Where to place the jack.....

Okay, I've hunted everywhere on where to place my jack so I can grease the E-Z Lube bearings that came with our 2018 206STSE. We're leaving on a Utah trip in a week and I want to take care of the bearings before putting 600 miles on her. I've been reading conflicting jack points and really don't want to end up screwing up the pop up or ending up with a trip to the ER. Thanks in advance....

Iíve always used a bottle jack and placed it on the axle as close to the drum as possible.

I put my jack right under the frame in front of the torsion arm mount.

If you have torsion arm suspension, place the jack under the frame in front of or behind the axle. You don't want to put it under the axle tube because you will bend it causing tire and tracking problems.


If you have leaf springs you can place the jack under the spring where it is attached to the axle.

This is where I place the bottle jack with wood in between the jack and torsion axle. I have lifted the trailer many times from this spot with no issues. I have a HW276.

Caution: Don't over grease.
