A muddy reminder.
Thick, sticky mud is a real hazard for your M88A1 recovery vehicle's splash guard fenders, drivers.
As your vehicle plows along, the tracks throw gobs of mud against the fenders. Enough of that mud will damage or break the hinges that fasten the fenders to the hull. Then your unit pays to replace the fenders.
Before traveling over muddy terrain, remove the two screws that hold each of the fenders in place. The fenders can then swing freely on their hinges, lessening the impact of the mud.
Reinstall the screws when you reach your destination or when mud is no longer a problem. The fenders protect Soldiers and other vehicles from rocks thrown by the tracks.
