Apply first. Then go over the details with the loan officer.
If you do not qualify with that debt.... Nothing says that you cannot pay it off and have the file 'run' again for approval.

Good Luck!!

No, I would not pay off the second rental because the cash flow (hopefully positive) should help your debt ratio. Plus, the monies that you use to pay it off could also hurt your debt ratio.
