Take tire off and take it to your favorite tire repair place.

Does the trailer tongue need to be disengaged from the hitch when using the jack to remove the tire? I'm on an incline and would rather not !!

If needed, would you just use your truck's tire jack?

I would yes. If it's short enough to fit.

Lesson learned....every trailer needs to have a hydraulic bottle jack in it's storage for this exact reason.

I would say the easiest way to change a tire on a dual axle trailer (which it looks like the Roo is) would be to get one of these and carry it along all the time:

Rhino Ramps, Set of 2 - Hopkins 11909MIE - Chocks & Levelers - Camping World

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.
