Airstream Essentials – Trailer Aid Plus
In advance of our return to Alaska, we invested in a Trailer Aid Plus. This is nothing more than a durable plastic ramp that you drive onto and which lifts the other trailer axle high enough off the ground for you to change the tire. Trying to raise a 30′ tandem axle trailer with a jack is already tricky in controlled environments, let alone on the side of a semi-improved goat trail, or in an abandoned hotel parking lot. Last year we borrowed 13roads‘ twice in Alaska. Less Junk More Journey also put theirs to good use last year, for easier access to their freshwater tank. Whenever doing any kind of work under the trailer, always remember to secure it from moving. A combination of wheel stops and wheel chocks do a really good job. Safety first!
