    Lugs and nuts

    We have been sitting in a KOA in Streetsboro Ohio waiting for lugs and nuts since Thursday of last week. We left RVC Thursday after being there for many many days, traveled 258 miles east. DH was checking the torque and found 3 loose nuts and 1 stripped lug. Called Good Sam and they came out and said got to go and find some.

    Why is it so hard to find lugs and nuts to fit these wheels???????

    Hi PK,

    Sorry to hear of your woes. What have you done to find the lug nuts so far- besides Good Sam ERS?

    I remember when one of mine stripped as I was removing it (likely cross-threaded when a tire service company changed a flat), I could not find one to fit in the cabinet at a tire shop.

    Probably a Goodyear truck tire repair shop would have some that fit. Maybe not chromed. Have you called Heartland Customer Service for any help (with ideas at least)?

    Below are a few Goodyear's near you. Maybe one of them can help you out.

    Did you try a GOOD tire shop. We have several tire dealers that deal in tractor and truck tires and they have an assortment of lug bolts and nuts. Most farm implement dealers can match up those items also.

    Jim, You are on top of things my good man. What would this form do without you. You are doing a great job. Keep up the good work.

    Ken,

    Just doing what anyone with ready access to the Internet and good Googling skills would do. Helping out a fellow Heartlander. PK's good people too

    Thanks too for your input CB.

    Maybe PK can make some calls in the morning. They can run the Ford over to a shop and pick up what they need.

    Jim

    Sorry for your inconvenience in my home territory! There is an RV dealer that sold Landmarks in Hartville, OH which is south of you on SR43. Their number is 330-877-3500. Avalon RV on SR18 just west of Akron is a BigHorn dealer. Their number is 800-860-7728. There is a Camping World on I-71 at SR303. Their number is 800-528-4566. One of these dealers may have what you need. I sent you a private message if you would like to contact me personally for some assistance.

    On the road again

    Hi,
    The Luv Shak is on the move again. We have been broke down with bad lugs and nuts for a week. The parts came in today, just like RVC said they would. Franz (Good Sam) came out this afternoon and put them on for us. We ordered a spare set, since they are so hard to find.
    We are heading to Maine tomorrow. Watch out for us along I 80 E. We plan to stay a few days in the Green and White Mountains.
