96í 28T Bounder wheel lug size

Hi,

Trying to find the tools Iíll need to remove the 2 front tires of my Bounder.

I know they are 2 lug covers on the wheel simulator (maybe I can use a wrench and a rag to avoid scratches?)
, then the 2 lug of the wheel simulator and after that the actual lugs.

Tried to find this info online but seems that every model and year changes and I donít have the Bounder or itís manual close to me.

Thanks!

This sounds like you have ; Dicor stainless steel simulators ; as you're already aware different chassis used different sizes of retainers and tools. The size on my Freightliner wouldn't help you

Dicor no longer supports these products , so finding the actual tools is frustrating to say the least . There are coated plyers for pulling the acorn caps and sockets for the retainers . But you'll have to measure what you have to be sure your getting the right stuff .
Actual lug nut size will be info to get from the chassis manufacturer.

What chassis is your Bounder built on ?

First picture is the Dicor logo on the cap center .
Second is the size of the retainer on my Freightliner chassis .
I'll see if I can track down a picture of the Dicor tools and any supplier.

Thank you skip!

I think I can try with a wrench and a rug for the lug caps. My question is more oriented to the tools I’ll need to remove the wheel from the rv.

The actual lug nut size is going to vary by the chassis manufacture and the chassis designation .

So , is your coach on a Ford or Chevy ( Workhorse ) chassis and if Workhorse is it a P series or a W series .

Tools to remove a wheel , would include a heavy enough jack and stands; to lift and support the coach , the correct size socket , and a torque wrench to retighten the lug nuts on reinstallation and again after 50/100 miles of driving . Size of the torque wrench will depend on the lug nut torque specified by the chassis manufacturer .
