a little over 4K on coach and the tension fit rear covers keep getting loose. One came off, I retrieved it, it then came off again and due to safety issues, I was unable to get it. They have not been off since the factory, although I have had to push them in to seat them a few times when they started to come off. I use a rubber hammer but they can be seated with hand pressure - a bit sloppy IMO
Wheel covers are dicor. on chevy chassis.
Has anyone else had this kind of problem and how did you fix it? Thanks

edited to remove reference to wheelmaster since they are dicors

Are those Wheelmaster "hubcaps" or wheel liners?

If they are hubcaps, and the 19.5" size, I would ditch those for the wheel liners which are held on my bolt "covers" that screw on 2 of the exposed lugnuts.

Turns out they are dicor hcovers - a hubcap type and not the more secure wheel liner, Winnebago included both a dicor warranty card and a wheelmaster brochure with the coach information / operation packet.
Winnebago is sending me a new replacement cap.

I still have to figure out a way to secure them from flying off.
I called wheelmaster and they mentioned that dual wheels should have the wheel liners in them and not the hubcap type.

I still have to figure out a way to secure them. I will call dicor next.
If I have to, I'll use tie wraps until I can come up with a better idea.

I called dicor and they said they never heard of a wheel cover coming off.
I find that one hard to believe.
The girl that answered the phone passed me over to a salesman who was supposed to call me back today, but never did.
