Tire changing

Does anybody use the lippert 6 point LCI for a quick tire change on a level pad? I would just use it long enough to pull the tire off and put the new tire on, when using my bottle jack the suspension lifts enough to make it difficult as the fender skirt is in the way.

I used mine for some emergency suspension repairs....

Also use it to grease wheel hubs, suspension wet bolts, etc. So yes, I would use it to lift the trailer to change a tire without a second thought.

Yeah I wouldn't hesitate to use mine either. I have been on sites that the tires have been off the ground for the whole weekend without issue.

The Lippert guys told me off the record they have used the hydraulic system to support the units at times while working on the axel. Is it electric or hydraulic? I would say if you have a lighter weight rig with a six point system you would be fine. Those systems are rated for over 20,000lbs. If I remember correctly. My Herritage Glen only weighs 11,000 or so. I needed the 6 point because of length.
