Changing Flat Tire
« on: January 14, 2013, 09:23:07 AM »
I have a new to me, but used, 2010 Coleman Santa Fe.  As far as I can tell, it did not come with a jack or lug wrench.  Before our first trip, I want to ensure I can change a flat while on the road.  Is there a special jack for a Coleman pop-up and is there a special place for it to be stored, or do I just keep it in the TV or somewhere I can get to it while the camper is not set-up? I found a PDF of the owners manual on-line but it makes no mention of changing a flat tire.   Thanks in advance for your help.

Sears, harbor freight, northern tool all sell hydraulic jacks in a variety of sizes.  On of which will be sufficient to jack up your tent trailer.  Also buy a cheap 1/2 inch torque wrench a 6 Inch extension and the correct size socket and you will be ready when the time comes.  This setup is also useful for checking the lug nuts torque every couple hundred miles of travel, before you leave home and camp site.
