spindle nut socket size

Going to check the wheel bearings, and wondering what size socket the spindle nuts take on my Sovereign. I probably have it, but I don't want to have to run to get one with the trailer on jack stands.
Thanks again, folks.

I just use a large adjustable wrench but, would think it is 1 1/4 to 1 3/8.

while it is a nut, it is only tightened 'snug' and not like other nuts like lug nuts. too tight and you will wipe out the bearings in short order.

A pair of channel lock pliers is all you need.
