Thanks, I figured the frame.
I have also read about using blocks of wood under the good tire to lift the flat one high enough to change.

I'm asking these questions as general reference for others that might be wondering the same thing too.
I'm not a dumba**, but I don't mind asking questions either.

Since neither manual to my 2 campers provides any information on how/where to jack the trailer tor change a flat tire.
The 07 Orbit's manual just stated to call road service.

The guy from AAA may have even less an idea where to put the jack on your particular vehicle than than you do. They are looking to get it done quickly and (hopefully) safely (for them) and get you on the road as soon as possible.

They are pretty good about "going for the frame" as the safest place to put their jack. If your vehicle's manual has a specific place that the jack must go, you better know it; because the tech might not.

Yea, that's why I prefer to do anything like that on my own.
I dread the damage that a blown tire would do to a TT, after the damage my F250 received when I had a blow out on I-20 near Birmingham Ala.
Luckily no damage to the camper (07 orbit) from the debris of the blown out tire.
My friend and I had the damaged tire off and the spare put on in just a matter of minutes.
We kinda felt like a pit crew with the 80+ mph traffic zooming by us.
