Lugnut size and tq?

Does anyone know what the lugnut size and tq values are by chance? Bring a tq wrench with me and don't want to bring a whole tool kit with my on my flight to pickup our mh next week.

Much appreciated!

If you're thinking of changing a flat tire - don't. Those tires are very heavy and you wont have a spare anyways. Best to have good roadside insurance. Your insurance company may provide it as part of your motorhome insurance. Others include AAA, Coachnet, Good Sam, etc. Also, I think Forest River may include one year of roadside insurance when you buy one of their new rigs. Ask your dealer.

Not intending to change the tires, just want to make sure everything is snug - The coach only has 200 miles on it, so don't want any surprises. With the horror stories I've read on here - I'd rather be safe than sorry double checking everything as important as that.

Where are you going to pick it up? And where are you taking it to?
I'd ask my dealer to check air pressure and torque. And watch him do it.

From Michigan to Maryland. I plan to have a bunch of tools on me, I was just going to check everything myself. I was just trying to gather information ahead of time and be prepared before I fly out.

The tires I was planning on hitting the scales when we left and adjust as necessary.

I don't have my books with me. They give you a ton of literature, and even one about the tires. I recall seeing air pressure charts but I don't recall if they showed torque, but it may be in one of the other many documents you'll receive. If all else fails, ask the dealer what the torque should be. He should know if its also a service center. It's getting cold in Michigan. We're maybe heading from Colorado to Minnesota on Monday. This will be our first voyage with the 340KP. It drives nice, just floats over the roads. You'll like it.


You might consider camping on his lot for a day or two to test everything out. And I mean EVERYTHING! We did that and found a ton of things to fix and add. Most folks I've talked to wished they had stayed at the dealers lot to get everything squared away before leaving.

Good luck on the trip!

I have a pretty tight timeline, however we have a very extensive test list to systematically run through while at the dealer. Unless it's a major component that has a problem we'll be leaving the next day and fix anything minor ourselves (with parts provided by the dealer - shipped to us).

They are aware of my timeline, so if anything isn't fixable in that timeline (major item) - I'll do what I have to do.

Here's to hoping..

when do you head out to pick it up? We need to hook up as I live very close to you.

Why not ask your dealer??
Your bringing a Tq. wrench on an airplane?? Don't think that's allowed. Better check with TSA.
