Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Which one are you talking about the Trailer Air or the Jack makes a difference.

I have used the "plus" version successfully to change a flat on a previously owned 28' TT and was really happy I had it. Easy to use. I do recommend the "plus" version because it gives and extra inch of lift which was important in my case. I still have it and have used it to change tires on a utility trailer that I own.

I used it on my old 30’ tt (7300 lb loaded weight). It did not raise the other axle off the ground. Have not tried it on my fiver.

Just make Sure the "Trailer Aid Plus" will lift your Trailer! On some Leaf Sprung axles they will NOT allow the "Flat tire " to clear for Spare to be installed! Check Before you NEED it! Youroo!!

I tested mine and had to put down a level of legos to get it off ground. Also had to cram a stubby screwdriver into the legos to give some grip for trailer aid other wise it slipped.

Practice first to know your equipment
