I find the best place is to place the jack on the axle (under the hanger clamps)where the springs attach to the axles

Just jack high enough so you can turn the tire

Jayco says jack on the main frame rails

It may be best to just call your local jayco dealer and talk to the service desk

they should be able to tell you what is best

Just a couple pumps of the grease gun on each bearing , see your maintenance manual for the axles or Jayco manual for routine/yearly maintenance

you can email jayco and get a general manual for your unit if one did not come with your trailer

Happy Camping

Good idea I never thought of doing that...

You can also use a stepped type wheel chock to drive one of the tires up on until it takes the second tire off the ground, if you have dual axles. Just make sure you set the parking brake and chock the other side tires before getting to close to the trailer. Maybe more trouble then it's worth when doing all four, but it's a good way to change a flat on the road.

I've seen pictures of this procedure online somewhere, and it looked like it worked very well.

My "Dexter Axles" owners manual says to never jack up on the axles or springs or spring hangers or damage may occur, use the TT frame.
