i would say axle or any exposed frame near the wheel. be sure to chock the opposite wheel. fyi you may need to deflate tire a bit to get it out of the wheel well. super tight there.

Don't put the jack on the axle.
There should be some small squares of aluminum riveted to the underside of the trailer next to wheel wells. These are the jack points.

You might want get tires that fit the wheel well with out deflating them. Unlt you carry an air compressor it will defeat the purpose of carrying a spare.
