Raising the trailer

I need to jack the trailer up so that all four wheels are off the ground and I can't put the jack under the axles. This is my first 5th wheel plus I've never jacked one up this size. The manual doesn't talk about this stuff.

So, should I jack one side (left or right) first? Where is the recommended place to put the jack?

Or jack one end (front or rear) first then the other?

Bill

Bill
so as to avoid a twisting action on frame
that would seem best
a long timber
that would catch
the ends of the frame
along with the ends of the sides of the frame
would be supported in three places
read too much regarding frames lately
take it slow and careful
