Wheel Liners

Have a 2004Adventurer 38 G Workhorse chassi which I bought used this past June. Yesterday I went to remove the wheel liners and discovered I do not have that T-Handle tool to remove the locking nuts. I have a double ended lug wrench and a bar but is doews not fit the wheel line nuts. My wheel liners are the two piece type, I believe Dicor but I'm not sure. Would this tool have come with the coach new, and where would it have been stored. My dealer can't seem to find a part number to order one. I even called Winnebago parts and they were no help. I may try called Dicor direct but I would need to know the model of the wheel liners. Anyone offer any help or suggestions.

Our 01 Adventurer came with the same style DICOR wheel liners. The wrench for removing them was part of the original equipment and was just thrown in the storage compartment behind the entry door.

The truth be known the original wrench isn't worth much. After the retainer caps have been on for a while there's no way that little sheet metal wrench is going to remove them. I went to the local farm store and bought an inexpensive 1 1/8" - 1/2" drive socket. It's easy to use even with a 3/8" ratchet (and adaptor) and will last the life of the coach.

Make sure you only attempt to remove the retainer caps ( ours are 180* from each other and have a horizontal indent about 1/2 way down the cap). If you make a mistake and try to unscrew the wrong ones you'll likely snap them off the liner.

My problem is I 'm not sure they are Dicor liners, they do not have that little star like decal in the center and they have 3 jam nuts holding them on and the nut is 1 5/8

This may help you find out the manufacturer of your wheel liners. Go to www.winnebagonind.com and click on "resources", then "manual and diagrams", then "Parts Catalog". Click on "serial parts list", click on the model year of your RV, then enter the last 5 numbers of the serial number of your RV, and click "search". The serial # should be on a label somewhere near the driver's seat, possibly on the door.

Scroll down on the parts list for your specific RV to, probably, Liner-Wheel (that's how ours is listed). Copy down the part number, then go back to the Parts Catalog page on the web site and click on the year of your RV to get the catalog for that year.

In the index of the catalog look for wheel liners, go to that page and start searching for the part number of your wheel liners. The different parts, including tools, should be listed there.

Also, if you give that wheel liner part number to Winnebago, I would think they should be able to tell you who the manufacturer is.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
