No not me but a person on the Jayco Travel Trailer Club facebook site had an issue with Good Sam roadside service over last Easter weekend. They tried to get service with a tire failure and Good Sam told them they couldnt help due to it being a holiday weekend. Another member complained that they had the same thing happen to them over a 4th of July weekend.

After two flats on a Rockwood travel trailer in 14 months, I traded it for a Precept 31ul.

I do the same thing, I'm pretty sure that the manual says not to overload one of the axles by doing this. I already have a bottle jack and wheels chocks for trailer maintenance, so I just bring them along in the bed of my truck.

So, Travelbug422's pic was not really clear to me. You just raise the non-flat tire on the same side as the flat, and the flat one comes up enough to change? 'Cause if we didn't have to carry a floor jack, it would save a lot of room and weight in the truck!

That is correct

Nice, but it seems that it would not fit between tires if you need to raise the front axle. Best I can tell is that it wouldn't fit between my tandem axles. Do you just use it on the rear tire?

Happy RVing,
Jeff

I have a White Hawk with the wide stance axels. I can place in front of the tire or behind the rear tire. Either I'll back up on it or pull up on it. Depends on the tire.

Duh.
Hadn't thought about backing on to the front tire. Thanks.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

Jeez, not my day for thinking straight. What I meant was pulling forward onto the front tire.
Happy RVing,
Jeff
