jacking up the whole trailer technique

Hey guys and gals, at some point in the near future I’m going to install my lift kit on 22 sport. Here’s the question:

When lifting up trailer to support trailer are you guys lifting the front then the back or conversely one side or the other.

Ie I will have two floor jacks do I jack up the back, stabilize with jack stands then jack up the front and stabilize with jack stands? It would seem jacking up on one point only then adding jackstands. Would unnecessarily flex or contort the trailer.

Hope this makes sense feel free to shoot holes in my plan

Regards
Sean

Attach the trailer to your Tow Vehicle and engage the Emergency Brake.
Lower the tongue jack till it touches the ground. Then jack up the rear of the trailer and support with jack stands on the frame near where the axle mounts. Be very careful. Single axle trailers are not my favorite to install a lift due to the risk. Double axle units are safer because you leave one axle in place while working on the other.

Yes...

I now use the 'Old Fart' method.
I used to remove the Hensley...it now stays on, covered.
I used to remove the Lifelines...the BB's stay in charged.
