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.

If you have torflex axles then you can use bottle jack as in thread below....

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! :)
