Other people have covered most of this; my additional advice is to download
the RL01/RL02 manual, and read it thoroughly. It covers the process on how to
open an un-powered RL0x drive (it's not obvious/trivial), and how to lock the
heads for moving the drive.

True; stack all the stuff along the front wall of the truck enclosure, and
use shipping straps, etc, liberally.
