Quick checks generate results.

A few quick checks on your MLRS generator can generate powerful results during operations.

Check that the voltage regulator is tightly screwed on the generator. Only two screws hold the regulator in place. If they work loose, the regulator can come completely off or shake so much its electrical connection to the generator becomes shaky. Then you have electrical problems.

Push down on the rear secondary generator belt. If it gives more than l/4 inch, it may be too loose and could start slipping. That could cause electrical problems. Tell your mechanic so he can tighten the belts.

Make sure the pigtail on the back of the generator is plugged in tightly. If it works loose, once again you have electrical problems. Do all three checks at least weekly during PMCS.
