I have a 2016 Georgetown 335DS. Can someone advise what the torque setting is on the bolts used in the CHP. I went by a video on YouTube which stated the torque is 65. Well the bolt snapped and I'm now waiting on for a spare from Ford.

I think most of us use german torque, goodntight. I know it isn't very scientific, but have over 6k miles with no issues. Also remember that 65 ft-lbs is a lot of torque for those sized bolts, it was probably 65 in-lbs, just saying.

Replacement bolts can be had at Home Depot/lowes/ACE.

Thanks but got them today from Ford. Didn't want any warranty issues.
