Most folks use pickup truck spare tire winch assemblies that they picked up in the local salvage yards and modify them to work on the mh. There are some commercial products available but I never found one that works for me. I just hang my unmounted spare between the frame rails with a couple of short pieces of chain. This assumes that you have 19.5" tires as 22" may not fit between the rails. I'm sure others on here will have more suggestions for you.

Hi
The equalizer jacks should all come down and touch the ground.The equalizer will lift the vehicle to a leveling point,iven when you are on uneven ground. If one jack is not coming down like the others I would bleed the line of air at the
Conection at the jack. I hope this works. Its basicly like your brakes on your car. They must come on with presure to all wheels equaly. I hope this helps

My 2002 has a factory installed carrier for the spare. It looks to me to be the same unit that is used by the big pickups.

i bought a new off of ebay for 20.00, and use it on a 22.5 tire only. i put 2 cris crossing chains under it as for safety. i only have to put my ratchet on the gear box mounted to the side of the frame and i can lower it down.
