Could someone who lives close to ependydad go over there and see if there are two legs sticking out from under a trailer that is sitting on the ground?

In a emergency I have used the Jack that came with my dually has saddle built into it that fits between the shakle bolts and it lifts just fine just lift it enough to get tire off.
At home I have a 50 ton hydraulic to lift whole side of trailer then use modifyed jack stands to hold up frame while I work on it.

ependydad has been putting down 1,400 square feet of sod and ran out about 200 square feet short. Sadly - the camper is exactly how it was left last night. And UPS still hasn't delivered the 4th tire. (even madder)

UPS normally doesn't deliver on Sat. Looks like another night job Mon. Gives you time to turn the trailer around so you can work on the curb side.

It sounds like you're just starting to notice that you got the 3-for-the-price-of-4 special!

So the 3 new tires are on. I didn't realize I'd purchased a 3-for-the-low-price-of-4 deal. They were really tricky sending me an invoice that showed 4 and shipping info for 4. :-)

But, I did have my father-in-law in town and he helped guide me and make sure I wasn't being stupid.

But- the bubble tire... Oh, that's about to be a thread!

So I don't believe I've seen anyone mention the Trailer Aid products for jacking your trailer in this thread. Is that a possibility for an emergency tire changeout?

I don't like the idea of carrying that much weight on one tire for more than just a few minutes, but thought it might be good for a quick roadside changeout??

With my EqualFlex suspension, I'm not sure that the traileraid would give enough lift to the one tire. I used 5" of Lynx blocks made into a ramp) and it wasn't enough (rear tire sat firmly on the ground). I had to add a block of wood on top of that to get me there.

Good point.

I have the standard type suspension under my trailer. I wonder how much difference that makes?

Not sure, but I was sure surprised when 5" didn't clear. It took all of the 3 packs of LynxLevelers that I had to be able to get up that high and still have a smooth ramp.
