Do you have a lug wrench in your TV that fits your TT?

Just asking....

I went a full season before it crossed my mind.....and it crossed my mind as I passed some poor soul and his family standing off high on the shoulder with a flat tired TT. I don't know about you, but my Jayco didn't come with a lug wrench. Turns out I would have been unprepared....

And if you have road side assistance - don't count them to be fully prepared either....they may not have the right walled socket and tear up your nice aluminum rims.

on my 184bh....the lug nuts are the same size at the hex shaped piece on my stabilizer jacks. So the tool they supplied to extend my jacks could theoretically be used to loosen/tighten lug nuts.

I went to Harbor Freight and bought an inexpensive 1/2 "drive socket, 6" extension, & a breaker bar for the tool box in the tt, not to leave ever. Larry

And do you have a jack or other means of raising a wheel to change a defective tire?
Is your spare really good enough to use and is it properly aired up?
About the lug nuts - were they put on by a poorly adjusted impact wrench? Can you remove them with your lug wrench?
There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.

I keep a Trailer Aid with the trailer and a breaker bar with the correct socket for the lug nuts.

The guy you saw standing there looking at his trailer probably doesn't know how to change a tire otherwise he'd be on his knees!!

But to answer your question I keep my 4 way lug wrench in the TT. My TV has a nice scissor jack that it came with from the factory and will work nicely on the trailer. Wheel chocks are in the trailer. If I need blocking there is firewood. If I'm on soft earth I can use one of my Lego leveling blocks to keep the jack from sinking in the soil. Use your head, improvise, adapt, and overcome!!
