I use a wood wedge, similar to the Trailer Aid, but a little longer. I made from 2 x 6. It is 4 layers thick, with a 3' long base, tapered to a upward to flat. It cost ~$10 to build if new material is used. Using this wood wedge I can jack up any wheel in just a few minutes.

I also use a bottle jack at times. But, if a tire goes flat, it drops the load onto the other two tires, pushing the axle mounting plate much closer to the ground. It can be difficult to get a bottle jack into the correct location.

I keep both wedge and jack in my trailer while traveling.

jacking trippl axel excellio 1000 34'

I'm in the process of a restoration of a triple axel excellio 34 ft.
I need to do the brakes I'm just going to replace all the wheel parts bearings seals and backing plates with shoes. So what would be the best way to attack that project. jack up all three? The one side at a time with two jacks and a beam between the three axels carrying all the waight between the two points ? With out doing any damage . it seems like that would be the best way to get after it. all at once. one side at a time. yes ? or no?
