If you have an electric compressor, you can also turn the generator on and use the outside electrical outlet.  Did that once when I had a flat, and a man came over with an electric impact wrench to help remove/install the lug nuts.

An air compressor is handy.  On an Alaska trip, we stayed overnight in a large gas station parking area (miles from any campground).  Start out next morning: thump, thump, thump.  After two flat tires and now a third one!  But careful inspection showed no flat tire.  Started off a second time and again: thump, thump, thump.  Doing a real detailed inspection revealed a fist-sized rock between the drivers side duals.  A nearby trucker came over with a very large crowbar.  The rock wouldnt budge.  Solution: let the air out of one tire, remove the rock, fire up the generator, plug in the air pump, pump up the tire, and on our way.

GoPhoenix,

You offer great advise on removing a lodged rock between dualies when an air compressor is on hand.  ThumbsUp

I gave you a "Helpful" clicky.
