I agree, a couple of close-up pics of your WDH with your TV/TT hitched would be helpful.
I will assume for now that you have the "eaz-lift elite" WDH with the round bars (please advise if otherwise).

The spring bar chains shouldn't come into contact with the TT frame during normal TV turns, but may in a very tight TV turn. If the snap-up bracket isn't positioned correctly on the TT frame, then it is possible for the chain to touch the TT frame (chain vertical & TV/TT in straight line allows for proper for/aft movement of spring bars during TV turns). Also, if the chain-link isn't seated correctly on the snap-up bracket "hook", this could compromise the chain movement.
As far as the set-screw bolt on the backside of the snap-up bracket, it should only
be tightened 1/4 turn (1/2 turn maximum), over tightening will cause the snap-up bracket saddle over the top of the TT frame to bend, and/or cause cotter pin placement issues.
Bolting a snap-up bracket to the Jayco frame isn't a problem (mine is) as long as it is done properly. In most cases issues associated with snap-up brackets moving or bending stem from the heavier tongue weights (1,200lbs plus). As mentioned, Reese even addresses this with their standard WDH's........, this is do to the 6" tall TT A-frames that many manufactures use, not just Jayco.

Hope this helps.
