Just kidding. I neither stayed up nor stayed sober.

Man, I stayed up late, and without drinking, on New Year's Eve, just so I could be last, and it didn't happen !!

Quote from: @tlbones" source="/post/26755/thread" timestamp="1483285592Mine takes a 1-1/16 socket.     You'll likely need an extension also.   I think you'll have a much easier time if you pick up a socket...right tool for the job thing.  Walmart may have them in the RV section or in hardware.   wrap the threads with some white plumbers tape first also if you didn't already.  
Thanks for the sizing. I'll be going by a Walmart tomorrow on my way home from work. I'll pick one up then. Funny how I have all kinds of tools yet for this camper I have to keep buying little things like this socket.

My next tool will be a 4 way lug wrench for the wheels. I don't have one of those yet either.  :)

You don't need. The crank for the stab jacks is the same size as the lug nuts. 3/4". At least it is on my 14dbs.

Do yourself a favor and pick up a breaker bar for removing and a torque wrench for reinstalling. Harbor Freight is a good place to get these (and the socket, for that matter).

No response or add'l comments so far

[quote source="/post/26752/thread" author="@charliem" timestamp="1483280076"][font size="3"]I suppose it is possible that this forum URL will continue to work but Thor/LL will administer it. Content would be under their control so only time will tell what happens. Maybe I will get to 2K posts although that's a dubious goal  ;)
[/font][/quote]I dare them. I double dare them. Say "Thor" just one more time.

Oh, we don't go there.
[quote source="/post/26720/thread" author="@david" timestamp="1483195581"]Be very sure that you have 12 gauge wire in all of the circuits including branches before you replace a 15 amp breaker with a 20 amp. The NEC requires a minimum of 14 gauge for a 15 amp breaker and 12 gauge for a 20 amp breaker. LL may have upped the gauge from NEC requirements, but check.

David[/quote]Exactly. The wiring may or may not be up to snuff, but it has to be checked and it could require replacement (or segments of it could).
