SECTION I. INITIAL SHOP EXPANSION
2-1. Placement of Rotor Shop. The Rotor Shop should be located with power cable length, tactical deployment,
exhaust/inlet of ECUs and phasing between related shops kept in mind. The shops power entry panel, next to the
personnel entrance door, should be facing toward the power source and power distribution panel.
2-2. Shelter Expansion
a. Remove shop storage chest, located on fixed sidewall near ceiling at cargo entrance door, from mounting
bracket for easy access to hardware and tools.
b. Observe shelter expansion instructions in TM 10-5411-201-14 until two handles of solar bar are extended
and hinged roof is slid outward. Continue shelter expansion observing supplemental expansion instructions found
c. Supplemental Expansion Instructions.
When all equipment and materiel is stored on the stationary side of
the shelter, the limited floor space presents an obstacle to operating
personnel. This is most critical during the raising and lowering of the
roof panel. Failure to observe supplemental expansion instructions
could result in personnel inside the shelter becoming trapped between
the roof panel and equipment. Serious injury to personnel could result.
1. Two personnel, outside the shelter, must lift
the roof panel (1) far enough to allow two people inside
to release the support struts (2), extend them to full
length and insert quick-release pins (3).
