Another newbie question

Just joined and just purchased our 2006 Winnebago Outlook 325f, 9930 miles and 1.6 hrs on gen, probably first of many questions. Do most class c's come with a jack of some kind or since the units are heavy is a jack an extra that the owner needs if they want to be able to change a tire? I have looked pretty extensively throughout the MH and can not find a jack anywhere.

Glad you're aboard. Congrats on the new to you rig. Depending on tire size and wheel type most wheels are difficult to change on your own, especially on a busy hwy. But a good bottle jack that is rated to lift your GAWR could be added. Most have a Emergency Road Service plan covering this. JMHO. Enjoy your adventures.
Have a wonderful day!

To answer your jack question.. Some do, Some do not,, Check the driver's side fender well engine compartment side (If it is a Ford Chassis)

If not, I suggest a floor type jack, at least 1/2 the weight rating of your Class C... (I drive a class A and carry a 12 ton Air/Hydraulic bottle jack, Very easy to jack-jack the RV up)

I also recommend an air impact wrench for lug removal 1/2 or 3/4 inch (3/4 is needed for 22.5" wheels, and likely will work better on 19s as well)

True story: Had to change one on a Ford F-350 by hand (How I know where jack goes) and snapped one lug, tightend the others so well that even the tire man's 3/4 Air impact had trouble loosening it later... Suffice to say I was a bit upset over having to change the tire.
Home is where I park it!

For me, this is a AAA job (and not JUST cause I'm lazy - which I am - but my tires require something a little different to remove)

How long is your unit? Can't remember if you said.

And welcome to the road! There's NOT WAY you can't love this! I'm typing while looking out the windshield at the first hints of the Smokey Mountains beginning to appear in view.

Changing tires on a large MH can be a daunting project. The safety issue of having it jacked up and trying to take your lug nuts off makes it a job. Most of us in here have a roadside assistance company that will do the work for us. You will see AAA and CoachNet as the two biggest providers.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!!

Welcome and glad to meet you!

Most of the bigger MH's do not even carry spare tires. That's why we pay for roadside assistance. They bring tires if we need (we have to pay for the tire) and install them.

thank you for all the info. Kinda thought they may not come with the jack due to the issues. Will look into Coach Net, seems to be the most recommended assistance. Thanks again
