I think he already has done that, or he wouldn't be down to Entegra, Tiffin, and Newmar. He's probably not looking for a teardrop, fifth wheel, or Class C.

This is correct and is super important. Too much torque and the cast wheel hub will warp and now you will have to replace the hub AND gasket to get the leak to go away. 15 foot pounds only.
