Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) are performed to keep the Cargo Bed Cover
(CBC) and its associated equipment in good operating condition. The checks are used to find, correct, or
report problems. PMCS are done every day the CBC is operated, using the PMCS table. Pay attention to
WARNING and CAUTION statements. A WARNING means someone could be hurt. A CAUTION means
equipment could be damaged. Operators are to perform the PMCS tasks, keeping in mind the following
Before you begin using the CBC, do Before PMCS
During use of the CBC, do During PMCS
After using the CBC, do After PMCS
Once a week, do Weekly PMCS if the CBC has been in use
Do Monthly PMCS once a month if the CBC has been in use
If you find something wrong when performing PMCS, fix it using troubleshooting and/or maintenance
The right-hand column of the PMCS table lists conditions that make the CBC not fully mission capable.

on how to use this form, see DA PAM 738-750.
If tools that are required to perform PMCS are not listed in procedures, notify your superior.
Look for signs of trouble. Senses help here. You can feel, smell, hear, or see many problems that can be
eliminated before they get worse. Inspect to see if items are in good condition. Are components correctly
installed and secured? Is any damage to the frame or components visible? Correct any faults or notify unit
