Changing a tire on a 29RLDS

I just got to my RV spot in Seal Beach Calif. When I started to open the slide I noticed the front tire on the left side looked low.(It has 64 lbs. last night when I checked it last night). It had 20 lbs in it now. A friend had a 12 ton bottle jack we used to jack the trailer up. Had to put in a couple places before we found a place that would work. Where do you place your jack if and when you get a flat and what type of jack do you use?
Also the lug nuts were sooooo tight it 2 of us on a 4 way lug wrench to get the lugs loose.
And of course I'm guilty like 90% of the rest of us for not checking the spare. It only had 40 lbs.

I have a floor jack and bottle jack with my TV. The only place you should jack up from is the frame.

Hey Joe,
Glad to hear that you didn't shred the tire and do some real damage. I've not had to change a tire (yet) but I carry a bottle jack. However my plan is to climb one tire on a stack of lego blocks (lynx) to lift the flat one off the ground. I've tried it on both TT's and it works easily. The X23B needed a stack of 3 as I recall and the 5th needs 4. I also bought a small torque multiplier from Harbor F. It's got a step-down gear arrangement that promises to remove tough lug nuts tho at this point it's untested.

Thank you all for the help. I was able to lift the wheel up on my 23 FB with running 1 tire on leveling blocks but haven't tried it on 29rlds.
I will check out a small torque multiplier from Harbor Freight
I will check out using the frame next time
