New Crusader owner

Bought our first fifth wheel. In less than 24 hours we bought the Crusader 260RLD and the 2011 Ford 250 diesel FX4 while on vacation in Florida. Received great trade-in prices and rebates from both dealers. Made two stops on our return trip to Chicago. The wife loves everything except the smaller freezer. Only problem is the the door latch and dead bolt are not lined up correctly. You have to slam the door. Have appointment for next week to get fixed.
Our two sons love the truck.

I have rims like this. My 4-way just fits into the lug nut wells, almost to tight. Just wondering what someone with the same rims use, to remove the lugs? My last question is, do any of you ( Crusader owners ) have toppers for your slides? If so, what do you like or dislike about them?

Socket

Use the correct socket and a breaker bar...the side walls are a little thinner..
Did you not get the grille that fits on the rear bumper? Noticed it was missing in your photo?

Thanks, Crusader! This looks to me like a great idea to keep rain &etc. out of the switch! Would you mind giving me the SKU number at the supplier? They have several different models...
