normal operating
range, or permanent damage may occur.
Use front stabilizer crank to raise trailer drawbar until lunette ring is higher than towing vehicle pintle hook.
Remove the safety pin (1) from the pintle hitch (2) on the towing vehicle.
