Question Torque on R14 Viking travel Trailer (Solved)

Hi

I have a 14R Viking Travel Trailer 2012. The rims are Dextar and say maxium torque should be 75 lbs. Viking manual says 95 lbs yet in talking to them in person they say 75 lbs and my dealer says 100 lbs.

Looking for a answer.

Thanks

I would still use the torque values in the pdf file. With them being steel, you just need to torque them after about 50 miles and then every once in a while after that. Alum wheels are a pain to finally get them torqued. Usually takes 3 or 4 times with 50-75 miles between torques. After they are once seated, I only check them before we go on a long trip.

Will a full size mattress fit where the dining booth is when made into a bed?

kathy09 - In a 14R when the table is converted to a bed, it is the perfect size for a futon mattress from Walmart. Also full size sheets does the trick and fit very well.
