Personally I wouldn't want to have a spare mounted under a trailer. Clearance, service and dirt & mud issues on a wet day. Is your spare mounted on a frame that uses lug nuts to hold it on the frame. If so, a simple solution may be to double lug each stud or to use a locking bolt over the nut. For safety and security, I did that on the spares of two class c's I've owned.

I took ours off the back bumper and put it under the queen size bed in the bedroom of our last trailer.

thats a good idea to put it under the bed but our bed is on a slide no storage under there
I will put in the back of the truck for now but that will get old real fast.
I don't mind having it under the trailer,don't plan on using it to often.
