When I had a pop up, I used the stabilizer jack like this one to change flat tires. Unhitch (keep the chain on), lower the tongue, extend the stabilizer, raise the tongue with the tongue jack, change the tire. I don't know how long or low or heavy your trailer is, but it easily worked with my Coleman.https://www.amazon.com/Dumble-Stabil...0-4513d670b6bc

30 inch jacks may work. Problem is the extra length when collapsed may cause them to stick out from the sides of the trailer. A real shin buster.

But I like the capability with ours, they deploy via the remote control. No bending, no grunting, no tools required, no storage space consumed. Push a button they are down, push a button and they are up. Nice!

Same thing I used Bob. In 2010 we parked in an uneven spot in Decorah, IA. I hit the button, did the walk around 2-3 minutes later and found 2 wheels off the ground. I left it that way for the weekend. It held fine. I had the small screw jacks on a couple pop ups in the early 60's. I never had anything with stabilizers.
