Exclamation Spare tire

Does anybody know where the spare tire is located on a 2016 Sunseeker 3170?
I need to get the spare put on a front tire that is damaged. Thanks.

If it even has one.. My parents is under a floor panel in the rear storage compartment but theirs is a few years older.

My 3100SS is underneath behind the back bumper. Safety chains and a nut/plate holds it up. Heavy spare on your back, be careful!

Found it, wasn't even sure I had a spare, after so many comments that not all Class C's came with spares. Saved me a lot of time and money. Thanks to all who commented.

When we picked up the new 3010DS last month, I simply verified that it was there and secure. The weather was so bad I did not feel like sliding under to check it out. Got some time yesterday and went out to look. The tire is a LT225/75R16 by Wild Trail Commercial. It is held in place by a retainer plate and a 3/4" nut on a long bolt. At the very least, you will need a deep socket to remove it. The safety chain appears to be about 6 feet long, and is wrapped the the rim and frame about 4 times.

There are no tools for removing it, or lowering it to the ground. Use caution, it's heavy!!!

All of the ones on the coach itself are Hankook Dynapro HT 115/112S in the same size.

Found an different brand spare on my 2015 when I checked it. Seems to be FR normal procedure. My MH had ample storage to move it to a more convenient exterior storage compartment. Removing it was a nasty job(solo)

Careful taking the tire down. It weighs 95lbs. Mine was mounted like that I added a small winch for the spare. Works great and a lot safer foe me or the roadside tech.
Search the Sunseeker forum for Spare Tire Winch.
Lots of discussion on the spare tire issue.

Attached a photo of the spare tire under the 2016 Sunseeker 3170DS which is mounted under the back of the RV between the frame rails.
