Greetings from B.C.

Hi, all, 2nd season into our Minilite and I need advice on where the best place to place a jack is...is it the axle? frame closest to wheel/ or on the swivel arm the tire wheel floats on? Thanks for your help.

It sounds like axle is a torsion axle. You should jack up on the frame as close to axle as possible, NOT on the axle tube.

Because the frame is higher and as you raise it the swing arm will drop, it would be a good idea to have some extra blocking for setting the jack on so max lift is available. Short pieces of 2 X 6 work great.
