Question raising a 345mh

when i take my 345 in for new tires (8) should i be aware of any particular process to watch for concerning how they raise it? i've had wheels off previously but always one at a time and i doubt they will be that concerned. i'm mainly concerned with the tag and would rather prevent a problem than stand there and watch one happen. suggestions? thanks!

Front axle should be obvius, put a floor jack under each lower control arm, lift, change out the tires, and lower.
Rear axle is a bit more complex because of the tag axle. They may be able to raise the drive axle enough so the tag axle will also clear the ground.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Terry- we used wedges in front & behind of the front wheels then used onboard levelers to raise the rear end & the tags did clear the ground. when all rear tires were changed we wedged the rear tires and raised front end with front levelers and all went well. decided to go with bridgestone, 8r19.5,m-724's. our to-do list got even shorter with the new tires as more than one "rattle" is gone. thanks for your input.
