same manner as the interior bay above except as noted below.
The folded ramp section must not be unfolded unless mated to an interior bay. The
ramp hydraulic operation may be tested in its road position by raising the ramp to
approximately 30°, then lowering to folded position.
Operate in full intended manner to insure trouble free performance, proper adjustment and
freedom from broken or badly worn parts.
