    For number 1, the correct answer is really 80. The inner duals also have lugs, that also act as the studs for the outer duals.

  2. Keith Berg

    Hey Lug-Nut,

    I only missed one, the lug nut question. However had we not spent most of the day together at Spartan, I may not have gotten some of the others correct. Hope your repair went well and you are on your way home.

  3. Gary

    Jon, you are mistaken on the number of lug nuts. On newer type wheels threr only outer lug nuts securing the entire wheel to the hub.

  4. Jon, The modern 45′ coach chassis has 60 studs on three axles. Each stud only uses one lug nut including the dual drive wheels. Thank you for your participation and for your input. What was your score?

  5. Keith Berg, Good going! Yes, we left at 4 PM from Spartan and arrived at the Rama Casino in Orillia Ontario, Canada at 12 PM. It was great meeting you and hopefully our paths will cross again soon. Thanks for the post.

  6. Gary, Thanks for the correction and for your input.

  7. driverboy

    quiz is interesting, but the answer to #7 is a tad off… Chicago is correct, but “A” is not.

  8. Lucky Lindy

    I got all 10 right, but cheated on #1 & looked at our motorhome and googled #10. Others, I did know. #7..Correct answer is Chicago, but you have (A) as the correct letter. Quiz was fun. Thanks.

  9. PapPappy

    Only got a 70…..but then, I really know nothing about those braking systems….
    Also didn’t know much about the Class A units (we have a “C”), so got those two wrong…..guessed right about #2, but it was a guess……never been out there.

  10. butterbean carpenter

    Howdy Lugnut,

    The brake thing threw me.. Thanx, for the info, now I know the differences..

  11. tiger06

    Number 7 answer is E not A

  12. Art Armstrong

    This Riverbend Rubber got 8 correct……………not too shabby for an old fart!

    AA

  13. Larry Fox

    I missed the 9th one only. Also your answer on question 7 says that the city is Chicago as A but in the test Chicago is E.
    I think I did very good only missing one out of 10
    Cheers
    Larry

  14. New here and new to RVing on 4 or more wheels. Have camped etc. for many years but have done most of it by Motorcycle and tent and then tent trailer.
    Our new to us class A is at the garage for safety and e-test. Hope to take off next week for a month. I missed 3 questions but I figure that’s not to bad for a newbie.
    Thanks for the quiz.

  15. larry9824

    I remember reading some news article a few months ago and I believe that the wind speed record went to someplace in northern Russia.

  20. Daryl

    I got 8 out of 10, missed #1 and #10, should have paid more attention when I took a picture ofthe Monaco coach at the RiverBend RV show.

    Good quiz.

  36. Ray Martin, Hey, 8 out of 10 is very good. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.

  37. Feeline, Another 80%. I either made it too easy or everyone getting far too smart. You may also have remembered a blog on the five slide Monaco, oh well. Thanks for posting your score and for your valued input.

  38. GaryM

    I need to get out more… 4 of 10 right. I do have a 5’r no MH. Don’t know about lug nuts on MH – haven’t been in the Eastern states much. I need to get out more…

  39. GaryM, Well, may be all things considered, you did not do so bad. Thanks for posting your score and for your valued input.
