How do you remove the wheel simulators on 29h outlaw?

Doesn't seem to have the removable lugs and came with no tool to do such..

Are you talking about the wheel cover? I just had mine off yesterday!
Get yourself about the biggest flat-head screwdriver you can find, and just start picking your way around the edges with it.
It pries off!

Yep Bob.. the where covers... through deducted reasoning, that's what I did...I looked at the lug covers and couldn't find any markings to indicate a removable one, plus the unit didn't come with the special wrench to remove them..but Thor not putting one my RV not unusual..then I just put the lady foot bar behind the rim and cover and worked my way around... definitely going to have to use rubber mallet to reinstall!

If not a rubber mallet: use a folded up towel to soften the blows.
(I used the aforementioned mallet, and it made the job easy! )

Just a note for you guys.I lost the rear two wheel cover, one in AZ and one in NM on our vacation. Got the part number from Thor and found them on Ebay. Installed with a rubber mallet and added two black plastic ties through the holes on each wheel so they hopefully won't fall off again. After that experience I've noticed a ton of RVs missing their rear covers.
