Next time try using the motor home jacks. They should lift the MH up were you can remove the tire

Keep in mind the rear tires are the easiest to change. You don't even need a jack if it's an outside dual. Simply drive onto a chock block with the inner wheel and remove the outer one. Put the new one on and drive away.

Be sure to recheck the torque on the lug nuts after a couple hundred miles....Dennis

This works well on old Budd wheels, if you re-torque the inner nuts before you put outside back on. But on hub-piloted, it's a good way to shear studs. Either when it shifts far enough, and weight is on the studs, or when just a little, and proper torque will not pull back in place. As soon as you roll, the lugs are loose.

Agreed, you really don't want to pull the only set of lug nuts off while the vehicle weight is still on the inner tire. You could go from a minor problem to a major disaster, or be seriously injured.
