    Default AN/TSQ-217 S/A Electronics Trailer

    Hi- I purchased an AN/TSQ-217 S/A Electronics Trailer at auction. I have searched this forum and searched the www, but to no avail. I have no idea who made this trailer or more importantly details around rebuilding the braking system or axels. If anyone has links to parts or manuals, I would appreciate it. Thanks Seth

    Welcome to Steel Soldiers.
    Trailer base appears to be a M116A3 or A2.
    No data plates anywhere?
    Manual for the M116A2/3 is in the Technical Manual (TM) section.

    Croft Trailer www.crofttrailer.com has the factory parts for the surge brake assembly.
    HydroAct is the Manufacturer

    Dexter for the axles
    Dexter and Redline for the brake parts.

    Dot 5 is the brake fluid used.
    Do not mix with anything else.

    A unique trailer for sure.

    EDIT;
    If you havenít already, inspect the wheel bearings ASAP.
    You never know where the trailers been.
    Most surplus trailers usually need grease, frequently seals and also bearings/races.
    Maintenance wasnít the biggest priority on these.

    Thanks for the info, I will post the trailer plate, but I found it to be unhelpful.

    My coworker was in communications during his Army service. When they were in the field they had generators and mini satellite dishes on them.

    Upon further research it appears it is an M116A3, based on load rating, rather than the A2.

    Thank you so much.

    I had one just like that in the yard a few years ago. Like mentioned it's just typical m116a3 chassis, although I don't remember a dataplate saying so.
    m151a2, m1028s, m59 dump truck, m416, m101a2, m101a3, m104
