Where is tire tool?

I got a new Hathaway 34IK and wanting to know if there is a tire tool for taking off TT lug nuts. Where is it located if there is one? I discovered my F350 tire tool is too small. Looks to be a 7/8 size....is this correct? Thx

I've never owned a Cedar Creek, but in all my years I have never seen any 5th wheel that came with tools for changing a tire.

I have never had a TT that included any tire tools or jacks. You have to supply your own.

Yep, no tire tools for trailers. Make sure you have one that fits the lug nuts before you need it
I always carry a breaker bar, extension, and proper socket for whatever trailer is behind me. Also carry, and frequently use, a torque wrench to check all lug nuts.

Also be sure to check the lug size in many cases your TV lug wrench will not fir it. I carry a big 4 way wrench.

Not only do they not provide tools they put those dumb covers on the lugs to help you strip them nice and easy. Be careful what tool you use because many 4 way tools will strip them and some dont fit on the wheels.

I have large socket sets. Need one for the water heater annode anyway so it works for me. They are $13 at harbor freight and a breaker bar is cheap there too but I use the torque wrench on the lugs. That and a trailer aide will get them swapped really quickly.

I would add that a floor jack and lots of blocks of wood sure come in handy.

Only six point socket on those lug nuts with the covers on them. If you have alloy wheels a 4 way wrench will not work if you have alloy wheels.
The spare tire may also have different size lug nuts if it on a bumper rack.
Remember to check air pressure in the spare on a regular basis.

Best thing to do with those lug nuts with covers is to replace them with solid ones.
