Just opened the boxes and see the jack has a rubber mat enclosed but not the leveller. Both have ribbed bases.

I was thinking about getting these leveling blocks. Just to clarify, you needed to cut off a thin portion of the wedge so that the wedge would fit between the dual axle while setting them up to get the trailer level correct?

Also has anyone actually used the Anderson Rapid Jack on a trailer with the high axle lift. I'm wondering if it will provide enough lift to change a tire on the 19 with the high axle lift.

Another option to eliminate/reduce amount cut off levelers. Drive up on a couple small blocks first. I use a couple 4" lengths by 1/2" inch high. That increases the distance by allowing some of the leveler to be "under the tire." Often, those small blocks are enough to get things level.

I’ve used the regular Anderson levelers to get a second wheel off the ground (to adjust brakes) on our 19 with lift kit. The Anderson jack goes even higher.

It's the trailer body that is lifted higher off the axles. I've used the Anderson Rapid Jack to change a tire on my 19, and it works just fine.

i have a small bottle jack ( hydraulic ) that I've never had occasion to use. If I need to, I will pile up some 'lego' blocks, put the jack on top, under the frame rail, near the axle.

Yes. But mostly to replace the one on my truck! One jack for both.

The Trailer Aid would be good for fixing flats with a tandem axle. Ours works fine. But we can hardly manage the wheel weight!
