Hi, I'm a newbie here. 

I'm looking for advice from anyone using the Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs.  I just took my truck and camper out of storage from its second winter and I'm thinking it might be time to tighten these bad boys.  Two of them seem just a little loose.  I didn't install them but I'm hoping that tightening them is as simple as securing the back nut with a socket and ratcheting the front.  Please can anyone advise if I'm correct.

Also, is there any other maintenance I should be performing? I read somewhere that I should be putting turtle wax on the camper jacks. Does anyone else do this to maintain them?

I checked all the caulk seals around the camper and they seem good, nothing dry and cracking yet.  I'm thinking I wait one more year before messing with them.

Thanks so much!

Oh I should add that the truck is already off to the mechanic for an oil change and general overall check...

Just trying to prevent any problems...
