How do I jack up Flagstaff?

I just picked up a new Flagstaff 831FKBSS and I did bring a PDI, but I still missed the part about "jacking point". How do I jack up my Flagstaff to replace a wheel?

Walter and Cathy

Oh, and there's also the Trailer-Aid for those quick tire changes while on the road.

Thanks Michael. The pictures are worth 2000 words.
That is the same way I jacked up my previous trailer, but I wanted to make sure. The first time I jacked up my previous trailer, I put the jack under the axle where it connects to the frame. I lucked out and nothing happened to the axle.

I bought the Flagstaff at Berryland Campers in Ponchatoula, Louisiana.

I really like the Trailer-Aid. I may look into that.

Thanks again...

After having to jack the trailer up in a parking lot in Bennettsville SC in 90 degree weather to change one of my wonderful Carlisle tires, I ordered the trailer aid. I hope I never have to use it, but I have it. I'll have brand new tires on it soon. They won't be Carlisles.

Hey Milzat,
Is the Trailer-Aid available anywhere other than on-line? Camping World? RV dealers?

Yes, Camping World sells them, but they're not cheap.

If you happen to already have a set of Lynx Levelers, this will work also.

Thanks for the info. I think that in my health condition (old and fat and bad out of shape) the trailer-aid is going to become standard equipment.
