You can lift one tire up on a dbl axle Trailer and normally the other tire will be off the ground enough to change a flat. Might have to put one or two boards under it first but will be lots easier than jacking up with a jack.

What I was saying is that I didn't think Andersen allowed the levellers to be used as jacks. I thought you weren't allowed to use just one at a time with a dual axle; must use both. They sell the Rapid Jack for the purpose of a jack which looks similar to the levellers but it is much heavier duty and larger. We bought it for the exact reason you said, much easier than jacking up with a regular jack.

I never saw that about the no jack use. That may be lawyer talk. I saw some folks this weekend in Port A only using one of these and the other tire was off the ground. I really think supporting both axles is better.

I don't recall if I actually read it or if I'm just making it up...ha ha...after seeing the Rapid Jack and how heavy duty it is, the levellers look a little pathetic to be used as a jack. LOL

I'm not even sure I recall instructions coming with my Andersen set. I'll look in the bag this weekend when we are out and see if I actually read that somewhere.
