RV Wheel Torque Levels and some helpful links

Recommended Posts

 Information that might help motor home owners find a baseline for the proper torque level specifications for different class chassis used for the different class sized units.

Torque levels vary considerably by class and the size coach in a given class. This tends to cause a point of confusion. This is also an issue for Tow Trailers and 5th.wheel units.

The best information always comes from chassis builders  not the tire shops!

Safe travels to all

Rich.

As Carl noted, it's always interesting and informative to see what Rich will come up with next.  In the 500 pounds of manuals that came with my coach, one is entitled, "Recreational Vehicle Chassis."  It is full of information from Freightliner, some very technical, some above my pay grade and some not pertinent to my coach, but a lot is very useful.  There is a section dedicated to "lubricated" threads and another to "unlubricated" thread.  It gives the torque settings for each size and grade of bolt.
