Seasonal Storage

The DW & I just picked up our 'new' 2010 2304 and will be going on the shake down cruise in 2 weeks. We haven't been camping in decades so I am reading all the documentation that was supplied. The AL-KO axle manual states that when the TT is stored for more than 2 months, all the weight should be taken off the axles - i.e. put the TT on blocks.

The problem is that I don't see any reference to jacking points (the frame looks a bit lite!!). From reading other posts on this forum, I was planning on using a ramp under the good tire in the event of a flat.

Two questions: where are the jacking points & do I really need to put the trailer on blocks? As we reside in the great white north, I expect the trailer will be stored for 4 - 5 months during ski season.

A trailer/frame is designed to have all wheels on the ground at all times.
We're on our fourth unit & have never stored any up on blocks.
Just asking for alignment issues if you do.
