    Wheel torque

    Iím seeing in the Grand Design manual a three step YouTube tightening sequence ending in 90-120 ft lbs

    What the variance and do I need to follow all three steps if wheels have not been removed?

    Wheel torque

    I believe that the 90 would be a generic number for steel wheels if so equipped or if you put your steel spare on vs the aluminum
    The aluminum would take the higher torque
    But I am just guessing

    It's based off stud size as well. Best bet is to figure out which axles you have and lookup the torque value from the axle manufacturer.

    If wheels have NOT been removed, then sequencing wheel stud torque is not neccessary.

    The Dexter axle manual for our RV (1/2 in studs, 15 in wheels) states torque to 100 - 120 ft lbs. The Dexter manual elsewhere states not to exceed 120 ft lbs for 1/2 in studs.

    I torque to 110 ft lbs.

    Torque specs are based on lug size. Wheel type would not matter.
