If you are unlucky enough to suffer a puncture in your caravan wheel you must make sure you go about changing the caravan wheel safely and efficiently. Try to make sure that you do not change your caravan wheel without someone else being there, you should always do this in twos. You should have a caravan spare wheel so getting a puncture is not a disaster; you just need to understand the process of changing the caravan tyre.
You must have your caravan on level ground before you change the caravan wheel, away from traffic and people when possible.
Leave your car attached to the caravan and apply the handbrake on the caravan. Use your warning triangle and turn on your hazard lights.
Check the opposite caravan wheel. Position your jack at the relevant jacking point.
Raise your jack to touching point of the chassis. They should be lined up and flat to the ground. Operate the jack slowly until the caravan wheel is just off of the ground.
Lower the corner steadies on your caravan for extra stability. Undo the bolts on the caravan wheel and remove your caravan tyre.
Put your caravan wheel in place and replace the bolts in a diagonal order but don’t over tighten at this stage. Raise the corner steadies and lower the jack.
Once the jack is fully lowered and the caravan tyres are touching the ground you can tighten the bolts fully using a torque wrench. You will find your correct torque setting for the caravan wheel in your caravan handbook. Check the pressure of your newly fitted caravan wheel before driving on it.
Release your caravan handbrake before driving off. After travelling twenty to thirty miles on the replaced caravan wheel you should pull over and check that the bolts on the caravan wheel haven’t loosened at all. It is a good idea also to check this before every trip you make on every caravan wheel.
If you have breakdown cover then do not try to change your caravan tyre yourself, use them because that is the service you pay for. Changing a caravan wheel on a busy road or motorway can be particularly dangerous so make sure that you take special care when doing so.
Make sure that you always have the correct caravan spares with you on every journey to make sure you don't get caught out.
