What is it?

Came with my Kodiak 291 RESL. Fits the lug nuts but waaaaay too flimsy. Can bend it rather easily with any torque applied.

Thanks!!

Good thought but no, use a drill and flexible bit supplied for that

...should be the stabilizer crank, which will also crank the slide in 'manual' mode.... and I think fit the lugs 'cause all 3/4". .....Not that I would use it as a lug wrench

I have one just like it, my spare tire is underneath and this is used to crank it down.

Got one, it's for the manual stabilizers, have never used it. It also fits the electric tongue jack if it ever pukes.

I have electric auto levelers, they have a square insert to manual crank so I'd be missing the 3/4 to square socket thingy. Like wise for the tongue jack.... a square inney thingy. Anybody get accessories with theirs? Perhaps because they went with an auto leveling system in the 2017s, they might have still included this for the manual stabilzers of old.

Btw, nothing to do with the slide... I have the crappy cable system with all the workings on the inside..... Couldn't get that crank in there if you tried. Also spare tire is on the rear bumper.

that is a manual stabilizer crank which is 3/4" socket... it is also used for a lot of spare tires that are mounted underneath the trailers

My dealer gave me a flex shaft and bit to use for the slide. It goes top center inside of my aerolite 282.

TH4, I found 4 of the flex shafts bits in the fridge when it was delivered..... I hope I never need to use them and have to rip off the wood valence to get to the motor.....

It's for lowering the spare tire on models with the spare underneath. The crank to lower the spare is behind the steps to the garage.
