It's a good idea to check the lug nuts WITH A TORQUE WENCH every few hundred miles for a while. I have found the ones on my 2014 Pinnacle to have a few lug nuts slightly loose on several occasions. The nuts on aluminum wheels shouldn't be reefed down as tight as you can possibly get them like you can with steel wheels.

Good idea. Do you know how many pounds to torque?

Detailed directions are in the Dexter service manual. If you have 16 in wheels they should be tightened in 3 stages. 1st -20-25, 2nd -50-60, 3rd 90-120.
Check the bolt sequence of tightening.

Make sure you get some good wheel chocks for hooking and unhooking. Does use the yellow plastic things from Camping World. I learned the hard way!
Have fun and enjoy.

We have had our Pinnacle for almost two years, enjoying ours. Currently living in ours (sold our house to or son and haven't decided what our next step is) working out well. A few small issues but pretty rock solid. I have looked at the new 2015's some sweet upgrades.

So far I just have wood chocks I made myself. Worked well so far (cheap). I just arrived home from a trip to Branson, MO. All went well except I should have taken that tool box out sooner. Need a band-aid.

Congrats on the new Pinnacle!
We took ours to Alaska and back last summer.
Enjoy yours as much as we enjoy ours!

First 5th wheel ever owned.


Pulling with a, yes you guessed it 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500HD CC Std bed Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo Diesel with Allison 6-speed Auto Trans & Reese 18K slide
silveradoboomer, do you have the bedroom A/C? We are looking at the 2015 Pinnacle and wonder how noisy the bedroom A/C is. Is your Chevy a dually?
Do you have the residential frig? I've seen a post talking about running the battery down after 1 night of dry camping.
