Default Tire tube valve stem nut

Hey Guy's,
I noticed that the nut on the new tube's valve stem was loose. The nut on the old tubes valve stem was also loose. Is the nut supposed supposed to be on the inside against the tube or on the outside tightened against wheel? Or, is the nut not used in this wheel application? The nut being loose on the new tube indicated to me that it might be removed for some reason.

Thanks

They are not used on the 12. See KAI section 35.

Default Thanks again Bob!

Bob,
I went to the Matco website and the maintenance manual. Missed it.
Thanks again. I owe you lunch/dinner should we cross paths one day.

Thanks

Default Rv-12 non IS

Does anyone know if wheels are different on a Legacy RV-12 , the word “discard” is not used on Legacy KAI. I have spent much time frustrated by including them in tube/ wheel installation.
Thanks,
Stan
