So with the six point system can a side be raised enough to make an emergency tire change?
Yes, but you may have to work from side to side. If your RV is not level enough. Letís say you are off the side of the road and the tire damages is on the driver road side and your RV is leaning toward the non road side. When you start to raise the the road side the LCI system will only allow about 2 degrees or so of angle and will stop. If you are in this situation you need to lift the non road side first. This may require you putting some 2x6ís to get it up, depending on tilt. I had to do this on along I-75 a year or so ago.
Iíve seen threads where some folks had problems with the torsion system getting turned inside out or something like that but I donít see why that couldnít happen anytime you jack the wheels off the ground?
Also you will hear from the folks who say donít do it because the jacks may fail. If that is a worry, then donít ever walk under the front of your fiver to get in the front basement. Jacks could fail and break your neck.
Long story short.. I have used my jacks many times to lift tires off ground. Heck, sometimes auto-level will lift them off the ground. Get out the popcorn..
