sitting at the campsite the other day looking at the wheels on our 2017 bounder and wondering how would you get the center cap off the rears. I have not seen the tool to remove them on our rig. (Bought it used) so my question is what is the tool called and the best place to get one. thanks in advance.

A 2017 Bounder would be a Ford F53 motorhome chassis and the wheel covers might be simulators rather than the actual alloy wheel hubs as on Rooster's '07 Rev. The 22,000 lb GVWR & up have alloy wheels, though.

Yes the wheels have simulators. The tool may be in one of the compartments Only 2 or 3 of the nuts hold the simulator to each rim.

A flimsy T handle with a cheap socket on it. Just get a 1/2 drive socket that fits an extension and ratchet/flex bar and use that. Don't over tighten. Had a tire shop start to tighten them with a impact wrench. The nuts only catch with about three threads.
