Fixer, commented about the hub and oxidation between the rim and the hub. I have seen severe problems in that area on vehicles that have exposure in winter weather especially. Even if you torque, you could be tightening rust and corrosion that can loosen up down the road. Good cleaning and anti-seize the centering hub is well advised between the rim and the hub.

Umm, not sure what you are saying. Stud breaks in two. One half left in hub, one half probably lost. Examine the pieces tat were left on the hub.

Nowhere does it say what size tires you have. I say this because 19.5 has 2 different torques 120 is the light one. If torqued to say 450 like 22.5' s this can be why your studs all broke.

Gee, I've not seen a fifth wheel camper with 19.5" or 22.5" wheels!

Saw a segment on MotorWeek last night where they talked about high powered torque wrenches causing problems like all the above. Also, said brake rotors are frequently distorted due to massive over torque. I had a new set of tires put on my truck last year, about a week later I did a brake job on it and had to use a 24" breaker bar to move the wheel nuts, and I am far from a small framed guy.

A impact gun gives from about 450to 700 ft.lbs. of tourque. It does not make any difference if you have 14" or 22.5" over tourque will stretch and break studs. The smaller the wheel stud the bigger the chance of over tourque.
