Trailer-Aid Plus (tire changing)
I've been carrying the Trailer-Aid Plus for a while now but never needed to use it. I ordered it through Walmart for about $40.00 and put it in the storage compartment and sort of forgot about it. Yesterday, I had some time to kill since the next campground was only 100 miles away so I figured I better give that thing a try to see if it works before I really needed it. I had read stories about it working on some trailers but not all (something about the type of suspension). I tried it and it worked like a charm. The other tire is about 1 1/2 inches off the ground. I think had I not have gotten the "Plus" model, the tire would have still been touching the ground when fully inflated. I am completely satisfied with this product and hope I never have to use it. It is a comfort to know that I can ramp up to change the tire instead of using a hydraulic jack. I have 2 road side service providers (yep, I said 2) that will come and change a tire but if they say it will be a couple of hours, then I'll change it myself. If they say 30 mins, then I'll ramp up and may wait or not. It's all about options and this is a comforting option to carry around. If the picture loads, the leveling blocks in front of the ramp was my insurance of not driving off the ramp since I travel solo.
