Jacking up Left Rear Tire on '04 Bambi 19'


I'm trying to jack up the left rear tire and I am having a difficult finding a jack spot underneath near the axel. In my manuel, section C-5 (I think) it shows a picture indicating the 'jack point' is between the rear stabilizer and the tire. Only problem is that's the sewer side. Nothing but solid smooth surface underneath except for a small bend out piece of metal. I tried this point with a 2x4 on top to distribute the weight--the ball joint ? to the tire interfered for a good fit.

I need to know where to put my small hydraulic jack underneath my 2004 Safari Bambi, left side tire. If you've jacked up your outfit before, give me a shout and tell me how you did it.

After getting an axle bent from someone jacking in the wrong spot we use the plastic ramp exclusively even at tire shops. I have to drive it on and they do not mine. The ramp is inexpensive and we have a 28' that weighs 8200 lbs. Works like a charm.

Only works on a dual axle trailer. Bambi typically only has one axle..,,

I found the spot to jack up 19' Bambi ('04) on the left. I couldn't see it just looking under the trailer, on your back, crawl under and you will see a sticker saying Jack with arrow. From that sticker location, look for a row of rivet heads from the rear of the trailer towards the front of the trailer in a 'straight' line. This is where the frame is and that is where you put the jack. I used a 6" 2x4 on top of my 2 1/2 ton barrel hydraulic jack and it worked fine.
