BTW, my lug nuts are supposed to be torqued to 450-500 lb-ft. You are not going to break those loose without the use of an impact gun.
I checked my owners manual and my lug bolts are also 450-500 ft pounds of torque. We borrowed two impact guns , one was a 1/2 inch drive, max torque 500 lbs, no luck at all breaking them loose, then we got one with a 3/4 inch drive, torque unknown, and we still could not break them loose, it made one hell of a racket tho.
Tomorrow we have a friend bringing one of those big two handed jobs home to try. We are using a Gasoline dual tank compressor that we can crank up to around 140 psi.
Those bolts have been on there for a long time, guess we are fighting a combination of torque and rust

I guess they didn't want the wheels coming off accidentally, LOL. Good luck!

I think by black tank knife valve has a bit of a leak, oh joy.

I was out looking at impact wrench's today, the most powerful one I saw was a 900-950 ft pound torque one at Northern Supply for 100 bucks.
I have one but it is 150 pound unit and will not even break the lugs off my jeep wheels

Tried to make it so water stays in the toilet bowl. Copious amounts of plumbers grease works. Just might have to break down and buy the new seal anyway.

Checked out the furnace to make sure all was well wit it as we'll need it in our travels. Started putting the trim back around the kitchen floor. Will have to finish it tomorrow as we want to hit the paavement next week. A few pieces were ruined as they had turned a black color and were wet anyway. The leak is now fixed I hope, when it's a small leak it's quite hard to find but when it remains un noticed, well the damage goes deep.

Cheers
Willey

Got a deal on a group 27 Bosch battery at Pep Boys, it was on sale for 103.99 down from 119.99 and the salesman told me about an online coupon for 20.00 off any store bought item over 100. He printed it out for me and the battery got reduced to 83.99 plus tax's, It has 750 CCA which is a lot power at zero degrees, it puts out even more when warmer

That battery has a 36 month full guaranty! I've replaced mine twice due to a short somewhere in my engine. I now use a dash cutoff switch until I can isolate the problem.

Installed the new hanging bolts for the propane tank and started to reinstall the bamboo floor, looks great!

I bought a 3/4 drive socket set from Northern tools. (cheap) I got a drive shaft from a junked car. The drive shaft is about seven feet long after cutting off one end. I slip the drive shaft over the breaker bar and socket. I can loosen any lugnut now. I always break all nuts loose and retorque when I get the motorhome back home from the tire store. This has worked flawlessly for the past twenty years.
