Trailer Aid plus

Has anyone used the trailer aid plus to change a tire. I have a Jayco 24RL and was wondering if it would work with that.

While not that exact device I have run a tire up on blocks to change the other tire on a dual axel. This seems like it will work.

We have one that I carry in the truck when we travel but fortunately haven't needed to use it. My understanding is they work well with axles that are the normal distance apart, but maybe not well with the wider spaced ones.

Maybe I'll give it a try when I inspect my brakes this spring.
If you're going to "regret it in the morning", sleep until noon.

My trailer axles are pretty far apart.
The trailer aid + is almost tall enough, so I put it on a 2x8 for extra height.
The only negative is that it slips on some flat surfaces, so I may put something under it for additional friction.
Used it once for a flat, another time to adjust brakes.
Other flat I just drove up on a curb.
Test it before you need it.

I still carry a bottle jack in case of bad terrain or jack failure.
