New Itasca Suncruiser: How do you get the hubcaps off?

Greetings!!

I would like to check the lug nut torque on my 2015 Suncruiser 37F - as you are supposed to do - but no where in my Itasca documentation (the whole 15lbs of it), is there instructions on how to get to the lug nuts.

I shamefacedly admit I don't know how to get the hubcaps off.

The fronts - my first goal - appear to have three parts - A large wheel cover, a center piece that contains chrome lug nut covers and then a smaller center piece that has what looks like a place to stick a small pry bar.

I am reluctant to go after it with a pry bar totally without a clue. Can anyone offer any insight?

After this, the rear wheels....

Thanks,
Jerald Pendleton

On my Suncruiser the center hubcap will pop off if you use a plastic pry bar. Mine has aluminum wheels. I think the lug nut covers screw off to get to the lug nuts. At least on my Saturn that's what they do.

I have a 2012 Adventurer 37f. It has Alcoa wheels. On the front wheels there is a cover over the center hub. Those bolt looking things are fake. Two, and they should be opposite each other, will have slight indentations in their side. Easier to find by feel. You should have been provided with a tool to remove those 2. Then the cover lifts right off.

jrpend, two of the fake lug nuts unscrew with the special tool in your bag. The two removal nuts have dimples and stand off just a bit. See attached pictures.

I agree Super, great job on the pics and explanation! Very well done. I'm sure that you'll keep the pictures handy because the question will come up again!

Beauty!!

Thank you very much! I was wondering what the T-Handle was for. I was hoping it wasn't the lug wrench...

Me too, I had a feeling what it was for but it does make you wonder when you see that wrench hanging in the bay.

Some "numb nuts" at WGO decided to torque down those two lug nuts and I ended up twisting the handle of the T-Wrench. Had to dig around for a huge socket I had and got it off...geesh...

I just bought new tires for my MH and they had a devil of a time getting those things off. I never received a T wrench when I bought my rig. Does anyone know where I can buy one AND what it is called? Thanks in advance

Or you can simply go the Harbor Freight and pick up the special pliers they have. Camping World also sells the same ones.

Mr_D, Late model Ford aluminum wheels do not use the pop off lug nut covers. There are two screw on nuts with covers that hold the center cover with the fake lug nuts on it.
