How to Change an RV Tire Like a Professional

Flat RV Tire - Campbell RVHave you wanted to know how to change a tire on your RV? If you ever get stranded somewhere, it’s not a bad idea to have the power of knowledge on your side.

First, You’ll need a couple RV jacks or an RV leveler. Several dealers and manufacturers now sell RV levelers that enable you to change the tire without ever using jacks.

First, start by placing one of the jacks firmly behind the back wheel and one of the jacks in front of the front wheel on the side affected by a flat tire. Then, loosen the lug nuts with the appropriate size wrench or tire iron.

Crank up the back jack until it makes contact with the RV. Then, jack up the front jack until it makes contact with the frame. Pump the front jack up four more pumps to make sure the RV is sufficiently off the ground. Then, go to the back jack and pump it up three or four more times.

Remove the lug nuts and the flat tire. Then, put the spare tire in the spot previously occupied by the flat tire. Tighten the lug nuts.

Safely lower the two jacks and tighten the lug nuts again after the tire is back on the ground. That’s it! You’re done!
