TM 9-2320-364-10      2-715 2-48.  OPERATING TRUCK IN MUD, SAND OR SNOW. Before backing truck in mud, sand or snow, mud flaps must be pinned on stowage hook located on mud flap bracket.  If mud flap is not pinned, damage may result. Blowing sand may scratch glass surfaces.  Glass surfaces should remain covered as much as possible in these conditions to prevent scratching. NOTE Driving in mud can degrade truck braking and speed up brake shoe wear.  If braking worsens while operating in mud, dry brakes by driving truck approximately 500 ft. (153 m) with service brakes frequently applied.  This must be done with brake drums totally out of mud so that drying action can take place.  If adequate braking is not restored by drying brakes, notify Unit Maintenance. (1) Leave glass surfaces covered if not needed for operations.  Extra care should be taken when cleaning glass surfaces to prevent scratching surfaces. NOTE Principles of driving in sand can also be applied to driving in mud. The best time to drive on sand is at night or early morning when sand is damp.  Damp sand gives better traction. (2) Check the air filter restriction indicator (1) often.
