Trailer wheel torque

I am getting ready to hit the road with my new 26BH. Where is the wheel torque specification located so I can check the torque before I leave? Or, what is the normal specification?

It's the normal spec for whatever lug diameter and wheel material. My steel wheel Roo is 90lbf (as I recall). Over half my lug nuts were loose so checking them is prudent.

Lug nut torque.

If you have aluminum wheels, your torque is probably 100 ft/pds. Do not use a rattle gun to put the lugs on, use a torque wrench.
The actual torque is based on wheel type, and size of lugs.

Ditto to the sticker that noted the torque spec and torque pattern. Get a proper torque wrench and socket.
