Hi Lift Jack ?

Just a question for the group here. With the pop in truck camper in, will the factory jack still do the trick if we get a flat or do I need to have something like a Hi Lift Jack? Getting ready to head out for about two weeks on the road and just want to make sure I am getting dialed.

Single axle unit?

Easy Lift Jack - Seasense 50017515

Or a small hydraulic bottle jack.

I would not use the trailer jack.

Apparently the above poster didn't notice this is the truck camper forum

I carry a hydraulic bottle jack in the truck, I would recommend that over the truck's stock jack.

Something like this:
4 Ton Hydraulic Bottle Jack

if you are under the GVWR, the stock truck jack will work.

I have AAA RV and never jack up anything. I let the guy who gets paid to do it change any flats. I keep the traffic off if the guy, tip him a few bucks, and head to town. Yes, it takes a bit longer waiting for the guy, but I am in no hurry, and I prefer to let a younger guy do all that crawling and lifting and grunting.
