Question Pin Box Bolt Torque?

In addition to my post about leveling my fifth wheel and truck when towing, when I undo the bolts for the pin how tight are they supposed to be, they appear to be a rather large bolt, so I would imagine we are talking a pretty good amount of torque.
Anyone know what the torque is?

I had to raise the pin box on my 5er and called the factory for the torque. They said 150 lb-ft, which is lucky since that's as high as my 1/2-inch torque wrench will go.

Check what type bolts you have carefully. Our rig is labelled to tighten the bolts to 240 ft lbs.

I switched to Grade 8 bolts, did them tonight, but had no time to finish, so will torque them after work tomorrow.

Okay, went over my hijacker hitch and torqued all to 90 foot lbs, and the pin box bolts I went up to 160 Foot lbs so will see how that goes.
Did my 15" rims to 100 foot lbs.
So just one last double check and we will be off Saturday for two weeks.
