Hi all caravaning Buddies
I have a 1988 Sprite Sunway. I am redoing it and was wondering how the heck does a person jack it up on the side of the road should I get a flat.
I have come across a number of people (mainly overseas) saying lift the one wheel with a chock block then you can remove the other wheel?????
Is there any other information that anyone can offer me please?
On a double axle you are correct.
On double axle you are right.
Thank you Paul. Then that is the way to go. I will make a chock block and place it somewhere safe.
We used a high lift jack and a WheelBuddy on the good wheel.
I normally had a 3 ton trolley jack that I always tag along just for this purpose. Now I just make use of the 12 V electrical jack.
You can buy the wheel step from any Camp or Leisure World outlet.
Thanks again Paul.
Thanks Flip and Leon.
Leon you mention a 12volt jack. I never seen a 12volt jack, I didn't even know they maunfactured that, can you please tell me where I can buy a 12 volt jack
i would like to look at this 12v jack as well, whilst i have never had a puncture yet, i use a scissor jack to lift the axle until my 20 ton bottle jack fits in and does the rest, i do this every 6 months just before i move to inspect the wheel bearings.
George I found this at Adendorff
thanks colin, that sure going to make life easier .
Yes the 12V electrical jack is on stock at Adendorf's. Make sure you buy the 2 Ton Jack and not 2000pounds jack.
They do have a downfall of the full potential lift capability is only available from when the jack is about halfway to two thirds open. But is should not be a problem if the caravan is not that heavy or if in your case the one wheel is still hard.
I have installed a 12 V socket on either side of the caravan in the middle between the two wheels. This way I have no problem with 12 V access-ability because I use the jack to store my caravan with the wheel lifted of the ground.
12v socket at the wheels is a good idea , thanks.
