Don't know about Monaco, but my current Spartan and Freightliner were right hand thread all around.

One way to tell is that the left hand thread nuts have a big L on them... wrecked my wheel trim before I learn that.... found the original supplier and they were not to pricey...

Can one person do it (If they have the jacks and the wrench)?

Well.... I, personally, HAVE DONE IT. so the answer is yes.

However before you reach for your impact wrench I will tell you that I routinely pick up my wife's mobility scooter and load it on the package tray (Hitch Hauler) this puppy has a shipping weight of 250 pounds.

And it is below my lifting limit. I am over six feet and 300 pounds myself. And the one time I pulled a 22.5.. And loaded it in a Tacoma for transport... I was "Maxed out" as it were.. I do not recommend you try this.

Oh, the one time I personally had a flat (The one I did belonged to my barber) ONE service man removed it and replaced it.. he was slightly bigger than I am.
Home is where I park it!

I wimped out guys (see bushing replacement post under Monaco forum). Took the coach to a commercial truck shop and had the upper torque arm bushings replaced. Then took it to a truck tire shop to have the inside tires replaced after the first shop inadvertently inserted the arm retaining bolts incorrectly and cut a huge groove in the tires. Close call but no blow-out. These Michelin tires have a LOT of rubber in the sidewalls!

I watched the tire guy work. One young fellow in his mid-20's and about 165 pounds did it all himself. The HUGE air-impact wrench was the clincher though. It made short work of the wheel nuts. Convinced myself to keep the road service contract current cause this is a job beyond my capabilities. Now maybe if I weighed more than the wheels (you a biggun there wa8yxm) I might give it a try.
