Tires don't lose pressure on just one side. I have seen a loose hub nut cause this problem.

Durasam, that would sure make for a logical explanation. Would the bearing become loose if this happened?

That is a good idea to research it and I will. My concern is it was supposed to have been diagnosed at the dealer and I have a suspicion that they did nothing more than throw another tire on it. When I replaced the spare I checked out the hub. Everything seemed sound to me, but that was me eyeballing it. I guess when I take it on another long haul next fall it will still be under warranty. If I get the same response, I will have to demand more from the dealer. Thanks for the advice.

I guess it would be easy enough if you have time to just knock the hub cover off and check that the nut is tight and cotter pin/flange washer is installed correctly?

Best regards,

I have a 2011 Jayco 29RLDS and had the exact same problem - excessive inside wear on both tires on the rear axle. Given I had about three months left on my warranty I took it back to the dealer where it was purchased. They asked me if had overloaded the trailer (no) or had I hit or backed into something (no). Their only explanation was the axle had lost its camber which caused the excessive tire wear. They worked with Jayco and thankfully got me a new axle and a new set of tires under warrenty. This will be somthing I keep an eye going forward.
