Yep, video is a classic for sure. Some folks don't realize the potential energy involved in a recovery operation, just like "some folks" don't realize checking the hardware under their rig prior to any long trip, or after any work performed by someone else (especially tire changes) is a common sense move that can prevent damage or injury. Always check lug nuts after any tire work, and again after 30-50 miles.

Many tire shops hire kids, and most them kids don't set the pneumatic air wrench to the proper specs for a heavy rig like a 1-ton camper van. Too tight and the lugs can be damaged or roters warped, too loose and the tire can come off. And if that tire comes off and disapears into an inaccessable ravine, and that happens off road miles from help, so much for using your spare in a recovery operation. -But hay, as the wise one once said: "go prepared or don't go."
