Tip: Removing wing bolts
There's a really great thread at Van's Air Force with suggestions for ways to remove wing bolts that are stuck. They include using a big hammer and rotating the bolt, both of which are considered idea that aren't compatible with loving your RV.
Rick Galati has posted a great solution, which involves a socket set and a large C-Clamp (although I'm not sure a C-clamp will fit in this position.) The solution will look familiar to anyone who's ever changed brake pads on a car, it's using the leverage of a brake-puller, and it makes perfect sense.
