Can you jack it up, remove tires and lower it a bit?

"well for me jacking it up by the frame means you have to be way up there and like someone said also overcome the suspension drop ... sounds hazardous to me I would rather be down low right where the leafs attach and get it off the ground with very little jacking."

Ditto on that.

I'd go with wheels off the trailer too.
You might try and get the frame supported with leveled width-wise spans.

I would level your trailer, put some concrete blocks or wood blocks under the frame and just let the air out of the tires. Tires are still on, trailer isn't any higher or balanced precariously and you don't have the wiggle from the suspension or tires when you walk.


No need to jack it up and balance it in the air that way...

If you are keeping it there, almost permanently, it makes no sense to lift it using the axles, most everyone complains about trailer bouncing, and this has a lot to do with the trailer sitting on springs or torsion axles.

Your best bet would be to buy 8 jack stands placing one on each corner and then one in front of and behind each axle to give you the greatest support.

I found these at Northern Tool for $22/pair, this would provide the support needed.

Trail tire manufacturers say to inflate the tires to a little over max capacity for long term non usage.
