Socket size

I am new to camping and purchased a Rockwood HE Aframe camper. It came without any jack or lug wrench. Can someone please tell me what size socket it takes so I can buy one to have with me?
Thanks

I believe that the lug wench is a 20mm. The jack wrench is a 3/4 in.

On my 2016 A213HW the lugs and stabilizers are 3/4".

As a standard.... 7/16 suds = 3/4 socket and 1/2 studs = 13/16

Unless my memory fails...as it does often

Just went out and measured the lug nuts and studs on my A122S.
Lug nuts use a 3/4 inch socket,
Wheel studs are 1/2-20 thread.
Stabilizing jacks use a 3/4 inch socket.

No disrespect intended, but you don't own a set of sockets? Or could you borrow one? I would just try each until I found the one that fit. Then you know what size it is for your particular unit.

You beat me to it. A good SET of sockets is a MUST have, to go along with an otherwise also well stocked toolbox that stays always handy when traveling!

Especially a 9/16" or 14mm socket to remove the roof lift actuator if/when it fails!

Since we want the right tools,

let us not forget a breaker bar to use on the tire lug nuts.


And, some of us might even need a piece of heavy duty pipe to slip over
the breaker bar to get enough leverage to loosen the lug nuts.
Quality heavy duty plastic pipe works without being too heavy.
The sockets should be heavy duty quality, as cheap thin-walled sockets
can actually break from high torque.

Some of you might know what I am talking about...

Socket size

One thing I started carrying is a ryobi 1/2 inch impact wrench. Runs off the 18 volt batteries that go in the blower, work light, etc that we also carry.

Just used in the wifes challenger to change a flat - torque spec is 115 lbs and took them right off no issues.

Much easier than the wrenches and breaker bars etc since Im not getting any younger

Also carry a torque wrench for putting back in if needed.

I found out that the t bar lug wrenches will not work with my aluminum wheels. The head of the wrench is larger than the well that the lug nut sit in. I have to use sockets and a breaker bar. My truck requires 150 lb/foot of torque so I have a really loooong breaker bar.

Most 'mag' type wheels require a thinwall socket to fit in the recess, a 6 point socket is recomended; also, beware that the spare may have a differnt size lug nut, learned that the hard way, lol
