Jack Points on 26DBH

I was asking the tech at the dealer where the safe jack points are on the TT in case of a flat tire.

They said to jack it by raising the axle? Reading on the forum it sounds like bent axles can be issues from overloading so I am asking for advice. I always have a bottle jack in the Truck as I hate the OEM jacks.

I see the tire cradles for use with dual axle trailers but I don't want to add more cargo weight and take up more space.

How do you find out what axles came with the trailer? I am going to assume that are stamped somewhere.

Thanks!

I'll go look under but I think I have the spring leaf.

Those Torflex axles look sweet!
