Returning Used Sensors to RSFWSU (cont) Write the FedEx tracking number on the shipping form. This is very important in case the parts shipment is misrouted or lost. Make a copy of the completed form for your records Package old sensor(s) in boxes with completed shipping form and use return shipping label provided. Ship to RSFWSU.
