Lug nut covers

I was reading a sticker on the door about tightening the lug nuts every trip. How does everyone get the lug nut covers off?

Your lug nuts are the five chrome nuts on your tires rim. Should be right there staring you in the face. If your camper is like mine, get yourself a 13/16 deep well socket, 1/2 inch drive, a small extension, attached to a torque wrench set at 65 foot pounds.

Our are not chrome, they have aluminum covers that do not come off. I used the wrong size socket ( 1 size too big) and the aluminum covers are loose now. About every 3 months the DW will check one and tell me the lug nut is loose. I keeping telling her buttons are not toys.

Mine are a chrome covering over the metal. I broke a deep well socket tightening up one last season. I have one loose lug nut too. I went to Sears and purchased a 6 point socket. No more problems.

Wondering if similar to ours with a plastic cap over the lug nuts??? You simply pry the cap off with a flat blade screw driver.Click image for larger version
