Dexter Torflex axles....Where do you jack up...

Need to jack up my 2017 524rlws Flagstaff. It has the Torflex axles, where do you jack up camper to remove wheels. The owners manual says " place jack close to spring mounts on frame. I don't have leaf springs!!! Dexter says "do not jack up on axle housing". Where do I jack it up? Thinking on the frame between two wheels. There is 1/8 thick box tubing 4 inches high and 1 1/2 wide that is welded to the underside of frame that the Torflex axles bolt to in that area. Doesn't look very strong.

Can you just drive one wheel up on blocks, lifting the other wheel? I dI'd this when I had a flat on the highway. Worked great, because I didn't have to worry about jacking it up... pun intended!

Yep, a Trailer Aide works best on torsion axles, don't work for leaf spring suspensions.

The trailer aid sure does work with leaf springs.....At least it worked on my previous two trailers.
