Mine did. It drops down like a truck spare. Have you crawled under the trailer and looked?

We have a 2015 33' Shockwave and there was no spare when we had a blowout. :-(

Our 2016 f28FQDX has one underneath the rear. I better check the pressure in it before one of the chinese on the ground blows

Our tires that came on our 2015 Shockwave only lasted two years. One came apart on the road and the others has belts coming through. So crazy how they all go at the same time.

Get alignment of your trailer axles right away. Even from brand new. I wore one tire to the cords in 900 km right from the dealer. Rest of them are 3 seasons old now and look very good.

We have only pulled our 2016 28FQGDX Shockwave about 8 or 900 miles. I commented to my wife as we pulled out of the dealer's lot that is seemed to pull harder than our 31 ft fifth wheel. When we got home with it we run across the scales with it. It doesn't weigh anymore than the old trailer but pulls a lot harder. Brought our fuel mileage down 2 mpg also.
As it sits in our driveway I run a straight edge on the wheels, not too scientific, and found them to be quite a bit out of alignment. I want to hook on to it and make sure there is no twist or sidedraft on the wheels before I get too carried away with this idea but it's not looking good. Just hoping the dealer will take care of an alignment problem, too costly to not, considering wear on tires, bearing and extra fuel.
Be awhile before I get it to the dealer as we have about 6 inches of the beautiful white stuff on the ground as I type this.

2016 shockwave t24 spare tire

Please post update when you have one. I think we have same fifth wheel: 2016 F28SAGDX? I do not see a 28FQGDX in the 2016 Shockwaves brochure - was that a typo?

We have pulled ours several thousand miles in the year we have had it, with no noticeable uneven wear on the tires. Only issue has been getting used to the height - previously we owned travel trailers. Have two patches in the roof and lost the TV antenna and vent cover from two different lost-battles with low hanging trees, one in state park, the other in my neighborhood.

Ours is a bumper pull, went from the old fifth wheel to this, not real happy the way it pulls. I still think the alignment is the problem. The SA designates a fifth and FQ is a bumper pull is best I can tell you. Height wise ours is still 12' 4", can't get it in my 12' shop door!!
Here's link to it.
