Best way to fix a flat is to get rid of it and replace it with a new tire of the same brand ,LR.and tread design. The inside patch is the best way to patch it,but I wont run a patched tire any further than I have to to get a replacement. A patch job would be OK for a spare,butthat would be it.

do NOT NOT NOT jack a trailer axle from the middle. get your jack under the leaf spring perch before jacking. More than one axle has been bent and ruined by sloppy jacking procedures.

Its always best to read the manual and crawl under and look things over in your driveway at least once, instead of waiting till you are on the side of the highway to figure out where to put the jack.

You loosen the lug nuts on the flat, then pull forward or back up onto the ramp with the other axle's tire, leaving the flat dangling, pull it off, put spare on, tighten lug nuts, move trailer down off the ramp, and retighten. No jacking required.
These do not work for all dual axle trailers. My old tt had the wide stance. I drove the front tire on and the rear tire stayed on the ground. Had to Jack it up instead.
