I have a small bottle jack and small piece of 4x4 wood. But I was just wondering:
Has anybody tried this with Lynx Levelers?
The standard Trailer Aid gives 4.5" of lift. My 10-pack of Lynx Levelers gives the same 4.5" in a 4-3-2-1 pyramid.

I've used a 5-block high ramp with LynxLevelers and my second tire was still firmly on the ground. I think that even with the Trailer Aid, I'd have to do something to raise it. Don't own one, though.

Exactly what happened with us and now we just don't travel at night. Our accident didn't tear up a tire, but it did tear up a good chuck of lower fascia on the 4 month old trailer.

I'm blessed I don't have to use a jack anymore, it stays home more room for beer

I suggest trying out the trailer aid plus before you actually need it. It definitely sounds like the easiest and safest way to go, if it works. It must do the job on lots of other TTs, but it doesn't lift high enough for mine to get the flat tire off the ground. Ended up giving it to my brother for his TT. Some have told me the distance between the front and rear tire makes the difference.

Be advised the Trailer Aid will not work with TTs having the spread axles such as mine. You may be able to stack enough blocks in step fashion to make it work, I haven't tried but I did try the Trailer Aid and it didn't work.

I use a Trailer Aid with my torsion axles. However, my axles are NOT spread. It works great.
