jack location on 2004 25RBT

Our 2004 25 foot Classic has no decal indicating where a jack should be placed if necessary to change tires. I looked in the area behind the tires and could not see any riveted plate either. Can someone send a picture showing where it should be? Thanks.

The plate is just a diamond-shaped piece of thin aluminum. Can you see anything like that?

Somebody, please, point me to the road.

Also as a general rule you want to jack on the frame at a location where there are complex features coming together. Behind the wheels requires less vertical load on the frame and jack due to leverage considerations. between the wheels is second best. In front of the wheels is not recommended because vertical load required to lift is now getting high. The closer the jack is to the front tongue, the higher the load. Lifting from the back shifts a significant part of the wheel load to the tongue jack so the lifting jack and frame does not bear the load. I realize it is hard to locate the frame behind the wheels due to sheeting... follow the previous advice about the riveted diamond plate and you are good to go or jack from between the wheels. good luck!

Between the wheels IS where the tires support the trailer.

I tried the indicated rear jack point once...after sounding, it turned out the 'point' only included 2" of actual frame. Too much room for mistakes when the frame isn't visible.

I have used the axle mount plates ever since.
I prefer to see what supports my jack.

Thanks all. Owners Manual is essentially useless on this subject. Can't see anything under the frame to indicate where to jack. Guess i will jack between the wheels on the frame that holds the axle.

Just lie under the trailer behind the rear wheels and dump valves ant tap on the underbelly where the banana wrap joins it. You can easily tell where the actual frame is above the aluminum skin. Mark it for future reference.
