Changing flat tire

Anyone use the 6 point level up system to change a flat tire?

Yes I have, but please heed this advice. Only do one side at a time. I am sure there will be some that chime in you can raise the entire rig off the ground, I say knock your socks off.

Here is what happened to me. Both sides were raised off the ground during a set up, by my auto level. When that happened the tires were allowed to drop, the front equa flex shackles flipped down. They will not reset on their own. To make a long story short, had to call a local repair guy. Luckily he knew how to fix it. 2 hours later and several hundred bucks, we were good to go. His words of wisdom, Never ever raise both sets of tires off the ground at the same time.
