What bottle jack?

Hi all
As I build my tool base for my coach I realize I need a jack, what do you carry?

I bought a low profile 20 ton one for our MH. I tried a 5 ton and it wouldn't lift even half the front axle.

Oh good to know, it looked like a 6 ton would be enough.

An ERS Emergency Road Service membership such as AAA is a good backup when the ground is muddy, when its; raining, in the dark, when lug nuts are too tight and when the spare is too heavy or difficult to retrieve..

I have aaa rv as well. I was thinking I would put on some bilstien shocks and buy something I can throw in the rv. I had to call out for a flat tire once it took 3 different carriers to come out before they could deal with my inner tire. Oh and I was in downtown Dallas. So I don't like to be a slave to my roadside if I don't have to be.

If you don't have spare tire, you don't need a bottle jack. That said, I have both and have used them along with lug nut breaker bar, road flares and emergency cones. Three hrs waiting beside the road for Coachnet....not ( Boy scout moto be prepared )

Adamfolger I agree I carry one spare local trips 2 for long trips. Texas roads can be a bear, heat and what got me was road debris. And ya waiting is terrible.
