Many campers run many kilometers with their caravan in the summer holidays. You find here some input on what you should be focused on in your camping.
Driving you with spare ?:
If you run with spare, and you have alloy wheels as standard and steel wheels as reseverhjul, You should be aware of the bolts from the alloy wheels suitable for steel wheels, if not, should you had bolts that fit both types of rims, otherwise it is false security 🙂 . There are conical, round and flat bolts.
Fast Clamping car and camping wheels:
We always check before we run much about the car's wheels and campingvogens wheel tightened. Correct tightening is done with a torque wrench, a torque wrench ensure fælgende are tightened with the correct and uniform tightening. A torque wrench costs about. kr. 300,- And up after – We apply itself to roughly. kr. 300,-, and has worked well for many years 🙂 . We also use when changing from summer tires to winter wheels and vice versa.
When purchasing momenttop should also buy an impact wrench which costs about. kr. 60,- it exists with plastic cover that protects the scratches on the rims.
You will find in your caravan and car's manual information torque. Torque is expressed in Nm (NewTon Meter). For example, we were informed that our car must be tightened to 120 Nm (12 kg), and our caravan must be tightened to the 120 Nm. The wrench has Nm, but makes such tightening, and range then the wheel studs and when it clicks are bolts tightened to the correct tension.
The wheel bolts should be tightened after 50-200 km's drive (also applies when changing wheels).
We have relatively new alloy wheels on the caravan as have not run as many kilometers yet, Therefore, take this time our torque wrench and post-ranging underway.
