TM 5-4210-233-14&P-1 SECTION IV. OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS 2-19.  OPERATION IN EXTREME COLD a. After firefighting, remember to drain residual water from all piping as detailed. b. Be sure that all procedures and lubrication recommendations to maintain the vehicle operational in cold weather are followed. WARNING Doors and access panels may freeze shut and walking surfaces become slippery and hazardous from formation of ice in freezing weather.  Be sure that all ice is removed as quickly as possible. 2-20.  OPERATING IN EXTREME HEAT a. When   operating   in   a   very   hot   environment,   pay   extra   attention   to   the   engine   and   transmission temperature  and  oil  pressure  gauges.    Open  ENGINE  COOLER  valve  handle  located  above  PRIMER valve handle on pump panel when pumping. b. Be  sure  that  lubricant  and  coolant  recommendations  for  operation  under  extreme  heat  conditions  are followed. 2-21.  OPERATION IN AREAS WITH SALT AIR AND MIST a. In areas where salt air and sea spray are common, measures must be taken to protect the vehicle from corrosion.    Use  wax  and/or  other  surface  protection  agents  frequently  on  painted  and  chrome  plated surfaces.  Coat all other exposed metallic surfaces with protective oil as necessary. b. If  salt  water  is  used  for  firefighting,  the  firefighting  system,  including  ail  hoses  used,  should  be  flushed with potable water on return to base. CAUTION The pump is designed for use with fresh water.  Therefore, if salt water  is  used,  the  pump  must  be  flushed  with  fresh  water  to prevent corrosion of pump components. 2-22.  OPERATION IN SNOW a. Operating  in  areas  with  heavy  snowfall  can  cause  problems  unless  walkways,  hose  beds,  and  control equipment are continuously cleared of snow.  If not cleared frequently, the equipment including exposed controls may become difficult to operate. b. When driving through deep snow or snow banks, engage the interaxle differential lock. 2-71
