Default Jack up trailer

How do you jack up the trailer to change a tire?

Scissor jack under the axle, near the affected wheel. Never use the stabilizer jack to lift the trailer.

Default Jacking for a flat

A lot depends on the local terrain where you have the flat, but driving the other wheel on the same side as the flat onto four Lynx levelers (about 4" high) will get the flat high enough. BUT, make sure the wheels are securely chocked.

I actually carry two sets of these marvelous little plastic blocks. They serve a multitude of uses; changing tires, stabilizer jack spacers (stabilizers are most effective if not extended beyond 50%), sewer hose interim supports, steps (work marvelously for adding an extra step when the slope of your spot leaves your steps a tad too high) all in addition to their main use - leveling With space at a premium in a TT and with a little imagination, these little blocks can replace many tools that usually only get used infrequently and take up space and add weight.
