New TT and no jack or lug wrench

I just brought our new 21 FBRS Micro Lite TT home today and I just realized that it doesn't have a jack or lug wrench. Seems as tho I remember this is the norm. Anyone know? thank You

It should have come with the stabilizer jack wrench. I've never seen one come with a lug wrench.

Oh, jack. Do you mean a jack for lifting the trailer to change a tire? If so, they don't come with these.

Agreed. For a recent highway-side tire change, I used the jack from my truck (on top of some wood) and have some deep well sockets which I use.

If you got a spare time call it a win and mark it down that way.

Some users have reported not even getting the spare tire.

No jack or lug wrench with my unit which is fine because I would not use them anyway.

Pick up a Trailer-Aid Plus from Amazon and a 4way lug wrench from your local auto parts store.

depending on your rim you may need a deep well thin socket. If it is a steel rim you could use a regular 4 way lug wrench.

When I got my first FR camper in 2008 it did not come with a jack, but did come with 12 months free Coach-Net roadside assistance. I took this as a sign that I should never have to change a camper tire myself. My crossbar lug wrench did come in handy last trip when my electric tongue jack popped its fuse and I had no spare. The wrench made easy work of manually using the jack.

Spare tires are optional they do not normally come with a RV (trailer) automatically. A jack and wrench for changing tires does not normally come with a trailer and is totally on the owner to get & like others I would prefer to use a better one than would be supplied. It would be rare for me to use one supplied with a car or truck either. I carry a heavier jack on the truck always

Four way lug wrench and a 12 ton bottle jack/with a 12X12 piece of plywood to use on soft ground. Or better yet, one of the road service plans.

I suggest you buy a Torque wrench so you can check to confirm the lug nuts on both the trailer and tow vehicle are torqued properly. I bought a 250# rated torque wrench because the longer handle is helpful when tightening bolts on the truck/trailer as well as the 5th wheel hitch and pin box that require torque ratings above 125#. I have never used the factory lug wrenches that are supplied because they can cause damage to the lug nuts when they slip off.

Is your torque drill battery or electric, If electric where do you get the power from unless of course you have generator? If it's battery what make and model?

I'd like to know too. We have the trailer aid vice Jack but had to call local garage to get someone out to take the lug nuts off the tire. Very frustrating!

You may be confusing a torque wrench with an impact wrench. A torque wrench is powered by you... It is just a long handled ratchet wrench that has a rotatable adjustment for setting off different foot/pound of torque settings.
