V. Daily inspection - classes A and D
To test hook-up

Place the transmission in reverse and then partially release the clutch to move the power unit backward in a short, sharp motion. This is known as “hitting the pin.”

Depress the clutch and place the transmission in the lowest forward gear. If the vehicle is equipped with a trailer hand control, pull it down to set trailer brakes to keep the unit from rolling. If there is no hand control, set the trailer parking brake.

Try to pull forward against the pin.
