2018 Sport 22FB - Wheel Torque Question

New Airstream owner here. This has been a dream of my wife and I for a while.

Being a single axle trailer, I really want to be on top of the spare tire game.
I watched videos of how to change the spare and feel ok about that.

A little bummer was that there is no spare changing kit. I built my own with breaker bar, extensions and torque wrench.

My questions is, what is the correct torque settings for the wheels and spare? I haven't been able to find this in the documentation.

Vancelot,

Check the owners manual for torque specs. I believe it is 80 lbs. Check your tow vehicle and see if the jack will fit the AS Jack point and if not go to Tractor Supply and buy one that will fit. Check the tire tool to see if it fits the AS lug nuts and if not ditto. Thatís all there is to it. Hope to see you on the road.

110 ft-lbs. Double check your owners's manual again, I guarantee it's in there :-)

Yep. Working from memory. Itís 80 psi for GYE tires and 110 lbs on torque. Memory fails if you donít go look it up. All else good.

Thanks all. I went back and searched the manual again and found it.
110 for the alloy wheels and 100 for the steel spare tire.
