Uneven Tire wear

Just back from our Columbus Day trip with our 2015 X18D and I notice that we have severe tire wear on one of our 4 tires.

We have probably covered 4500 miles with this trailer from new and three tires look almost new and one is showing thread.

I have two questions
1) any ideas on what is causing this?
2) would it be covered under warranty?

Here's the worn tire

And for comparison here's one of my good ones

I would hope that it is covered under warranty, but you can bet they will try to blame you for bending an axle. Get it to the dealer and documented before your warranty runs out.

I just had a tire do that on my last trip.. 700 km and it went from looking like your bottom tire to looking like your top tire.. Had to be bad belts... drove home on the spare and it still looked like new..

Cause? Bent axle, bad or improperly adjusted bearings, bent or damaged axle components.
Covered? Maybe, find the cause then follow through.
Get your spare on there before gong any further, that tire is close to blowing and could cause thousands in damage if it goes at speed.
Note, you might be able to see the problem yourself. Park on flat pavement and look under the trailer from the back towards the wheels. You'll probably be able to see if the wheel is misaligned considering how quickly this developed.
