Rockwood Freedom 1610 Lug Nut Question
Could someone tell me where to look for the torque specification for the lug nuts for a Freedom 1610 tent trailer?

In your owner's manual.

And if I had the manual I would never have posted the question.

So let me rephrase.

For someone who does not have the manual, where would they look to find out what the lug nut torque spec is on a Freedom 1610 tent trailer?

What size? Here's a general rule....

7/16-inch diameter 50 to 60 lb-ft;
12mm diameter 70 to 80 lb-ft;
1/2-inch diameter 80 to 90 lb-ft;
5/8-inch diameter 110 to 125 lb-ft

I don't have a 1610, I have the 2318g, so my torque spec might be different. On frame next to the driver side tire I have a sticker that says, this unit has been torqued to 75 foot lbs using the star method. Also my lugnuts are 13/16ths. However reading f5moab post above there seems to be a discrepancy here. With that size lug nut, it would seem mine should have a higher torque spec.

I have 1/2" and I usually do 80 and have had no tires fall off:roflblack:

On my Silverado, with 22mm nuts (little larger than 7/8) the torque is 140 lbs.

But, I also believe some rims might require a different torque!

Same as campfire 75ft/lbs, it's in the manual and on the sticker...and the manual is kinda "generic" for most of the freedom models (at least mine makes mention of multiple models it's not specific to 2318g)

So it's probably a safe bet to use 75, keep checking them too, I had to re torque mine a few times after purchase..

The chart f5mohab graciously provided id referring to the LUG STUD size not the NUT. Follow that chart.
