changing tires

2005 jay feather exp 19h. I read about putting a ramp under one wheel to raise the other for a flat fix. I have a need to do this on both sides in order to change out two front and then two rear tires. It would be hooked to the TV and supproted by one axle for approx. one hour each time. I wanted your thoughts on this so that I wouldn't do something to damage anything like the frame or the axle bearing the extra load. Thanks, rbrandon

I don't know about Jaycos, but I've used a Trailer-Aid (http://www.traileraid.com/) to service my wheels, tires, and brakes like you describe on my trailers many times.

Thanks

Thanks for such a quick respnse. The link you provided shows exactly the situation I am going to be in, so I guess all I need to do is get out there and make a couple of 2x8 ramps. Thanks again, rbrandon

I would only be worried about it if I was driving down the road on 3 wheels..
