A real newbie question

We are new to motorhomes and the care and feeding of such. I'm fairly technical and can most of the maintenance required. At this moment, just one thing has peaked my curiosity. How does one get the stainless steel wheel coversofthevehicle? Don't want to screw up something that can cost a bunch to replace or repair. So how do they come off? 2015 Four Winds 28Z on 2015 E450 chassis.
Thanks so much.

Rears are a snap in on ours. I'd have to go look in the rain to check the front. Some use two two of the fake nuts on the front as real nuts. Not sure about ours but if you do a bit of judicious prying the center either comes out or stays put showing you they are screwed on. They are also snap in but with security. ;-)

BTW check and make sure you have valve extenders for the inside duals. You need them to check the tire pressure. Installing them is a PITA but beats not having them. ;-) You can also get a torque wrench that will handle them at Home Depot for ~ $85.

My class C is much older but mine use two removable outer lugnut covers to hold them on. There are ten stainless steel lugnut covers, but if you look carefully two of them on each wheel are a little different. These are the ones that are removable. There's a special T wrench that came with the vehicle that you use to remove them, then the wheel cover (with the 8 fixed lugnut covers) comes right off. Go take a close look at the "lugnuts" on your wheel covers and see if a couple of them look different.

The one's that come off have little dimples on them.
