Chrome wheels

Did anyone receive any literature on the chrome wheel upgrade? Who is the manufacturer and is there any contact info available? If not, I'll have to go to ETI for help. I need to replace the chrome hub cover and it does not appear to be part of the axle components.

I have a feeling I'll have to contact ETI for details on Monday! It appears I may have hit something that dented one of my center hub covers. Cosmetic, but still would like to look into have it fixed.

Chrome wheels?
I thought ETI only provided aluminum wheels as an option.

Chrome/aluminum/shiny, I'm not sure, they are not the white ones is all I know.

Hi:cpaharley2008... I'd check with Camping World or your local RV. dealer as the center covers are pretty standard for RV. wheels. Worst part I think is the wheel has to be removed to put the hub cover on first.
Here's a pic of "Old Faithful" at 12:56 pm. Right on time!!! We were early. Alf

But, doesn't the cover also cover the wheel nuts? If you put the cover on first, how in the world would you get the wheel bolted on? I'm confused...

If you look at the picture of the aluminum wheels ETI uses you will see the center cover part that the post is referring to. It does not cover the lug nuts Donna.

Correct, on the white stock wheels the cover cover's the lugs, on the chrome it is a separate piece, hopefully easy to replace once I get a p/n and a supplier.
