Don't think you'll ever see a clearance problem with the tire mounted under the A frame, the angle points, axle-ball-axle, on these molded TT's are to short for much real change. If you should hit it mounted there, well you'd have to be off roading or curb hopping. My last class A had 12' between the rear axle
and hitch, that one would drag just going through a road drainage swale if I had to cross it at a 90* angle. I wouldn't be worried about battery
acid dripping either. I've only had one battery leak to the extent of dripping in over 120 vehicles and don't think it would hurt the tire anyway, may be wrong but I've never had it hurt rubber that it contacted. If you wanted to give it a try, cut a 2x4 for the top to span the frame, then through bolt the spare up. Have someone watch as you try different angles. I think you'll be fine with the change.
