So now what? What's it going to cost to have it replaced? Jeez!
There is no belly pan under the water tank, and you did in fact find the acceptable jack points. Most older units do not have a "jack " label. I always jack under the steel frame member that holds the axles, just behind or in front of the wheel I want to remove. Just be sure to get it centered and if need be put a hardwood block in top of the jack, as some jacks may dent or bend the frame member if not accurately lined up. Also chock the opposite side wheels so the trailer won't roll or twist of the jack. As noted, you can pull one wheel off the ground with blocks under the adjacent wheel. I usually pull up on about two or 3 inches of block to take the pressure of the wheel I want to remove. That way the wheel is still on the ground to break the stud nuts and then raise it the rest of the way with the jack. Reverse to drop the wheel after installation so you can tighten the nuts and then pull off the blocks.

I have stated on forums many times, I will not jack up a tandem axle trailer of any kind nor use jack stands as they can and will slip. I have heavy duty truck stands and they have slipped. For safety I will only use ramps, wheels properly blocked. Blocks on stands in my opinion makes them unstable. Some one stated doesn't trust ramps only jacks. I hope he isn't under trailer if slips, if any one has worked is safety will tell you jacks can and do slip.

Even though I bought it through a dealer (consignment sale), I've had contact with the PO. I just emailed him to ask whether the belly pan was in place when he bought the trailer.

This has me...perturbed.

An understandable state of mind!

Wondering Jim if JC or the PO gave you any satisfaction on this? Or maybe the dealer . . .

Thanks,

Peter

Wondering if you also saw the pages referenced earlier in your owner's manual?

Let's call it a case of "ready...fire...aim" and leave it at that.

When I jack the trailer I have it hitched. The tow vehicle makes a pretty good chock.
