Mechanics, on Pages 24-25 in PS 778 (Jan 17), we told you about the aviation ground power unit (AGPU) protective cover, its care and maintenance, installation instructions and warnings. Back then, the information had not been published in TM 1-1730-229-13 (Jan 17).  
A few months later (Apr 17), the AGPU maintenance instructions were added to the TM, and the cover was assigned NSN 5340-01-663-8273.  Be sure to read and heed the relevant TM pages HERE, paying particular attention to the warnings and cautions.
