Torque for Lug Nuts

Good morning everyone.
Can anyone tell me where to find the correct torque settings for the lug nuts on my trailer wheels?

I am going to pull each wheel and grease the wheel bearings, adjust brakes, and so on, and I can't find the lug nut torque anywhere.

Am I missing it? Do they hide it somewhere?

Bill

Just went and checked my trailer, Work & Play. There is a sticker by the door that shows tightening sequence for various sizes. Also says torque varies per wheel type. I torque my 15 inch aluminum wheels to 110 ft lbs. Yours may be different, but that should hold them. My trailer also had a sticker over the fender stating 110 pound torque.

Thanks,
I have the 15" aluminum wheels too.
I will look around some more but I haven't seen anything with that info on it.

Thanks again for the info.

I recall a factory sticker on our camper saying torque the wheels 90 - 110 ft/lbs and recheck after 100 miles. We also have the aluminum wheels.
