Replacing tires on a 2016 26RLWS

We will be replacing our tires soon. I want to make sure the service center doing it lifts the RV correctly. I've seen several threads but wasn't sure if my specific model was different. Does anyone have experience with how the shop should lift the RV to change the tires? Thank you in advance.

Just changed out 4 Castle Rock tires for Endurance ST's on my Flagstaff 25BDS. I was on my way from MI to SC and had a puncture to sidewalk on Castle Rock..unrepairable. Put on spare in Nashville Koa. Replaced with 4 Goodyear's n Beaufort SC. I used my Trailer Aid tire ramp at the dealer because I didnt want to take chances with my torsion axles. Plus, they didnt have a jack to reach frame. Dealer was great! Got all 4 done in 30 min or less. I moved trailer on and off ramp as they changed the tires. $125 each installed. I also used ramp to change tire in Nashville. It's a must have item in your repair toolkit.

Tell them to jack on the frame, not any part of the Dexter Torflex axles. Pick a spot on the main frame in front of or behind the axles.

Good call on going up one load range. Sometime in 2017 (I think) the RVIA changed their recommendations on tire load ratings and the manufacturers started installing tires with a higher load rating, so new ones today are more likely to be adequate for loads that people actually put on their tires.

May I ask what size the new D's are. I have a 2016 27RLWS and it has 205 75 14's. I do not believe there is an room to go bigger. I assume you have the same size and hoping they would be available in a D load range. We just got back from Arizona and California and put at least 5000 miles on my tires that had at least 20K on them already. I am looking to replace them before another major trip.

Endurance E rated 10 ply 235X80 Seems to be a great tire.

That won't fit these trailers.

Tires

Wise to be concerned. I use an Anderson drive on jack. Highly reccomend it. When I changed my tires to GY Endurance, I took ramp to the tire store w/ me and was driving it up for each tire change. The tech got in a hurry and put a jack under the support behind the axel. W/O me knowing, bent the support. After about 1500 miles on a 3500mi. trip, I realized the wheels were not inline when I turned in for gas. I had a new thicker support bar welded in when I got home at a trailer repair shop. I have the Dexter rubber hub axels, I do not see any good place to put a floor jack under it. WATCH THEM!
