Careful where you store that can. I had mine in a duffel bag with a bunch of tools. At some point it released its contents - maybe on a hot day. I think I threw pretty much all of it away.

I have found that carrying a spare jack is a wise and valuable thing. I always keep a spare, cheap scissors jack and a few 2 x 8's handy with the trailer.

It's not about fixing flats, it's about lifting weight when there's no other way. Try lifting that tongue when it's on the ground and the built in jack is bent or busted. A couple months ago I needed it to help stranded motorists I came upon who were stuck in a desolate area. Anyone notice that often there's no cell phone service where we go camping?

A tongue chock - don't ask what we improvised with when our first camp site was a muddy mess and Paul didn't want the tongue to sink!

Don't forget a cork screw! When we picked up the 17b, it was the first tool we used!
