Not that anyone asked...

This has been mentioned in the forum before, but bears repeating. Whatever you choose to carry it is best to actually loosen the lugs, jack up the trailer and remove the wheel to make certain what you carry works. Some trailers are high. Some trailers are low. Jack handles can be too short. Some lug wrenches don't provide enough leverage. Some trailers and vehicles have odd things which can get in the way of jacking. It's best to figure those things out at home before you need to change a tire in the rain.

Keep in mind that the trailer will often sit lower with a flat tire. It may require two steps of jacking with using blocks to support in between. Always properly chock the wheels.

I carry a small cheapy 2 ton floor jack with blocks and plywood pads. My 23b sits very low.

I also carry a 12 volt compressor and bicycle hand pump. Always check the spare tire pressure BEFORE mounting it. 12 volt compressor cords are long, but not that long. Don't ask me how I know that.

I bought one in blind faith that they would work the WH axles. I will try it this afternoon when I pull it out of the storage lot and send a pic.

If not then I guess my Dad gets a new toy for their JayFeather!
