Hub cap lug nuts - Fake: 2012 Georgetown 360

I have a 2012 Georgetown 360 motor home and have lost 2 of the fake 1 1/4" lug nuts that hold the front hub caps on. These are threaded, not just press-on caps that go over real lug nuts. Does anyone know where I can get replacements? Camping World just has caps, and an internet search didn't turn up anything.

Flying J truck stop may have them. I have seen the regular cap covers there.
Or you can call Forest River Parts and ask.

Did you try and remove them and damaged them?
Did you get the special tool with your motorhome to remove them?

It is the large silver T handle in the draw.

Thanks Gentleman for the thread here. Those fake lug nuts though threaded are just a snap in being held in place by retention tabs, at least on my Lexington it is. When our MH was delivered someone appartently hit the fence backing down my driveway. I had a fit when I saw the nut missing, found it when mowing the grass, no harm done. Anyways, thanks for the picture Iggy, I didn't receive a T-handle with our home, will have to pick one up.

Glad this was posted. I lost one on my GT 378TS and was wondering where I could get one.

That tool came with the motorhome but you can also buy something like this at the Flying J or other truck stops that have stores. I think is better for removing caps.
Less damage.

You can get the original equipment fake lug nuts from Kaper II, their phone number is 360-423-4404. I ordered 3 after losing one on the way to Florida In January.


They call it a lug nut cover/jam nut combo. and the part number for my 2011 Georgetown is L-225. Can't remember how much they cost, around $7 ea, I think. The new ones are identical to the originals. These screw on and will replace either the ones held on by tabs or the screw on ones.

You can email them at Info@Kaper2.com. Hope this helps.

I'm pretty sure the 22.5" rim uses part # L513.
I KNOW it does not use part # L196

If/WHEN we need another one I think I'll call them.

Once again... the knowledge is passed on!

Thanks to the people who have posted info in this thread! 1) I wondered what that "tool" was in the box, I received from the dealer with my coach. No one ever went over those items with me. And I didn't see them until after I took the coach home.
AND last time I picked it up after warranty work, I noticed on of the covers looked like it had been beat on with a hammer! Now I know where to get a replacement.. and a couple of spares. I like the look of that other tool too! Probably less damage when removing the covers.
