Have a low tire

I did a quick search, but found no quick answer. Would someone please tell me where to put the jack on a 25' Safari? We are leaving early tomorrow and need to stop by the tire shop. Our rear rt tire has a very slow leak. Normally I would search and read for hours, but I just don't have time tonight.

Thank you.

Loosen the lugs and drive the other tire up on to a block, this will lift the tire you want to remove. No jack needed

Thank you.
Running the good tire up on blocks/boards is the better method.
If you really want to jack it the point is behind the rear tire and in about 18 inches. Look for the re-inforced pad. If you don't see it don't jack there.

Thanks! My husband thought that the shop may not want to use the boards. We did try that at home though and it did work, but if they don't want to do it that way, we will have them look behind the rear wheel and in 18 inches. Thank you!

Jack point

On my 06 there is a decal that says "Jack Here".
But I wouldn't trust a tire shop with a jack on mine!!
Discount tire has always let me ramp my trailer up for them and then they take over.

Often when I have a flat and make my way to a tire shop they don't want to jack it with blocks. They say the block doesn't get it up high enough and "I've been doing this 25 years and know how to jack a trailer up." I now have a "Trailer Aid" block, but don't know if mechanics will go for it any more than a wood block. Need to learn how to change the tire myself I guess.

Wonder what they would say if you told them you were planning on telling the insurance adjuster that....
