Trailer Axle Problem I Think

I have noticed that the space between the two trailers tires on the non door side has decreased enough that I can no longer get my wheel chocks between the tires. There is about 5" between tires on the door side and probably 2" on the other. The spacing was the same. Do I have a problem? Jayco Eagle Premier.

Welcome to the forum. If I understand this right something is definitely wrong. The distances should be equal.

With this situation you will scrub those tires bald in no time.
First off something has either broke or come loose. I would not move it until you find out and are able to be sure the axles are secure. Then you need to get them aligned.

You have a huge problem. Do not go anywhere with your trailer.

Is the trailer level when you see this? It surely does not sound right.

Did you park the tt while doing a turn? If so it might be standard flex in the system, but I do not recall that much change between tires.

I believe you have leaf spings. I'd start by checking the equalizer between the two sets of leafs. I have broken that part before, it will drop that side of the tt down, and allow the front leaf spring to stretch out.
