Changing gasket on Right front hub

I have a gear oil leak coming out of my outside right front hub on my 2003 Holiday Rambler M.H. sitting on a Workhouse W-22 chassis. I ordered the gasket from ultra products and it looks like a fairly simple fix. Drain the gear oil, remove the 4 bolts holding outside cap, clean everything, re-install outside cap with new gasket and re-fill with gear oil. I don't know what the torque spec is on the 4 bolts so I assume good and snug would be OK. Am I missing something or is there something I should watch out for or be aware of before starting this project? I would appreciate any suggestions or tips from my fellow RV friends..
Thanks... Jay

It might be a good idea to go ahead and remove the wheel to inspect the bearings and replace the rear seal on the axle. You could also inspect and clean the brake caliper. If those items need service, you'd just have to replace the gasket again anyway.

Before doing anything, closely inspect the plastic hup-cap. I noticed a small leak, wiped ti away and it returned. When I removed the plastic hub-cap I noticed a hair-line crack. Went a local HDT parts store, bought new hup-cap, gasket, and a small bottle of 80W hub oil. The hardest part was cleaning spilled up old hub oil when I was finished.
Tightness, I tightened mine snug like you said, it just has to be tight enough to prevent leakage. NO gasket cement/sealer!
