Rusty, I had looked at torque multipliers. In fact, one of the respected guys on another forum had a homemade one. I didn't see prices on the models in your link and will contact them tomorrow. My guess is that the LW-750, the least expensive of the group and the one that would be best suited to MH lug nuts probably costs north of $350. As far as I can tell, that might still leave me with problem of removing the lug nuts in the first place.

I moved the tires around before they were mounted to my wheels the last time that I bought new tires. After that, I have no desire to remove a wheel myself. The problem that I was trying to fix for which I had to remove a wheel would have to be seriously expensive if I tried to pay someone else to do it before I'd make the kinds of investments to take off and put on a wheel myself.

Charlie,

Torque multipliers can be used to loosen as well as tighten fasteners.

Some have reported finding less expensive torque multipliers (the X4 multipliers are, admittedly, industrial grade) at Harbor Freight. Might be worth a look.

You're right, though. Keeping a paid up CoachNet or Good Sam ERS policy in effect might be an easier option!

Rusty

That's the route that we selected. We've been CoachNet customers since '06. I cannot say whether that is good or bad because I haven't had to use them.

I did look at Harbor Freight. If I were going to go the torque multipler route, this one might be the right choice. The only other one that HF has looks a little fragile for the MH lug nuts, at least to me.
