Once you get them off you will see the retainer nuts that hold the simulator on the wheel. Be careful since the ones on the drivers side are left handed thread. That removal tool that Dicor sells to remove the retainer nuts is a worthless POS and will probably bend whenever you go to use it .
( ask me how I know LOL)
Not true!! My front covers are held on by 2 nuts just like the back ones.

Hey folks, there are several different mounting systems for wheel liners and simulators. The OP is going to have to determine which style he has before he can properly remove them. Some unscrew, some pull off. Some have 2 nuts and some have 3 probably there are some with even more. A few may even be left handed threads.

Some are mounted using a rubber hammer just like cars used to be. There are probably other methods too. I don't think any of us can say exactly what method is used to mount the OP's liners/simulators.

Proper size socket and yse your torque wrench. The unscrew and have a regular nut holding the wheels on. Retighten snug. Only the 2 heavy nuts hold the cap on.

Yes, there are a few different versions out there. My statement above about unscrewing the simulator nuts was made because the OP has the T handle wrench. If you look at his coach's manual, it shows a picture of the tool just beneath the other tire tools inside one of the storage compartments. This is the same set up my 03 Itasca has. Unfortunately, the manual doesn't cover r&r of the wheel covers themselves.

I would bet money the nuts are just too tight for that little wrench to handle. The right size socket and breaker bar will probably loosen them up with ease.

My coach came with both the tee handle tool and the pliers tool to remove the push-on type covers. My simulators(front and rear)have the 2 covers that unscrew. First time I removed them, I broke the already deformed tee handle tool. Threw it in the trash, added the correct socket to my tool box that already had a 1/2" breaker bar.
I'm waiting to find someone in a campground somewhere with the push on covers to gift the pliers tool to.
