Drycleaning solvent, P-D-680, used to clean parts is potentially
dangerous to personnel and property. Wear chemical resistant gloves
when using solvents, and avoid repeated or prolonged skin contact. Do
not use near open flame or excessive heat. Flash point of solvent is 100
degrees F to 138 degrees F (38 degrees C to 59 degrees C).
(8) Clean all external metal surfaces of the trailer and van body with cleaning solvent or by steam cleaning.
Dry thoroughly after washing and cleaning.
Do not use cleaning solvent on rubber tires and electrical insulation. It is
highly destructive to these items. Protect all electrical components from
steam cleaning by sealing opening with pressure sensitive tape.
(9) If the trailer or van shows evidence of rust or corrosion, clean it by wire brushing, buffing, sanding, or
scraping. After removing rust or corrosion, wipe the area with a lint-free cloth moistened in cleaning solvent.
d. Preservatives. The major parts of the water purification unit are made of nonferrous metals and need not be
protected against rust, however, a light coat of oil or permanent type corrosion preventive shall be sprayed or painted on
the shafts, exposed gears, and threaded areas. Paint all surfaces where paint film has been removed. For general
painting instructions, see TM 5-618. Disassemble and clean the filter elements with potable water; thoroughly dry,
preserve and package each filter element separately in accordance with Specification MIL-P-116, Method 1A-15.
