Think of it this way....
In most instances where a castellated nut is specified on RVís, it is because the fastener is is being used as a pivot point in that location. If the fasteners was fully torqued so that it was tight, the attached item would no longer be free to pivot.
So in this case, the castellated nuts should not be torqued to standard values.
