lug nut size

New to travel trailers. 2012 Swift SLX 145rb. I want to make sure I have all the tools to change a flat if needed.

What size are the lug nuts for 13" rims? I have an electric impact tool I can use.

Also where do you place the jack? Under the axle?

Thanks for any help

Pretty sure you shouldn't jack your trailer up by the axle.. Put your jack on the trailer frame as close as possible.

Ok thx. They 13/16" nuts. I didn't realize the two impact sockets that came with the gun were two sided.

Jack from the frame but make sure its at an intersection of a cross beam. (two beams).
I jacked on first beam I could find and saw a slight bent mark so I go for cross beams right in front of tire. Also make sure to buy a torque wrench and torque nuts to spec. I use 70foot lbs on my alumunim rims. Make sure your wrench in foot pounds and not inches.
