When checking for lug wrench fit, make sure you also test it on the lug nuts on your spare tire mount! On my Rockwood, the spare tire nuts are larger than the lug nuts on the axles. It would really suck to get a flat, get the tire off, only to find out you can't get the spare off the mount.

Agreed. But, how many people would think that there may be more than one size lug nuts on their TT? I dare say most would find out after it's too late.

Wise to have extras anyway. 2 weeks ago I had a lugnut that I couldn't get threaded back on. Luckily I had 5 brand new ones in the parts bin. A 15 minute tire change could've turned bad.
