Have you tried to remove your Tires?
Just starting our second year with the 5th wheel and decided to get a pressure monitoring system. The sensors are mounted on the end of valve stems and they recommend you use metal valve stems because of the possible flexing. So, yesterday was my day to remove the tires, have the metal valve stems installed and then balanced. We have the forest river rims that require the use of a deep sock (which they provided) to access the lugs.
First I broke a wrench while attemping to loosen the first lug with the Forest River provided socket.
Than with a larger wrench, the side of the Forest River provided socket broke out on the fourth lug.
So, with a new industrial grade 1/2 inch drive deep socket and a 18 inch breaker bar, I was able to get the lugs off.
No way I could have ever done this on the road with the provided socket and the tools I had in the 5th wheel. And since I would tend to put on a spare myself rather than wait for someone to come to change the tire, I am glad I gave it a try here at home where I could get additional tools as needed.
LESSON LEARNED: If you have not done it and think you may need to change your own tires, make sure that you can get them broken free with the tools you have with you. A good idea would be to try to loosen them at least once before you leave. They tell you to check that the lugs are tight, but do not tell you that you may want to see if they are almost frozen in place. I have NEVER had lugs that were this hard to get loose.
