Lug nut size

Not the driver of the tow vehicle, the ones on the trailer.
Are they the same size as the wrench that you use for the stabilizing jacks. It's a Jayco Jay Flight G2 23

joe in calif--- my 19H has 13/16's. Glad you brought this up, In the process of removing the wheels,in order to drop my axels, in became apparent that whoever mounted the wheels at Jayco had just had a power lunch. I had to use a 1/2" breaker bar with a short pipe to remove the lug nuts. I guess check them at home would be a good thing as i don't normally carry a breaker bar & pipe while traveling. Larry

Go to your local auto parts store & purchase a quality 4 way lug wrench.

Agreed - had a flat (in the driveway, thankfully) and found that I had no way to remove the wheel as the lugs were different from the TV. Was something I hadn't really thought about until then. Purchased a lug-wrench for the specific size of the trailer and keep it in the trailer! Unfortunately, that's one of those "standard" things that really should be provided with trailers, but never are!

I picked one up at WM that lives in the trailer. I also torque my lugs to 120 ftlbs. There's no reason to have to have an impact air gun to take lug nuts off. That's just nuts.

Thanks for the replies, I'll pick up a 4 way lug wrench before my next trip and check the lugs before I take off.
