CARGO BED COVER (CBC), TYPE IV, 5 T CARGO TRUCK, MTV, AND MTV TRAILER
OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
Upon accessing the rear door opening (1) of the CBC, locate the winch assembly (2) which is just inside
the left side of the door opening (1).
If it is not already in position, install the ratchet handle (3) by engaging the male portion (4) of the handle
with the female socket (5) located just inside the round opening (6) in the winch cover (7).
Move the lever (8) on the back of the ratchet handle (3) to the right so that the handle engages positively
when turned in a clockwise direction.
Do not raise the upper portion of the CBC past the warning mark on the
side wall of the CBC. Raising the upper portion beyond this mark will
cause undue stress to the cables and may cause the cables to snap and
the upper section of the CBC to drop. Failure to stop at the warning mark
when extending the CBC may result in severe injury.
Begin turning the ratchet handle (3) in a clockwise direction until the upper extendable section (9) of the
CBC begins to rise. Continue to raise the upper portion of the CBC until the warning mark line (10) is
visible on the side wall of the CBC just to the right of the winch assembly (2).
As soon as the warning mark (10) is visible, stop turning the ratchet handle. Leave the ratchet handle (3)
in place on the winch.
When the upper section has been raised to the stenciled warning mark (10), locate the lifting/locking
assembly (11) nearest the winch which is in its stowed position on the underside of the roof (12).
