I also need thin wall, deep well sockets for my travel trailer. I carry a set of standard and metric sockets and a 25" breaker bar. I have pulled to the side of the road to help people a couple of times. I have also driven right past some people because I don't like something about how the situation looks.
I also carry a small compressor because half the time. the spare is severely low on air pressure.

I carry a 1/2 breaker bar, 1/2 battery impact, 1/2 torque wrench, 1/2" extension and the sockets that fit my truck and the trailer. Never leave home without them.

4-way wrenches are often too large to fit in the hole in the rim on modern aluminum wheels.

Kinda think this sort of thing should have been figured out long ago.

Your fifth wheel is relatively light, so 1/2"-20 studs.

To answer your question: 13/16", 6 point deep chrome socket, 1/2" x 6" extension, and 1/2" x 18" long breaker bar. I use a 16" long ratchet on mine and it works fine.

I took the OPs question to mean "I have a flat right now, where is my lug wrench?"

Like mentioned above, the time to find out if you have the proper tools, to do this, is before it becomes an emergency.

Like I mentioned earlier, your truck tire iron may work in this emergency.

I carry a breaker bar, and correct size 6 point HD impact socket, and a torque wrench for tire changes while traveling.

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.

A year model or trailer brand doesn't tell us what size lug nuts any trailer has.
You have the trailer so its easy to find that out on your own.

I have several 4 way lug wrenches. The one that fits the lugs on my 5th wheel rv trailer stays in the trailer. I also keep one in the wifes 1500 chevy...one in my 2500 Dodge truck ....and one in my old 3500 drw chevy beater....two in my garage.

TSC stores (tractor supply) or a farm and ranch store or a automotive parts store may carry the size(s) you need.

The quickest way to find out what size socket you need for any hex nut or bolt is to just measure across two opposite flats.
