Jack up Teton


Recommended Posts

Need clarification on proper and safe way to jack up one wheel at a time on my Teton 20K lb trailer. I have a 20 ton bottle jack and I assume the best place for the jack is on solid metal base plate underneath leaf spring pack. Thanks for advice....

This is the way I saw a AAA service guy change the rear tire on my triple axle toy hauler. I am not sure if this was a good thing. Maybe some one can comment on this procedure.


He placed a 4x4 (angle cut on the rear) in front of my trailer wheels. Then, using my truck, I pulled forward until the two front wheels were on the 4x4. He then used his light weight floor jack to lift the rear axle just enough to change the rear tire. The floor jack was placed under the rear axle.

Running up on a block is the way the tire boys at the shop change most big truck tires and axles tied together like the 5th wheels usually are. It will not work if you have independent suspension, so no need to bother with the block. If you can let your stabilizer jacks down too it will help to keep things level, hard to do on the side of the road though.

I've got the Big Foot system on mine and when the dreadful china bomb blew, I just blocked under my rear feet and lifted the whole unit up high enough to clear the pavement on my middle axle. I did bleed off my air suspension system before lifting the trailer. Actually had the tire off when the road service showed up.
