90 on Aluminum wheels, 100 foot pounds on steel wheels. Just make sure you have a tool that will break them loose if you have a flat and need to change one.

Does it make a difference on axle size, wheel size or weight of trailer?

My aluminum wheels came with specific instructions to torque and retorque after 50 miles to 100 ftlbs for 1/2" wheel studs (120 ftlb for 9/16" studs).

The Herkbrary keeps growing; thanks to all of you.

I just "regurgitate it back up to feed the chicks" when needed.



Ugh, what a picture! and before breakfast too.

Well, pushing off for the weekend!
Play nice everyone.

Herk,

I had a copy of this in my books that came with my PUP, but let them go when I traded up to my TT. I have also added this info to my files that are growing, on my laptop. Stay safe,

The entire scanned manual is posted in the FAQ section now.
A labor of love, I hope the legal beagles let me keep it there.
Download a copy while you can
