RE: Jacking For Tire Change

This exact jack would not get under a flat tire on my trailer, at least not under the spring perch. I carry a small floor jack with a 1x6 if needed. Do you also carry the important part needed to safely use that jack? By that I mean a floor. With no load on it, run the jack up. Notice the lift pad goes up in a arc? Normal lifting, the pad stays in contact with lifting point be cause the jack rolls under the load. If the wheels are setting on soft or rough surface the pad must slide on you lift point. At least you're not under when it drops. Actually it has a swivel saddle with a "scissored" lift arm and doesn't roll. Or, if it did I didn't notice enough to matter. I have actually used this jack twice without issue, so I'm not speaking hypothetically about its effectiveness. Once in a parking lot (on my car hauler) and once in sand (on my camper) at the CG. The 1x6 worked like a charm with the jack in the sand. I don't know how I lived to tell about it.

RE: Jacking For Tire Change

Ramp/"trailer aid" looks to be a good solution. I would still carry Powerbuilt 3 Ton, Bottle Jack and Jack Stands All-in-1 https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/81tVxUU0mPL._AC_SL1500_.jpg height=440 width=400Will 11" get under the axle with a flat tire?

RE: Can trailer tires be patched?

First trip out in our last camper we picked up a 1/2 inch bolt. Discount patched it up and it worked fine. https://i.imgur.com/fQj6H5Al.jpg Was that on the back tire of the trailer? I picked up a 3/8 bolt once had it repaired from the inside with no problems. Interesting it was the rear tire on the trailer that got the bolt. Yep rear tire on passenger side.

RE: What size generator to run AC??

I run a Honda 2200 converted to LP. I also installed a Micro Air on the Coleman Mach. I've had zero problems and I appreciate the lower db and weight/size of the Honda. I've used this set up across a couple campers now and it's worked well for me.

RE: New Tire Question

I can't say I noticed any difference in towing performance.

RE: New Tire Question

I have run the Cooper Discoverer AT3 and I'm currently running the Michelin Defender LTX MS. Both were/are of the E rated variety. I have no complaints about the Coopers, they timed out before the tread was worn too far. I replaced them with the Michelin's about 4K miles ago and the biggest difference has been a noticeably smoother ride and less road noise with the Michelin's. Some of that can be expected since the Michelin's have a less aggressive tread, however it's quite a bit better. The Coopers were average in the snow and ice here, but after the wint'ry mix we got here earlier today, the Michelin's will get there chance soon enough.

RE: Rear Bumper Storage - how bad is it?

These Lippert under chassis storage boxes cost a pretty penny, but they offer a solution other than the rear bumper. https://www.etrailer.com/s.aspx?qry=lippert+under+trailer+storage&furl=-pg-RV_Cargo_Carrier
