Bob, Thanks for the pic. As most of us are equally confused about jack points, I'd decided to jack between the wheels on the frame where you have the jack stand. Thanks for the reassurance.
(I do carry a trailer aide for on the road tire changing...much easier.)

Scott, on your trailer there should be a diamond shaped piece of alum. riveted to the bottom at four places that indicate a jack point. There should also be a label indicating such, it says "jack"
