    Not all easy jakes will raise all tires off the ground. So do a test on build up 2x4's on how high you need to raise the tire.

    I dont know how much lower the back axle would shift on my trailer. The tire had about 2-3 inches of the rubber side walls (could just see a bit of the stamping of the tire size) left but the beads were still seated and the rim wasnt hurt. I dont know how far I had ran it flat but it was up when I left home and only got about 20 miles. I was really surprised that the rim wasnt hurt but the axle did drop at least 6" as that is about the amount of tire that was missing. Maybe for giggles, I will put a jack under the front axle and see how high I have to raise it to clear the rear tire.

    If the trailer is loaded to the limit will the easy jake put to much load on the remaining axel and cause damage. Just curious because I have used that method before by I was never really loaded!

    I had that thought as well, but I've read many reviews on several sites that sell the Trailer-Aid and no one mentioned an issue. Now I have personally been able to change a flat with 3 horses loaded in our 3 horse trailer with no damage. It only takes about 10 minutes to change a tire though. Now if you look at Gary's situation, which is somewhat normal, you may run a few miles on 3 tires before you realize and then stop and discover the trailer is setting on 3 tires. You essentially are holding the weight on 1 1/2 axles while you figure out what to do or wait for help. So I' m thinking the quicker you can redistribute the weight back on 4 tires the better.

    The 12K trailer was pretty much at its rated limit, but the one tire seemed to be holding up the load OK. The tire was a bit warm though. I have my hi-lift jack in the truck now & a new spare tire mounted so I am ready. I dont think I will be plugging any more of my trailer tires. If I get another flat, I will have it patched from the inside.
    Another question: Does anyone balance their trailer tires. I dont see any lead weights on any of mine including the spare I just bought. I didnt request a balance job when I bought it though.

    Most trailer tires aren't balanced. I've read online that people who do balance them like it.

    I do feel a bit of vibration when on smooth surfaces (they just finished asphalting a section of I30 and it is super smooth) which I thought might be tire mis-balance on the trailer. I just hate to take them off or try to find a shop that will do them. Most of the shops around here have such a cramped entry that you can barely maneuver a long wheel based truck into them much less it and a 20 foot trailer.

    UPDATE: Dealer called yesterday and repairs completed except for the tach/instrument cluster shorting out. They couldnt find any thing wrong which didnt surprise me. Sometimes it stops working for several hours, sometimes on a few minutes. Hydraulic pressures were normal so no real repairs other than the new seat bracket and drawbar attachments. I guess they tightened up the coupling that was leaking on the FEL distribution block and my joystick was loose so maybe they found the lock nut to snug that down.
    I asked them to keep it and run it a bit to see if they could get the tach to stop working since I dont particularly need it at the moment.
