  1. Once a load is secured onto the trailer the operator will connect a 12v DC power source to the trailer using a two conductor wire harness and quick disconnect. The operator would now use a remote control transmitter depressing and holding the “Frame Raise” button causing the main frame to rotate upward to the upright vertical position. This would raise the top cross bar of the main frame up off of the storage saddles located at the forward end of the trailer.

  2. The operator would now depress and hold the main frame “Trolley Rev” button causing the main frame to roll aft on the track extrusions towards the rear of the trailer. Once the main frame is in the desired position the operator would release the button bringing the main frame to a stop.

  3. At this time the operator would relocate the main frame pivot pins from the “Kneel Fwd” position to the “Kneel Aft” position. (The pins are located one on each side of the trailer on the main frame attachment to the block assy’s)

  4. The “Frame Kneel” button is now depressed and held rotating the frame aft and down until it comes to a stop or the button is released. The forward ends of the tarp “D” rings are attached to the quick release hooks. The “Frame Raise” button is now depressed and held rotating the frame up and forward pulling the tarp up to the top of the load.

  5. At this time the operator would relocate the main frame pivot pins from the “Kneel Aft” position to the “Kneel Fwd” position. (The pins are located one on each side of the trailer on the main frame attachment to the block assy’s)

  6. Now the operator may depress and hold the main frame “Trolley Fwd” button. As the main frame moves forward on the track extrusions the tarp will begin to cover and unfurl itself over the load. Once the tarp is in a desired position the operator may release the “Trolley Fwd” button bringing the main frame to a stop. If the tarp needs to be pulled further forward over the front end of the load due to not being able to trolley the frame any further the “Frame Kneel” button may be depressed and held until the tarp is pulled further forward and in a desired position.

  7. A cable on each side of the main frame will now need to be pulled downward releasing the tarp from the quick release hooks.

  8. If the tarp was pulled further forward using the main frame kneeling option the “Frame Raise” button would need to be depressed returning the main frame to a vertical position.

  9. If a second tarp is required then the operator would repeat steps 2 through 8.

  10. The operator would now depress and hold the main frame “Trolley Fwd” button causing the main frame to move forward. Once the main frame is at the traveling/storage position the “Trolley Fwd” button may be released.

  11. The “Frame Kneel” button would be depressed at this time and held until the main frame cross bar rests into the saddles located at the forward end of the trailer. Remove the 12v DC power source from the trailer.
