Flat tire

We got home from a week long camp trip yesterday & the trailer is sitting in our driveway. Today I went out & found that one of the tires on our Roo was flat. It was up when we got home so it went down overnight. I was trying to find where to jack it, but couldn't find any info on this. Then I remembered that we have the one year of roadside assistance that Forest River provides. So I'll give them a call tomorrow & have someone else change the tire for me. Any other suggestions or has anyone else used this service?

Should you need to do it yourself later on down the road, this thread might help answer some of your questions.

proper way to jack up Roo to remove tire?

I'm curious if the roadside assistance people will know not to jack up the trailer by the axle...keep us posted.

Well, better in your driveway than on the highway! I hope it's fixed quickly and you're back on the road soon!

Just a followup on this. I called for the roadside assistance and they sent someone out to change the tire. As I watched where he jacked the trailer it made sense that where he chose to jack the trailer was the only logical place to place the jack. It all happened quickly and easily. I found it to be a great service had we have been on the highway instead of in the driveway. The tire had a nail in it and has been repaired and now rides as the spare as the spare is now ready to hit the road.
