I use my truck jack.  I know it works because I used it when installing my shocks and removing tires for balancing.

      I was taught many years ago when changing a tire along side a busy highway/road "to put something slightly in the road way" and cars Will drive around it.  Possibly a antifreeze gallon jug....

I carry a separate, small, scissors jack, the kind they once put inside small Japanese cars. I stow it just inside the door to the Casita storage beside water tank. My first route was to consider a small bottle jack but when I imagined a flat tire on pavement and rim fallen down height of tire to rim I was not convinced there would be enough clearance to slide it under the frame near the flat. The scissors jack, only a few inches high would, though. But, I have never used it.

It seems that some jacks on TV are not flat on top and have a notch or "V" indentation to fit the TV frame.
