Have an alignment performed. They don't align them after they are built and the majority need it.
I had mine done about 3 weeks ago.

Camp On!

String should also touch both sidewalls of rearward tire if tow is correct. Will NOT check camber angle but simple and cost effective. Hope this helps.
Lolead, thanks for the easy method of checking this issue, I will give it a try.

Loboclone, yes I do have the wonderful cheap Westlakes and the rear right is starting to look just like the one in your photo. It is simple, Jayco applies cheap POS tires on their equipment.

I had the same problem with the right front tire on my dual axle toy hauler (was not a Jayco). Turns out, either the front axle or the rear is dragging the tire sideways significantly when turning. The sharper the turn, the greater the scrubbing. The tire with the lightest load of the four wheels is the one gets the most wear. I never solved the problem. Just minimized the number of sharp hard turns, and used better quality tires.

I did the Maxim upgrade on my 27.5 RLS, after 8,000 miles no problems so far.

Minimizing your tight turns definitely helps reduce rear axle tire wear especially when it is hot outside. However in my experience these cheaper tires which I have had on brand new trailers for years just flat don't hold up. I have had cheap tires on brand new trailers that wear out extremly quick and wear real funky. I have replaced them with the Carlisle tires that our tire shop likes and in the same driving conditions the Carlisles aren't really showing any wear when the west lakes or equivalent are ready to pop. I'm not saying that Carlisles are the best tires but it sure would be nice if the manufacturers spent another $30.00 per tire to install these from the factory. It would make for a much better product and a heck of a lot safer trailer going down the road.
