Best Point to Jack Up TT for Tire Changes

We have a 2018 Dutchmen Aerolite 2520RKLSL TT and are considering having new Goodyear Endurance ST tires put on. Just not worth the risk of running the China bombs it came with. Good enough to get it off the lot but and a few short trips but that is all.

My concern is knowing where the tire dealer should jack up the TT to install the new tires. I've learned not to assume that a tire dealer will know this especially with some of the unskilled labor that is used. What point should they jack up the TT at? I'm assuming it is the frame at a midpoint between the two wheels. I've heard to never let them jack up a wheel by the axle as it may bend. Looking for input so I make sure my TT isn't damaged when new tires are put on. Thank you!

We always did ours where the axle meets the spring...

While I’ve always jacked under the axe by the shackle bracket, I believe you are supposed to jack against the chassis frame railing.

I always place the jack under the axle near the tire I want to change. I have the independent axle system on my RV so jacking by the frame will not work very well plus jacking by the frame could cause some damage inside AND my RV is completely sealed underneath.
