Dear Sergeant Blade,
We have an aircraft maintenance trailer and are having problems finding repair parts in FED LOG. The trailer, NSN 1730-00-435-7818, has a terminal acquisition advice code (AAC) of V and was replaced by NSN 1730-01-086-1653. That NSN is also terminal. The trailers are required according to our unit’s MTOE. Can you help with parts? Or is there a suitable replacement aircraft trailer available?
The TMs that cover your trailers are TM 55-1730-224- 13&P, Airmobile Aircraft Maintenance Trailer
, NSN 1730- 00-435-7818 (Sept 84) and TM 1-1730-227-13&P, Standard Aircraft Maintenance Trailer
, NSN 1730-01-086-1653 (Jul 09).
As you stated, there are no repair parts available for those trailers. So you’ll need to order a substitute trailer instead. The replacement is ground handling trailer, NSN 1740-01-542-1099. Get ready for sticker shock, though. The trailer costs a little over $11K. The manuals have limited repair parts and some of the parts interchange between trailers.
