125 ft/lbs. Very important to use a torque wrench.




This will help you better I hope it comes up for you. Good Luck

That's way different then the Manual that came with my OB, it says 50 lbs. for the lugs.

Thanks for the valuable information.

My practice has been to check TP and lug nut torque to 100 ft-lbs prior to every trip. I have never seen any lugs loose.

I will now revise my practive to torques to 120 ft-lbs. prior to everyt trip. My goal is to never become an accident statistic and this will help me attain that goal.

4campers supplied the link in another thread and someone else suggested it be pinned. I used the quote feature and started a new thread and pinned it. Easy for me, valuable for all,
Thanks 4campers.

Anyone know off hand what size the lug nuts are? The keystone info says 7/8 or 13/16. I have a torque wrench on the way, and have no idea what socket to get. :dunno:

I would think that the lugnut torque will be different on the aluminum rims also, opposed to the steel rims...............

You would think so... I have no idea. Just wondering what size socket to get tomorrow. Someone said that there are two different sizes for the wheel and the spare, and I woudl love to just go buy one deep well for each. BTW... ANYONE WATCHING THIS MEMPHIS KU GAME?

The torque values are 110-120 or 140-150(Cambridge) according to the Keystone manual, page 21. There is no differentiation between steel and aluminum wheels. The incremental torque is 55-60 and 90-100 ft lbs, respectively. The difference is for 1/2' or 5/8" thread lugs. Also, a 4" or 6" socket extension for your torque wrench really is beneficial.

The PDF link in #1 is broken.  Video on lug torque from Keystone's site give the same values as Bob's post above.
