Caravan wheels, like those on your car should have the tightness of their fixing nuts/bolts checked after a few miles running following refitting, in case the wheel has settled or shifted slightly and allowed the fixings to loosen. Thereafter they should stay in position.
Many advocate checking their tightness with a torque wrench before every journey. Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t check my car’s wheel nuts before every journey, so I’m at a loss to understand why I should do the same with my caravan! However all the talk in the caravan world about lost wheels is worrying, so in order to allay that fear I now fit wheel nut indicators as sold by the caravan accessory firm Milenco. Not too expensive, they simply tap onto the wheel nuts and make a quick visual check easily possible.
But I don’t still don’t use them on my car!
