Spare Tire hardware
« on: September 07, 2020, 04:05:07 PM »
Hello - we have a 2013 Quicksilver 8.1 that we bought used 4 or 5 years ago.  We love it!  Driving back to Indiana from Glacier NP last week, I decided to replace the well-worn-but-not-quite-yet-dangerous tires.  It was easy enough to find a place in Rapid City to get that done.  However, I had forgotten that ours did not come with a spare tire.  I can see the housing on the underside where one would go, but am not sure what hardware is needed.  Could someone with a spare tire take a picture of your spare tire in place so that I can get an idea of what I need to attach one to our camper?  Thanks!

It's just a bolt through one lug hole and into the fitting that's welded to the bottom of the floor. The OEM bolt has a large black plastic knob on it, but a regular bolt will do just fine.
