Do you know what a torsion axle does?

Txredfish I have a camping trailer with torsion axle and used 3 2x8 boards under good tire and bad tire raises up. Works easy and great. I was told by manufacturer not to place jack under axle as it could bend the axle.

BATWING A couple pieces of 2x6 works great also.

These work very good. We used them on some very heavy tool trailers with regular springs and they worked great. Also used on a couple of smaller enclosed trailers with torsion axles. 100% SAFE as far as lifting. Only thing needs to be considered is getting somewhere away from traffic.

jack up trailer

On my Coastline I rolled a floor jack between the two tires and put a 4" block between the frame and the jack and lifted both tires at the same time.

They do not swing down far after taking the load off. Of course a safety jack stand under the frame behind the rear tire is a good idea.

Boat was a Haynie HO to give you and idea of weight.

Just my method.
