First trip out in new TT.

Last weekend was our first trip out in our new TT. everything went great until it was time to go. I got a flat tire on the trailer, but had no way to change it. TT didn't come with tire changing tools. No one in the park had a lug wrench that fit, so I had to call AAA. Now I keep an impact driver in the trailer!!!

Sorry that you had a problem with the tire. At least it sounds that everything went well. I also found out last year when we had our TT that a normal tire wrench didn't work. I was fortunate that I found this out at home and put one in. There always seems to be something we need. I guess its part of RVing

I carry a large 4-way lug wrench and a 6 ton bottle jack for the truck and trailer. also an assortment of "lumber" to support the jack. You also need to carry reflectors or flares in case of a road break down.
