SIDE BOARDS AND STAKES
The side panels (1) and rear panels (2) are used to contain bulk cargo such as bags of grain
Installed in sill holes between the stakes (3 and 4).
Rear (panel splice) stake (3) and corner stakes (4) are installed in sill holes to hold panels
(L12 and R12) in place.
Cross chains (5) aid in supporting side panels (1) to contain bulk cargo.
Strap (7) is used to retain larger panels (1 and 2) in stowage rack (8) when not in use. Stak es
(3 and 4) and smaller panels can be stowed within the bulkhead (6) when not in use.
Panel securing strap is wrapped around panels and rack. Do not
attach strap ends to deck tie-downs.
Additional information pertaining to side boards and stakes is
located in Paragraphs 2-7 and 2-8.
Storage rack with panels may be detached from trailer deck,
forklifted off trailer, and stored when not required for mission.
Make sure all hardware for mounting and strapping are with
rack when stored separately from the trailer. All side/rear rack
components may be stored/strapped with rack and tagged with
trailer serial number if not required for the mission.
During snow or freezing conditions, cover bulkhead storage
area and storage rack with a tarp and secure with bungee
cords. This will help prevent the stored components from
freezing together. See AAL List, Table E-1, Page E-4 for Tarps.
There are six (6) long stakes with metal loops at the top for
attachment of cross chain hooks. The two (2) rear corner stakes
must have their loops facing the inside.
