Lug Nuts and Stabilizer Jacks

Picking up our 2021 International 27FB Twin on Thursday and taking it for a quick shakedown trip. Trying to pack a "minimal" amount of tools for the initial trip.

Specifically, what size are the lug nuts and what size is the nut on the end of the stabilizer jack (to raise and lower)?

Thanks!

Assuming it hasn't changed from 2019, stabilizer is 3/4 (19mm) and lug nuts are 13/16, but you need a thin wall socket for the lug nuts. This one worked for me: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Do the new AS's have a one piece lug w/o the 'cover'?

But why 13/16 which requires a thin wall socket?

The MaGard we had to get are 3/4".

I believe it's totally dependent upon what wheels the airstream comes with. The International has aluminum wheels and they may be deep-set. That's why I specified "International" knowing that the wheels may be different. I'm just packing the torque wrench and an extension. I'll bet the selling dealer will have sockets that fit. I'll go ahead and bring 13/16" and 3/4" deep sockets that I have in my tool box.

Thanks everyone!

Yes. Thin wall socket needed for lack of clearance in the wheel. I have a Flying Cloud. International may be different

I have a 2019 International 27'. I use a 13/16 regular socket (not impact) with a torque wrench to check mine with and it works just fine. 3/4" on my cordless drill, set to 17 for the stabilizers.

Our 2020 28 International requires a thin wall 13/16 socket. It's simply a matter of the alloy wheel design and the clearance provided to properly seat.
I bought mine at a local NAPA store and be sure to include a 6 inch extension to clear the center cap of the alloy rim. I carry a breaker bar to ensure they are snug and use the torque wrench to calibrate to ensure tightness back at home.

Update: The 2021 International does not require a thin-wall socket. The lug nuts are easily accessible. They are also one-piece!
