Hello fellow RVers and campers alike. I hope you are all well in these crazy times. Being in Canada it that time of the year to get all my camping in and I like to go with my RV and have no issues. On my resent trip which is usually done in the May long weekend, But was cancelled due to all this crazy stuff, I noticed for the first time that my rear tire on the passenger (right)side (Tandem axles) that it is starting to wear on the outside of the tire. Now that tells me right away that the axle is out of alignment from the front axle. I hooked it up tonight after removing the wheel caps and greasing all the bearing that the axle is 1/4" further apart then the drivers (left) side. I take pretty good care of things and no one has taken my trailer camping except for me so I know there was nothing hit or a bump taken too hard. I was looking under the trailer to find a clue on any place the axle is adjustable.. I found nothing and now I am here. Another thing is Im getting new better quality tires this week before our next trip, closer to the end of the month. I dont want to wear a brand new pair of boots before their time.... Any ideas would be great. Thanks you all
Thanks for the fast reply Grumpy. Have all the tires and rims of now and the trailer is on stands. Perfect time to start checking bushings and all is a good idea. Unfortunately it was WAY to hot today to get that done. Tomorrow is another day. Thanks again for your fast reply
My neighbor had a Jayco as well. He had the same tire wear issue you noted. He had Jayco inspect the axle and found it was not straight. Jayco said they had a mfg issue with some of the axles and replaced it under warrantee. May want to have your local service center confirm. Hope this helps. Safe camping !
