Fifth wheel Jacking locations

Is there a factory approved location for jacking up a fifth wheel to change a tire. just purchased a 2013 Cherokee 245B and didn't get any manuals at all. Also is ther somewher I can get an owners manual?

Do yourself a favor: go to your nearest Camping World (or look it up online) and buy one of these:

Trailer-Aid - Camco TRAILER AID - Towing Accessories - Camping World

That way, there's no jacking required. Just throw this in your truck or basement and drive up on it to change the tire. Way easier! (Of course, it only works if your trailer has dual axles...which it looks like yours does.)

Yes. Place a hydraulic bottle jack of the appropriate weight rating under the axle directly below the spring hanger. This is the correct jacking location. Hydraulic jacks are available at many places. Harbor Freight has decent prices and their jacks work very well.
