Default Lug nut torque for 189FBS?

The owner's manual for our 189FBS does not specify the torque for wheel lug nuts. It seems logical that this figure should be standard for the small Cruiser TT's. Anyone know the number of foot-pounds? Thanks.

85 Ft lbs sticks in my mind, but I am trying to confirm this, anyone else?

Default Torque for wheel lug nuts

In a former life with a Cougar 5er 120 ft# was specified in a video put out by Keystone. Why would the little 189 be any different?

There can be a difference based on alloy wheels versus steel wheels, 5 lug versus 4, diameter of the lugs themselves, etc...

By applying too much torque you can deform/fracture/crack alloy wheels much easier than steels wheels. I need to recheck my trailer, later this morning I will call the service center and ask.

Ruthrauff RV, where my Fun Finder was purchased and serviced, says they torque from 80lbs to 85lbs on all their trailers. I am going to look at the wheels/axels etc to see if it is specified on the trailer.
