Tool kit missing

I just discovered the tool kit is missing for my 3611rl Montana. We bought it used two months ago and it never crossed my mind to look for the speed handle to lower the spare tire. I have a torque wrench for the lug nuts and that's it. Can anyone help me remember what other tools were supposed to be with the camper when I bought it?

I can buy a speed handle with the socket, no problem. I just don't want to be caught out on the road needing something, don't like that kind of surprise.

The only tool that came with our 15 - HC 353RL was the speed wrench for the jacks. Nothing else. Our spare is on a slide under the trailer with a knob to release. a Tire wrench is the only thing needed.


Good luck

Never got a lug wrench with any of our units, just the speed handle for the spare tire, and in the old days a speed handle for the rear stablizers. We did get the flex extension with our 2015 for manual operation of the slides.

I had asked that question during our pre inspection and the reply was your truck has the tools you need to change a tire. It made sense at the time.

Depending on your abilities and desire, you should carry anything that will enable you to do what you are able, jacks, wrenches, screwdrivers, etc. There isn't even a basic set of tools with these rigs, and if there was, they would be the cheapest Chinese tools they could buy, and you would probably get hurt using them. Just my opinion

I bought me a millwaukee electric impact wrench, 13/16 deep socket and extension for the trailer and a 7/8 deep socket for the truck. Also bought a torque wrench to keep everything tight.Like previous comment,you could get hurt using any tools that came with your rv so buy your own that fit the job.

@ rohrmann


You hit that one on the head - tools would be like the kits in most motorcycles. don't pull to hard on a wrench if you don't want skinned knuckles or to be sitting on your backside.


At least they give you the flex drivers to manually move the slides, but not sure how you would turn it!
