#sugarants #antsinrv #rvtipsandtricks Oh No! Ants! ANTS!!! If you have an RV and camp, we’ve all heard the yells when it comes to those annoying critters that invade our camper. If there is a path into the camper, these menacing bugs will overtake the pantry and any other place that may have something they want to eat.
Have no fear. We have a solution. There are many tips from tainted sugar to deadly sprays you can find on YouTube and throughout the web. Our solution has been used in backyard gardens for years and following the label directions can be very safe. Our objective is to keep harmful chemicals outside of the camper and only use safe solutions that won’t have a health impact to the human and pet occupants.

Those that have read their owner’s manual may recall seeing a mention of the need to check the lug nut torque. In this case, we are talking about how “tight” the nuts should be to ensure the wheels stay on our vehicles. Others may have a warning label on the inside of their RV. This is from my Class C Coachmen:
NOTE: Class A’s and RVs with 10-bolt wheels probably require a service truck and torque in the 450 ft-lbs range, so this info may not apply to you as you will need significantly different tools.
First, the simple answer:
• Look up the specification in the Owner’s Manual.
Here is a sample page from Heartland RV. Note they tell you how often to check and how tight to make the lug nuts and even the pattern for the sequence of tightening the lug nuts.
• With your torque wrench, follow the instructions for both frequency and how tight the lug nut should be.
• What to do if you don’t know what a torque wrench is? Watch this video.
• What to do if you don’t own a torque wrench? Check this videofor a comparison of different wrenches. You do not need to buy the most expensive wrench as, hopefully, you will be only using the wrench a couple times after a tire or wheel was changed on your RV, or maybe a couple times a year per your Owner’s Manual instructions. For infrequent use I have found Harbor Freight non-digital torch wrench adequate.
Now some background:
Do not lubricate the stud or lug nut with oil. This can affect the torque reading and could lead to stripped threads in lug nuts ($) or broken wheel studs ($$$).
This website gives a technical background on why not to lubricate lug nuts.
Some Technical Info for those that want to know more:
Torquing a bolt is to get a certain amount of stretch out of the bolt. If torquing a bolt to 80 ft-lbs, it is technically more accurate to say, “When you torque this bolt to 80 ft-lbs, it will cause it to stretch by .0030 inches.” In critical applications such as race engines, many engine builders use certified bolts and actually measure the stretch of the bolts rather than using a torque wrench.
Think of the bolt like a spring. When you torque it, you’re stretching it so that it exerts force on what you’re holding together. This videogoes deep into bolt stretch vs. torque.
When I was driving my race car, confirming the torque of the lug nuts was MANDATORY before each track session. With this as a standard practice, I never had a wheel come lose in 30 years of racing.

***Link to cone setup below***
The most common piece of advice that is given to new RV owners is to go out to a parking lot and practice backing up around cones. That is good and all but HOW should you setup the cones???
The maneuvers in this video are setup to teach control of the trailer, and build confidence in the driver. The best drivers are confident and relaxed.

MISSOULA – Three men have been charged with the theft in what court documents say is many thousands of dollars in bicycles and parts.
Justin Frazier, Dylan Mace and Clint Randall were arrested Wednesday after Missoula Police executed a search warrant on a home on the 1200 block of South 6th Street West that the three men were associated with.
When police arrived on the scene of the home, there were many bicycles located around and in an RV in the back of the home.
Police reported that a few highly valued bicycles were easily identified as stolen. According to court documents, police interviewed a few witnesses at the scene who all confirmed that they assumed the bikes were stolen.
One witness told police Frazier and Mace were competing to see who could steal the most valuable bike.
All three remain in the Missoula County Detention Center.
