Tire Changes

Getting new Goodyear Endurance tires on our Escape 21 tomorrow afternoon. The tire shop we are using does all our trailer tires and some of our truck tires but I'm pretty sure they have never seen an Escape camper.

Where is the best place for them to place their jacks to change the tires?
Any precautions?

ETI recommends on the frame between the tires on a tandem axle trailer (except for the earliest 5.0s which used solid axles and leaf springs, rather than torsion axles. Those are jacked on the axle as close to the frame as possible, using a block of wood between the jack and the axle (per Reace).
What a long strange trip itís been!

I had my shop put in steel valve stems and balance the tires with weights placed on the side I can't see. Cheap money well spent.
