Trailer Aid question

Ok folks. I have used the trailer aid device to raise up my trailer so I could get the leaky tire off. It works like a charm, by the way. Highly recommend it.

I found the little screw that is causing the problem but I rather have the tire patched than plugged. Now the question is, since I won't get the tire fixed until tomorrow, will it be ok to leave the trailer on the trailer aid device until tomorrow afternoon, or should I back it off?

I do have an issue with the sewer connection being very close to the tire that is on the device so I really don't want to back it off until I get the other tire back on since the trailer aid might hit the sewer connection as I back off of it. So hopefully waiting and backing off only once is the preferred way.

Kim,
I don't see where setting on the Trailer Aid will cause a problem, at least not for that short amount of time.

The worst thing that will happen is that the trailer aid will sink & you'll have to deflate your newly patched tire to re-install it. No biggie.

The patched tire is back on and the trailer aid is back in its storage spot ready if needed again so everything went fine.

If the tires are radial that is a good decision, Kim. It is my understanding that radial tires should never be plugged.

My SIL plugged a radial trailer tire before our last trip together to Tenn., and that puppy went flat again on I40 in NC.
