Good morning all. I am trying to figure out how to remove the wheel liners on our 2003 Southwind. I located the nuts with the mark on them, but they dont move at all. I am worried that I will bend the wrench. Any thoughts? Many thanks.
Ron

Try pulling the 2 lug nut covers with the dimples on them straight off. I used a pair of water pumps, but I had to use a small screw driver to pry them a little away from the wheel cover before they would pull off.
After the first removal they come off pretty easy from then on.

You should not have to pull off the dimpled covers. There should be a large T-handle wrench with the coach that will fit over the two lugs with the dimple. Spin off these two decorative lugs and the wheel simulators pull off and you can see the rest of the lugs that actually hold the wheel on.

And welcome on board Eagles Nest..

The ones we have just pull off. There is a nut underneath that is spun off with the T-wrench that came with the coach, but most any lug wrench or large socket will do. That allows removal of the liner and access to the real lug nuts.

Thanks for the info. I got them off. They were overtightened, had to use braker bar.Everything is fine now.
