Wheel removal

I'm getting ready to service the wheel bearings on our 18 S-RB. I'd like know if it's better to place a floor jack under each individual axle and remove one wheel at a time or do I want to jack up the trailer by placing the jack under the frame. I don't want to twist / warp anything by raising the trailer incorrectly. Thanks in advance for any advice concerning this issue!

Under the frame not the axle.

Dual axle? drive camper onto blocks lifting tire you want to fix then switch. Easer to jack up under frame and do one side at a time but blocks lift it enough to remove tire.

Never put a jack under your axle; you could bend it.
Jack up the frame.

I picked up one of these and I hope I don't have to use it, but looks very handy if I do:

The warnings about axles are specific to torsion axles. If you have leaf springs, you are totally fine to use the spring perch/pad to jack up a wheel at a time.
