HEAT SHRINKABLE TUBING
Use the heat shrinkable tubing to insulate soldered and crimped electrical connections as follows:
Cut desired length of new heat shrinkable tubing twice the length of the connection to be covered.
Slide the heat shrinkable tubing onto the wire and out of the way before making electrical connection.
After making electrical connection, slide heat shrinkable tubing into place over electrical connection.
DO NOT touch heat shrinkable tubing for at least 30 seconds after heating. Heat
shrinkable tubing is hot and will burn you. Failure to comply may result in death or injury to
personnel. Seek medical attention in the event of an injury.
Hold hot air blow gun 4 to 5 in. (10.2 to 12.7 cm) away from heat shrinkable tubing and apply heat for
approximately 30 seconds. Stop applying heat as soon as heat shrinkable tubing forms to the shape of the

ELECTRICAL GROUND POINTS
Many electrical problems are the result of poor ground connection. You can ensure that ground connections are
good by performing the following steps.
Although battery cable must be connected in order to test electrical circuit voltage,
disconnect battery ground cable from towing vehicle before performing resistance tests or
replacing parts. This will prevent shock and damage to equipment. Failure to comply may
result in death or injury to personnel. Seek medical attention in the event of an injury.
Remove hardware connecting ground cable terminal lug to ground point.
