Jack for changing tire

Does the solera come with a jack? We have a 2012 and we don't have a jack.

On our 2012 Solera the jack and miscellaneous emergency tools are under a panel under the carpet on the passenger's floor.

My 2013 has it under the floor board on the passenger side. I have to question it's ability to rise the unit? It's a standard jack for the MB van chassis not for a MH with coach and equipment. I think I would call road side assistance before trying to change a tire myself with that jack.

Thanks so much for the replies. I checked under the carpet and the jack was well hidden there on the passenger side. We are still learning about our Solera. I have to say we are enjoying it. Our last trip was Michigan UP. Beautiful up there. Thanks again for the help!

I've used it to change the rear tire. No problems.

Changing tire

Thanks for the info. Hopefully we will never need it. My husband wasn't sure what bigger tool was for. It was in with the other tools.

I'm with hkreck...I called roadside assistance when we had a problem with the right rear wheel on our maiden voyage. I'm glad I did. I watched 2 very husky (my guessitmate would be over 220 lbs. each) putting all of their weight on the handle of a large shop floor jack. They had trouble lifting the Solera...I wonder what kind of colorful words would have erupted from me if I had tried it with the on board jack?

Well I'm only 190 and had no problem changing rear tire. They should of used your jack if it took 2 guys to lift it with their jack. LOL
