Re: changing tire on trailer with boat on trailer

wow, lets see how complcated we can make changing a tire. Loosen the lug nuts on one wheel a 1/2 turn then just put the jack under the axle and raise the wheel off the ground. remove the wheel and install the new one. what do you think happens if you get a flat tire. the boat will not tip over. half of the weight of the boat is sitting low on the trailer. tandem axle trailers are designed to support the weight with only one tire on the ground.
