Wheel nuts torque pressure.

I bought a 2017 Prime Time Crusader 20 RL and have no documentation for it.

I would like to know to which pressure the wheel nuts should be torqued.

The wheels have 6 studs of about an inch in diameter, and the tires are ST225/75 R15D

Thanks

The torque specs for your RV are going to depend on whether you have flange or cone nuts, but I'm guessing you likely have flange nuts based on your wheel size.

Since this is a Forest River product and they usually use Lippert frames, you can find the torque specs in the link below. But first confirm your RV frame manufacturer and consult their website for that information, if it's not a Lippert frame.

I keep a downloaded copy of this and other Lippert documents on my notebook system that I take everywhere, so I always have it while on the road with my RV, just in case.

Thank-you both for help.

I have a Lippert frame with cone nuts.

Have a safe camping trip.

Wheel nut torque

I have a 2013 Crusader with 6 lug nuts and when new there was a tag on the side that said to torgue at 100ft-lbs. The tag has since been removed but when my mobile RV guy does my bearings he always torques at 100ft-lbs. When I get new tires at Schwab they always torque at 100ft-lbs.
