CARGO BED COVER (CBC), TYPE IV, 5 T CARGO TRUCK, MTV, AND MTV TRAILER
LOWERING THE CBC ONTO THE VEHICLE BED
Once the mounting plate assembly (1) has been completely installed on the bottom of the Cargo Bed
Cover (2), the CBC can be carefully lowered onto the vehicle bed (3).
To install the CBC and mounting plate combination on the vehicle bed of the MTV Trailer, lift the CBC off
the shipping pallet using the hoisting sling (4) and slowly lower it into position on the bed of the MTV
Trailer. Lower the CBC/mounting plate combination until it is just above the surface of the vehicle bed.
Align the hole (5) in the vertical portion of each gusset plate (6) with the slotted hole (7) in the vertical
trailer support (8) at the front of the trailer bed. Once the holes (5) on both gusset plates (6) are aligned
properly and the vertical portion of the gusset plates (6) contact the vertical trailer supports (8) on each
side of the trailer, lower the CBC until it completely rests on the trailer bed.
Install one 7 inch bolt (9) and flat washer (10) through slotted holes (7) in the vertical trailer support (8)
and then through each gusset plate (6). Install a flat washer (10) through the hole (5) in the gusset plate
(6) and through both slotted holes (7) in the vertical trailer support (8). Install a flat washer (10) and
locknut (11) on the end of the 7 inch bolt and hand tighten. Make sure there are no gaps between the
gusset plate (6) and the vertical trailer support (8). Do not tighten the hardware securely at this time.
Sandbags or other weight
may be used on along the
front edge of the CBC roof in
order to level the unit during
lifting and lowering.
