Rather than jacking you may want to roll the tire you're not removing onto leveling blocks which will lift the other tire off the ground.

I've lifted my tt by putting the jack under the spring and axle with a length of 2x4 in between to spread the load. Having said that check the owners manual for the correct location on your tt.

I bought a ramp specifically designed to drive one wheel up on and it lifts the other one off the ground. Beats using a jack and it is alot cleaner too

To answer your question just for and aft of the wheels and as close in as is possible...

To clarify what Seann45 said. Place the jack on the frame.

From my manual, word for word, should be in yours too:

Locate the main frame of the trailer (it spans from front to back, just inside the tires)
To raise the RV, place the hydraulic or screw jack under the main frame rail. It must be just ahead of the front tire or just behind the rear tire.
