When I blew the right inside dual in April the roadside tech and I lowered the spare and put the bad tire back up without much trouble. Like said above the chain is looped around the frame on the motorhome and through the hand holes in the rim.
Why in the World would "they/you" not use a "Cable Lift" on a spare like a P/U truck??
Lifting a spare from the ground Under a RV "NO WAY"!
And yes you can place a "Safety Chain" around it! Pic of our spare cable lifted into the frame of our RV!
