I've got the Trailer Aid, but I haven't had to use it yet, so I really can't say much about it.

Wood blocks, pull non flat tire on them.
Should be 3 inch's or better.
Unless you have torsion suspension or a single axle TT that is

I have used the trailer aid and it works well. I purchased the one with the extra lift to it. It is light and easy to store.

I have the trailer aid and have used it. Worked great never had to get on the ground to get jack under the trailer. Just set it in front of the good tire and pull forward or back on depending which tire is flat. Lifts the other off the ground.

What would you use for a single axle flat?

Also, is there a "good" link to a video for how to change?

(hasn't happened yet...and I honestly haven't even thought much about it BUT...isn't that when "murphy's law" strikes?!)

I don't use the truck's jack for the truck let alone the trailer. I carry a floor jack & a bottle jack. Might look into a trailer aid though.

I stack up enough lynx levelers under the good tire to suspend the flat. It doesn't take that many. Not sure if that's recommended for a torsion axle but if one tire is flat the one next to it is already carrying all the load on that side anyway.

Isn't that for a dual axle trailer? I have a single axle, 6502 Vibe.

Try one of these if you have a spring suspension. Not for torsion axles.

We carry a small 3 ton floor jack for the trailer and the truck.
