Under the axle is where you want the jack. just be sure the jack will fit under the axle when a tire IS flat.
Nothing worse than a jack to tall.

Just do not place the jack under the "axle" as the axle tube will not support the weight of a trailer. You will crimp the axle tube and then bad things happen. Jack on the frame, near the axle. Use something to spread the force point of the jack out a bit, like a 2x6 square of wood.

If you use a Jack under the axle, do not put the jack where it touches the axle tube. Only place the jack where it is located on the axle U Bolt.

I now have a Trailer Aid and it works great.
I have used the stacking leveling blocks to change tires.
