Missing Sticker for Jack, Road Side

Hello All,
did some searches but never did see this scenario...

on the curb side of my 19' ccd is a nice jack sticker pointing to the seam in the belly where jacking should be done (but no metal diamond)

on the roadside of my trailer there is no sticker but i see a diamond shaped (2-3" x 2-3") piece of metal aft of the waste disposal lines.

I need to jack the roadside tomorrow at 8am. Is this metal diamond the place?

Not sure where the jacking spots are on the new trailers but in a pinch, I always use the frame. Why are you jacking the trailer?

hi eric

does it look basically like THIS pic from hatfield...

if it does, then THAT's the spot!

there are more pix in this thread, and more confusion, but the diamond is the SPOT...

be sure the w/d bars are SLACK if the trailer will still be attached to the t.v.

and DO NOT lower the stabilizer jacks, keep them pulled UP away from the ground.

IF NOT attached to the t.v. RAISE the tongue jack a few inches PAST level,

that way, you won't need to jack it up as far to get the tire airborn

loosen the stud nuts, before raising it, or pull the breakaway cable for JUST 1-2 minutes whilel u loosen nuts...

BE SURE TO BLOCK/chok THE OTHERSIDE >>>>>>>>front and back<<<<<<<<

IF you are gonna leave the trail UP a while, put the breakaway pin BACK in the hole, to avoid problems...

go luck with that bubbled tire swap!

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

Not sure about newer units but with vintage units you can't exactly see where the frame is and the jack can easily slip and poke a hole in the belly pan. Lots of people jack on the fishplate to which the axles are bolted. Another no no is jacking on the axle itself

ok, happy to report all went well!
have two brand new tires. I figured better to be safe than sorry (just replacing one would have made me crazy).
luckily i have a really nice 3.5 ton floor jack that comes in handy. the only problem is it will be too big to just bring with me. I'll look into a bottle jack should i ever have to make a change in the "wild".
Anyone have an idea the lift height requirement to get this single axle tire up enough to change?

you missed the perfect time to measure it!

many folks carry a short 4x4 to put under the front jack foot. you can always borrow that for some extra lift.
