Send one crewmember up the center of the chassis to deploy the stowed walkways.
The second crewmember is raised on the tail lift to the fixed walkway at the rear of the
vehicle (under the launch frame) to un-strap and deploy the three loose walkways.
Remove the slide frame decking panels from the chassis well at the rear of the crane
and the three panels located under the launch frame along with the tail lift guardrails.
Install the decking panels on the slide frame between the crane and the A-frame.
Make sure the decking panels are in their correct locations.
Release the straps and R clips on the A-frame foldable walkways and lower the
platform to its deployed position using the ladder for control.
Release the rubber catches, and fold out the two small walkways, insert the guard rail
in its location hole.
Release the straps on A-frame vertical ladders and deploy them into position.
