Your questions is a extremely important one that I have wondered about. Not being a owner yet, I would hope there are instructions in whatever literature comes with the Escape!

From previous posts on this it is on the framework of the trailer NOT the axle. The axle is a torsion bar and will distort under the weight of a raised trailer. Cheers

Thanks Dixhicup, I'm just wondering where on the frame. It's likely the same place as on your 15b.

Escape recommends using a jack on the frame to the rear of the axle.
