You really do not need a jack to lift the "Flat tire" on the trailer....Just run the good tire up on some 2 x 6's etc (or your plastic levelers) after you loosen the nuts on the flat rim

Of course, this only works if you've got TWO axles!

Where do you guys buy shorter lengths?
I got some by stopping by a construction site. They gave about 10' of red and blue.

I carry an OBDII scanner in the TV most of the time. Not just for trips.

Any plumbing supply should have 10 foot lengths available.

Small, but I found important. Grab a bag of spare hose washers and keep them where you can find them. My black tank flush hose washer fell out somewhere, having an extra sure was handy!

All I need is electric tape and a penny. Watched a lot of MacGyver in my younger years.
And some apple pie in case the penny and electric tape don't work.
