Taking delivery on a 22M next week waiting on installation of front and rear swaybars and steering stabilizer. Hope they make for better handling.

Wheel liner removal tool

When we bought our "new to us", we received the entire new owners packet, including the provided tools list and the (never used) tools. The kit did not list nor include a wheel liner removal tool. We talked to several folks, with the consensus being some sort of padded jaw water pump pliers. Unsatisfactory. Looked on line, and could only find 33mm removal tools. Need a 41mm.

Muddled through.

Prowling around a TA truck stop in west Texas a few weeks ago I found the perfect tool, unfortunately, 33mm. BUT, it looked like something easily replicated. So, arriving home, I did. The following pictures show the process.

All that's needed is one of the captured nut lug covers, a length of PVC pipe whose inside diameter is close to the flat to flat measurement of the lug nut cover, a heat gun, and a little grease for releasing agent.

Grease the outside of the lug nut cover. Slowly heat one end of the PVC pipe until it is soft. Press the softened PVC over the greased lug nut cover. With the lug nut cover still inside the pipe, dip it into water to cool. Extract the lug nut cover, you've got your tool. $18 @ TA. Close to free at home

Repeat on other end of pipe. No need, but painted mine black.

On this topic of mods and upgrades... For those of us with DP's, at some time in the life of the coach we will need to gain access to the engine from the top through the access panels in the closet (in my case) and the deck next to the bed (in my case). The closet has easy to open hatches on the floor. Between the closet and bed is another story.

I recently replaced my carpet. It was not as hard to do as I had anticipated, that is except for that deck between the closet and bed. The screws holding the deck cover in place were burred in the carpet and were impossible to find. I was only able to find each of them by cutting the carpet and removing it in sections. Not only that, 2 screws were behind trim panels! That was a challenge to squeeze my arm into the small opening I could force when the corner trim was removed to get to them.

When I had the deck cover re-carpeted I reattached it with only 2 screws and put washers under the screw heads. The carpet shag is significant enough to cover the screws but loose enough to be able to find them again. I put a screw in the original place on one of the trim pieces but it is simply resting in the original, oversized hole. It is stable enough not to move.

I see no advantage to the factory install of this cover. It has no where to go as I have attached it.

Happy trails,
