Mine is 15/16" and a 6" extension lets the socket get the plug, with the ratchet wrench clear of piping etc.. If you carry a full set of 1/2" drive sockets up to 1" +/-, and a breaker bar, you will also be covered for most lug nuts on the tow vehicle and trailer.

A crescent wrench will break it loose.

This plastic plug should not be super tight. If it drips, a little tape will stop it.

. . . and round off the corners of the plastic nut, thus making it unusable by the correct socket and extension. Vice grips work too — once or twice.
