Hi
Not the wheel nut but it is normal practice to renew the hub nut when the caravan is serviced (1 nut on each hub)

Hi As rcpilot says the nut on the stubaxle that holds on the bearing and brake drum via the outer race of the bearing should be renewed every service as the nut has to be removed to remove the brake drum these nuts are self locking and usually come in the sizes of 27mm & 33mm and are torqued up 280nm and 330 nm if your van is built before 1998/99 and has a castlelated nut and split pin no, new flanged self locking nuts fitted after 1999 usually cost between £6-50 & £9-00 each depending where you buy them,
