Jacking my wide axel 24RBS to fix a flat

Greetings. I'm a newbie to TT camping and want to be prepared for a flat. Do I need to buy a bottle or scissor jack to lift on the leaf spring bracket or frame rail? Can i lift the flat off the ground by rolling the good tire up on leveling blocks? With wide axels it seems i'd have to lift it very high. Thanks!

Welcome!

You will need a separate jack for the wide stance axles. I tried using blocks and a Trailer Aide with our WH and neither worked.

Will be making our first trip tomorrow. I purchased the trailer aid plus based on the info i found here, reviews and of course the nice marketing video. I have a Jayco 265RLSW. Not sure what wide stance axles means so hoping I don't need it but hoping it will work as advertised if I do. Did I miss something in the brochure re it working on my trailer?

The White Hawk axles have almost double the space between them compared to other models, thus the term wide-stance. The Trailer Aid should work fine for anything else.
