It's called a Torque Multiplier. They can be very pricey, but got one a few years ago on Amazon. It's worked to help get the lugnuts off and back on. With a little math and a torque wrench I'm confident I got them properly torqued.

Those are interesting. I carry an impact but I do have on board air.

Unless you have a 3/4 or 1 inch impact, it won't break loose those lugs on a 22.5" wheel. I have a 1/2" and even at 150 psi home compressor, it wouldn't break any of the lugs loose.

Lug nuts on 22.5" wheels are torqued to 400 ft/lbs. That, and a wheel/tire combo that weighs in excess of 200 lbs usually means that this is something left to roadside tire service people.

Back to the Original Post

I think that the OP stated they had a Vista 27N. That should be on the F-53 18K lb. GCVWR chassis. In that case the wheel lug nut torque is only 170 lb/ft. The lug wrench provided is more than adequate for the task. If you want to be sure though, an electric impact wrench to run on your generator will make life easier. Just be sure that you have a low-profile jack for the front axle. I found out that my 20 ton bottle jack wouldn't fit under the axle beam with both tires aired up to normal pressure. It would be lower if one was flat. I also carry a heavy-duty jack stand. If you raise the front with the leveler jacks you can place the jack stand under the axle beam and then lower it to safely change the tire.
