Rockwood mini 2109s, jacking it up???

2011 Rockwood Mini Lite 2109s. No where in any of the booklets/directions does it say where to place the jack in the event of a flat. We'd like to raise it to get the tires off the ground and relieve the pressure on the suspension.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Debbie

Generally, the jack should be placed on the main frame rail as close as possible to the suspension.

If it is a tandem axle, jack between the axles on the suspension framework. DO NOT JACK ON THE AXLES if it has torsion suspension.

An alternative is using something like the TrailerAid.

We're not looking to specifically change a tire, we're looking to take the load off the suspension while it sits.... But thanks for the suggestion, we never saw the Trailer Aid before so it's always good to learn different approaches/devices.

Thanks!
