Fleetwood Class A motorhome wrench

We just purchased a 2011 Fleetwood Encounter class A and in one of the bins
was a wrench that I have no idea what it is used for. We have no way of
getting ahold of previous owner either. See attached photo and any help would be appreciated. Thanks

If you have a spare tire hanging under the frame, that would likely be the crank to insert in the winch that lowers the tire.


That could also be handle for a scissor jack.

Is it to crank in the slides if they quit working?

Call Fleetwood and forward the picture to them.

Welcome to iRV2.

I think Trackrig is onto something with the slides , I've seen a similar crank for use with older Lippert slides.

Is it not the crank handle that one sticks in the grill to turn the engine over to start 😙😁

thanks for the info,there are no scissor jacks and the spare is on the rear wall but i'm thinking it is for the slide also however the rear slide requires a 3/4 inch socket but I haven't figured out the main slide yet as it is not easy to get to its motor so maybe that is it. I will try send to Fleetwood.

I don't think it has anything to do with the slides. If you have Power Gear electric slides they require a 3/4" wrench like you said. It looks like an awning crank or something the PO had that didn't apply to the MH.

Got a callback from Fleetwood and they say they have never placed a wrench like it into any of their motorhomes so probably the previous owner had a jack or something he removed but forgot the wrench. Thanks for the info

I'd put my bet on a awning crank.

Thanks for the update. I didn't think it was a FW issued item.
