    MCTROY larry5167-- i have 3001w windjammer you have torsion axles .
    4 ton bottle jack place under torsion arm near the axle stub just make sure jack pad is centered jack torsion arm up only one tire will go up when tire clears enough slide board under tire and release jack then do same to other tire. torsion axles are independently sprung .
    i have 2 4 ton jacks jack up both tires when greasing bearings or doing brake work and use jack stands under frame fore and aft of wheels . most of the time the trailer want move just the tires an the jack stands will have an inch or so clearance i just slide a shim between frame and jack stand .

    if you jack the frame or axle cross tube you will be picking the whole trailer up on one side at least a foot to clear tire of the ground.
    the torsion arm is made to support the trailer
    I ran a hot shot business over 10 years had 3 different goose neck trailers one with torsion axles a lot less maintenance than springs and shackles.

    Yes, we are planning to get to evergreen on Thursday. I haven't heard anything about the plans yet.

    Now I have to back out unfortunately. I will be traveling for a few days to Bangladesh and Cambodia. Let me know how it goes once you've put out the campfire and driven home.
