Does your unit have any M969A3 fuel tankers? If so, listen up!

TM 9-2330-330-23P (Dec 15) doesn’t show an illustration for the door bumpers on the hose reel cabinet doors and cabinet frame, and it should. The bumpers will be added to the TM soon.

Here’s a visual of a door bumper installed, just above a hose reel door, on the cabinet frame.

through hole to install

They’re an easy install; just pull the bumper into the hole from the back. Jot this down until the TM is updated.
