  40. Site Selection • Ample Space • Firm, well drained • Free of rocks and debris • Level • Sheltered if possible • Accessible

  41. Trailer Placement • Set trailer brakes • Lower landing wheel • Disconnect trailer • Install legs

  42. Vehicle Placement • 20’ from trailer • Level spot • Relatively in line with trailer • Place in PARK • Set hand brake

  43. Unload Trailer • Unload trailer placing tent bags to either side of space where tent will be out of the way. • Identify and sort items

  44. Prep Shelter for Purging • Open purge port • Open SPA vent When using the generator the system will not allow the Main Shelter Breaker to be turned “ON” until a purging cycle is complete. This is a safety feature that does not function while using shore power.

  45. “Sniff” Before turning the 60 amp power breakers on to power-up the shelter, you must check for the presence of flammable/explosive fumes. Assemble the portable gas detector as shown to the right and insert the wand into port in entry door to check for fumes.

  46. Prepare Generator • Open covers and stow • Install main power cable and control line from APU/ECU • Also can be operated from shore power with provided shore power cable in the system.
