Heads up! There’s an update to WP 0020 of TM 9-6140-200-13, Operator and Field Maintenance for Automotive Lead-Acid Storage Batteries (May 11). WP 0020 tells you to see Para 8-20 in AR 750-1 for current policy. However, the latest version of AR 750-1, Army Materiel Maintenance Policy (Feb 23), replaces Para 8-20 with Para 14-21.
Make a note that WP 0020 should now tell you to see Para 14-21 in AR 750-1 for current policy.
TACOM will correct WP 0020 in a future TM update.
