You might want to investigate a Trailer Aid ramp that eliminates the need for a jack to change tires on your AS. Much easier and safer IMHO.

One came with trailer but when I need to service tires or brakes, I use the 1 Ton jack as shown.

I have one of those "Trailer Aid" things to drive up on. If you have ever used one, and look at the tire sitting on it, you would wonder how in the world all the weight of the trailer can rest on 1 darn tire. It is scary, like it just may blow at any second.

Sure, they are "engineered" to roll on 1 tire in emergencys, but it is still scary.

I like the jack method myself.

Hey Bruce,
Which HiSpec wheels did you go with? Did you stay at 15"? I'm pondering making this upgrade on our 23FB which currently has 14" wheels.

We replaced our original 15" wheels with a Series 3 HiSpec. It is a virtual copy of the original in size shape and style. Nice wheels!
