Unsecured battery box covers can damage your vehicle and even seriously injure you or your fellow Soldiers if your Stryker’s involved in a rollover accident.
The battery box cover and batteries will fly around the crew compartment if the cover isn’t tightened down. That’ll cause expensive damage-and maybe seriously injure you and your fellow Soldiers!
Take a minute during Before PMCS to check the battery box cover. If it’s latched good and tight, you’re ready for your mission. If the battery box cover can’t be secured because of damage to the cover or latches, tell your mechanic right away.
