Jack Point Question

Odd question but I've poured over all the manuals for my rig and can't find the answer. I have a 2007 Forest River Rockwood, 31 ft TT with the torsion bar suspension. Anybody know where the appropriate jack point is for this in the event I need to change a tire? I even have the suspension manual that covers just about everything as to how it functions but no mention of the jack point......Any help would be appreciated.

Place the jack under the spring perch and jack at that point ONLY. Never place a jack or jack the axle tube itself. It could cause it to bend.

As it's torsion arm suspension, jack it up on the frame as near to the axle as you can get. There is no spring perch donn.
