"Why the heck did they go with the problematic and gas guzzling Ford Triton V-10 engine, when they could have easily stuck a turbo diesel in that thing?  If it was a diesel, it would be awesome! Kev"

Torque Multiplier Wrench, remove stuck lug nuts the easy way!

"I keep one of these in my tool compartment in case I get a flat.  On our 1995 Itasca's Oshkosh chassis, the lug nuts are torques to over 500lbs!  And the driver's side is reverse threaded, like the old Dodge chassis. Kev"

"Kevin F Smith.  The joys of a 25 year old rig???  Oh, to have one so new.  How about a 1964 camper?   55 years old and counting.  Of course, I’m 72 and counting.  :-;"
