Emergency Jack

Hi Everyone,
Do you carry an emergency jack in case you can't get in touch with roadside assistance? We have a wildwood xlite 18.5

I will not wait for a tire service truck so I carry a 3 ton bottle jack and an electric impact wrench hooked to a 5500 watt genset.

May I suggest.

I carry the trailer aid plus along with a twelve ton bottle jack. Most of the time it is a lot quicker to change a tire then wait several hours for road service.

I used to carry an 8 ton bottle jack, until it developed a leak and drained it's fluid all over the inside of my RamBox. It's still on my to-do list to get a replacement so for now I'm relying on my truck's jack to handle it in a pinch.

(Note to self, I really gotta go get myself another jack!)

I carry the bottle jack. Comes in handy when the tongue slips off the blocks when you forget to chock the wheels...doh)
