Jack and tire iron?

Does Jayco include a jack and tire iron with the trailer? We can't seem to find it?..

not provided with our tt, there was an earlier thread about which kind of jacks everyone is carrying. i carry a star wrench tire iron in my tv, found one at wally for 12 dollars that is made of steel and 2 sides fold up so it fits nicely in the tv. happy camping!

Mine came with a tire iron. I have used the leveling jacks to change the wheels.

I asked our Dealer about that when we picked up our new TT. He said that trailers don't normally come with a jack or tire iron. He mentioned a star tire iron and a bottle jack should work fine.

Didn't get either with our unit- But we have been RVing for more than 60 years and have acquired the necessary tools as I'm sure y'all have done- In our case, we carry an 8 ton hydraulic jack and an 18 volt impact wrench which has many other uses-JMHO- DD

No wrench or jack came with our 5er. I use the jack from our pickup and a star wrench.

Bottle jacks work very well, but an improvement on the star wrenches would be a 24 inch long breaker bar and socket, and possibly needing a 3 inch extension on the socket to clear the wheel if it is dished. I find that you can get a lot more leverage on the breaker bar than the star wrench.
