2-49. OPERATING TRUCK IN DESERT ENVIRONMENT.
FM 90-3 contains detailed instructions for living and

Principles for operating in extreme heat and extreme dust, sand or mud
apply to desert environment (Para 2-46 through 2-48).
Temperatures may change as much as 70 degrees F (21 degrees C) between
day and night. These changes may damage equipment if truck is not

care should be taken when filling fuel tank and fluid reservoirs to prevent
overflow when temperatures change.
