RTFM!

Did read the owners manual. Not very precise. The placard that say's jack with the arrow points to a spot with a rivet but no 2 X 2 plate. I think either Bob's advice or one about in between the wheels will be the way to go.

I think this is your owner's manual:

On p. 8-18 [PDF p. 86/116] is the 12-volt wiring diagram, and on the right edge in the middle is the distribution scheme from the power center/converter. [See Note #4]

but does this schematic cover it?

Peter
Maybe I'm blind. Yes, Page 8-18. Yes, that's the manual. the one I downloaded. I even rotated it so the text is right side up. Yes, Note 4.
Then it says "To 12v. Trailer schematic. See trailer schematic for model"-----but there isn't one.
The next page starts the 120v. schematics, and never returns to 12v.
Did I go crazy?

Nope!

Sorry, I missed the missing 12-volt schematics.

No biggie.
To put a finer point on it, I posted that because people were beating up the OP for "Not reading the manual".
Now being male, I'm adverse to reading instructions, but eventually I try, and sometimes don't find my answer.
Then I ask!

When I use the jack points, it distorts the frame so that the entry door will not open if closed or close if open. It seems to me that if the axle mounting plate can support the weight of the trailer when the wheels are on the ground one should be able to jack there. In a similar thread someone suggested to use a load spreader so as not to concentrate the load at a small jack piston top. That sounded like good advice. I use a piece of 2x4 or 4x4 or steel angle if I have one.

I have a couple of hockey pucks that I use on our cars and trailer to spread the load. About $1 each.
