I purchased a Trailer Aid Plus and keep it in one of the storage bays. It's similar to the lego levellers except it's sole purpose is to just drive the good tire onto it so you can change the flat one. I figured if I'm on the road I don't want to mess with jacks and levellers. I can't wait to try it out...NOT.

While on the subject, what is the jacking point? Can we jack up the axel near the wheel? Will it take the load? I don't think jacking the frame will do it.

tip: using a bottle jack carry a good pad to put it on in case you're on soil or you just jack the jack into the ground.

Jack placement

When jacking on axle jack as close to wheel as possible.

Be careful about Jack placement. I believe your owners manuel will tell you place the jack under the frame not the axle, Check your owners manual

We use a "jiffy jack". It's a drive on/off trailer aid. Check it out on valleyvet.com. We've used it and it works great.
