I have a small 2 ton bottle jack, more than enough for my HTT. I have not needed to change my own tires yet (knock on wood). I did help change out a flat on my brother’s PU tire this summer and it did not have enough reach. If I have to change one of my tires I will grab a few blocks pull forwards and drive the good tire on top of the blocks to lift the unit up, kind a like what a Tire-Aid will do. Then grab a few more blocks, to put under the jack and finish lifting the frame to replace the bad tire.

If at home I use my small floor jack on the frame near the axle. If on the road I'd use the scissor jack that came with my truck. I always carry firewood which can be used as a chock and my Lego levelers can be used for cribbing if the soil conditions dictate.

This might not be what you want to hear, but I use my cell phone to call someone to do it.

I bought this "roll on trailer jack". It looks like a great idea. I haven't had to use it yet though thank goodness.

I have used the roll on type, and love it. Unfortunately our friend who started this discussion only has a single axle.

No one has mentioned the fastest and easiest way for a dual axle trailer. That is to run the other wheel up onto some lynx blocks. You can add a bottle jack or stacking jacks for extra security if you need to.

When I had to change a flat I used my leveling pads. I place three, maybe four in front of the good tire, Rolled the trailer on to them. This caused the flat tire to rise
high enough to be removed. Very simple way of doing it and will not cause axle damage. You probably will need the trailer to "climb" on to the pads i.e ( -=) to create a step pattern . I hope this helps.
