Flagstaff 206ST lug nut torque recommendation?

Does anyone know the proper lug nut torque for a Flagstaff 206ST (year 2014)?
  • The Forest River manual says lug nuts 85 to 95 ft/lbs.
  • The Forest River manual also says lug "bolts" (steel) 70 to 75 ft/lbs. (aluminum 90 to 95 ft/lbs--I'm assuming my wheels are steel)
  • The AL-KO axle manual says 85 to 95 ft/lbs.
I went with the axle manual and torqued to 90 ft/lbs. before a trip this past weekend. While at the park, I noticed a sticker on the camper frame that says "this unit has been torqued to 75 ft. lbs"

Is that the correct number then? This is confusing!

Do you know what size wheels they are? Aluminum or steel? And what size tires (and load range)?

They are 14 inch steel. Sorry, forgot to get the tire size. Anyway, I've settled for 85 ft. lbs. after talking to two dealers. No one had an exact number.

I'm a big fan of putting white grease on the lugs. Doesn't dry out quickly and might prevent a stuck nut.
