TM 5-4210-220-12 1-9 LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS.  - Continued m. Air System. (1) The  air  system  comprises  a  main-engine-driven  compressor,  an  air  drier  and  four  reservoirs  in  addition, valves  and  hoses  for  supply  and  control  of  the  truck  and  firefighting  equipment  are  included,  (see  fig.  1-13).    The reservoirs are filled successively This is achieved with the pressure protection valves. (2) The primary reservoir supplies air to the rear brakes, engine throttle and firefighting system.  The primary reservoir is filled and pressurized before the other reservoirs.  The air socket may be used to pressurize the primary air system from a shop supply in the event of system overhaul. (3) The fast reservoir is used to store air when the engine is shut down.  When the ignition is off, the reservoir is totally isolated.  When the ignition is switched on, the air starter valve opens, and the primary reservoir is pressurized. This allows the truck to be driven without waiting for the primary tank to be charged by the compressor. (4) The secondary reservoir is filled after the primary reservoir is pressurized.  The secondary circuit supplies air to the front brakes, parking brake release, air horns, wipers, washers, fan, and shutter. (5) The emergency reservoir is filled after the primary reservoir is pressurized.  The emergency reservoir only supplies the emergency parking brake release system. (6) The primary, secondary, and emergency systems are fitted with pressure gages which are located in the cab.  Audiovisual alarm lamps indicate when the pressure is low.  Manual draincocks are fitted to each reservoir.
