TM 5-4210-233-14&P-1 2-14.  AERIAL LADDER SET-UP - Continued f. Operating Aerial Discharge. (1) Refer  to  paragraph  2-13  for  appropriate  pump  setup  instructions  (pumping  from  draft,  pumping from hydrant or in relay, pumping from water tank). (2) With the engine at idle speed, select PUMP mode with ELECTRIC PUMP SHIFT switch on cab dashboard. (3) Depress the brake pedal and shift the truck transmission into D (drive). CAUTION Do not put the truck transmission selector lever into R (reverse) position.  Damage to the water pump may result. NOTE If the green OK TO PUMP light does not illuminate, or a grinding noise  occurs,  move  the  transmission  selector  lever  back  to  N (neutral)   position;   pause   for   several   seconds   and   move   the selector to D (drive) position. (4) When pump is engaged, truck speedometer should indicate approximately 18 MPH. (5) Open  AERIAL  DISCHARGE  valve  on  pump  operator's  panel  and  set  AERIAL  DISCHARGE OPEN/CLOSED switch on aerial platform to OPEN. (6) Turn  the  RELIEF  VALVE  lever  to  the  ON  position  and  adjust  knob  to  obtain  desired  discharge pressure. CAUTION Monitor   engine   coolant   temperature.      if   the   temperature   ex- ceeds 21 0 deg.  F (99 deg.  C), or the alarm sounds, open the ENGINE  COOLER  control  valve  gradually  until  the  tempera- ture stabilizies at 200 deg.  F (93 deg.  C).  Failure to heed this caution my cause engine damage. Do   not   attempt   to   pump   more   water   than   is   available   from hydrant   or   relaying   pumper.      Always   make   sure   compound- gauge   reading   stays   above   zero.      Some   fire   departments operate at a minimum suction pressure of 10 psi (69 kPa) when pumping  from  hydrant  or  relay  to  prevent  a  soft  suction  hose from collapsing. 2-58
