    Tire Hardware

    A couple of weeks ago we took our 2nd trip in our new to us Pioneer RG26 Toy Hauler and, unfortunately, had a blowout on the highway. We quickly learned that the new to us toy hauler had no spare and no tire changing tools. Thankfully we got a local mobile service to come and install a new tire. Thus it leads me to this:

    1) I know that I need to purchase a mounted spare for the RV so that we have one. That doesn't seem to be too difficult.
    2) I need to purchase a lug wrench that fits.

    That leads me to my question. Does anyone know what size lug wrench I need to purchase for the toy hauler? It is in storage right now, otherwise I would test it on my sockets until I found the right size and go from there.


    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Tire Hardware

    I would suggest getting a battery operated 1/2Ē impact wrench along with a selection of impact sockets. Not sure what size your lug nuts are, but Iím sure someone will chime in. The impact comes in handy for a number of things. Also, you might want to buy a hydraulic jack if you donít have one. Just make sure itís heavy enough for either the tow vehicle or trailer.

    You also need a proper torque wrench. Do not rely on hand tightening or impact wrench to get it correct.

    I'm afraid we have none of these specs. I have no problem buying the necessary items. But as I mentioned I don't even know what lug size they are or what they would need to be torqued to.

    Every Heartland I have owned, the torque has been 120 foot pounds. The lug nuts on my Landmark are 7/8. I have a craftsman torque wrench.

    My Landmark lugs on 16Ē wheels are 3/4. Suggest you get a kit with multiple socket sizes.

    My 2018 Bighorn uses a 7/8 socket. Be careful,using an impact driver (gun etc.) on the factory lug nuts, they are capped nuts and can be damaged. Safer way to handle that situation is to but a long breaker bar.

    Re: Tire Hardware

    You can find a great lug socket set a Harbor Freight in a plastic case. They also have a nice extension for it as well at a reasonable price. Just remember, to set the torque wrench to zero when storing. If you do not, they will all go out of calibration over time. The size of the nut should be stamped on the lug. If not, take one to an auto parts store and they can check it for you.

    Re: Tire Hardware

    Harbor Freight has a 1/2" "Earthquake" impact for like 230 bucks (may find some others cheaper) which I carry along with:

    12 ton bottle jack
    wood blocking for jack if the 6pt level up won't work or need to use on truck
    Tq wrench that goes up past 160 Ft Lbs (Kobalt)
    Impact sockets for truck and TV (1 for each lug nut size)
    Neon Yellow safety vest
    Tri angles (Like semis use)

    Re: Tire Hardware

    Some good ideas mentioned but since you are looking for the size of the nuts you might change the title of your thread to something like "RG26 Lug Nuts".
