Or simply try to slip on both SAE and metric sockets to see which fits better.

And I suggest once you know the size, instead of removing from your set to carry you get that size, a long breaker bar, and extension for socket and if needed the bar.
BTW, I use extension to hold socket in line with stud.

I carry a collapsible 4 way lug wrench. It has a button that allows it to scissor spin down to a small package. 3 sizes AND it has a 1/2 inch socket adaptor for a deep well socket if you need a thin wall for a tight aluminum wheel. Best of all worlds you can find on amazon for about $40.

I would test that wrench in the driveway before putting much faith in it. They are very weak where they fold.

I have a 2008 Cruiser 5th wheel, does anyone know what size the lug nuts are and where is the wrench to change my flat tire?
Thank you.


"Where is the wrench"...? Are you asking where the "factory" lug nut wrench is on your camper? Because there is none. It is not like a car (or truck) that comes with a jack and lug nut wrench behind the seat... TT or Fivers don't come with those, you have to get your own.

If you are lucky, your tow vehicle's wrench and jack will work with your camper. Otherwise you need to buy what you need. If you are having trouble figuring out sizes, try an auto parts store (NAPA or other) on a slow day and ask the counter people for help. To be polite, assuming they go out and help figure what you need, you should buy the parts / equipment from them.

Do you have a local repair garage that knows you? Pull in there, they will probably be glad to help figure out what you need.

Been using it for five years no issue, I have multiple trailers so it is the best tool for my use. The connection is in the center and is quite strong.

My son got me the cheapest battery powered impact wrench that Harbor Freight sells.

keep the battery in the charger, plugged in in the basement when in camp and it is always ready.

(Works on the stabilizer jacks, too.)
