Is there a tire jack somewhere in my RV?

I recently noticed a similar thread in the Solera forum and it got me wondering. I found a tire iron (or is it a lug wrench?) under the passenger seat, but I have never seen a jack inside or underneath my 2010 Sunseeker 2300 (purchased new).

I belong to Good Sam's roadside assistance so I would have no need for the jack, but why was the tire iron included if there isn't a jack somewhere?

Again, just wondering....

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the reply Ford Idaho.

I just found the following while doing a forum search...

from Aug. 2012:

Jacks do not come with the motorhome prep package on Ford's, we don't take them out. It also doesn't come with a spare or a lug wrench, we have to add those in.

I guess I can stop looking now.

I didn't have a lug wrench in mine.

In the thread I read about there being no jack in "my" RV, there was more mention of the lug wrench and spare and who added what. Having a hard time trying to find that thread again to repost here.

gotta remember that jack needs to lift give or take 4 to 5 thousand lbs or more. Much better to left the Sam guys lift it with a proper jack; not one designed for the family car

Ford stopped putting the lug wrenches in as well.

Just go online (EBAY) and you can find new takeout Econoline jacks and lug wrenches if you want them. You can also find Econoline spare tire winches which make spare removal much easier.

The only thing I would jack up a motorhome with is at least a 10 ton bottle jack and matching jack stand.
