Rear axle out of allignment

I own a 2014 375BHFS. On one of my last trips last season I experienced a blow out on my rear right side tire. I attributed it to the cheap Tow king tires that Jayco changed too. After getting all 4 of the tires replaced and the damage repaired caused by the blow out my dealer decided to have the axle alignment checked. It turns out the rear axle was towed in and the camber was off. We now believe this may have been the cause of my blow out. Has anyone else experienced an axle being out of alignment?

I did on an OB TT. Both axles were our of alignment. They bent them back into alignment. Cheap Lippert axles. You were wise to get them checked. Most guys just attribute the blown tire to a bad tire.

A friend of mine that travels west every year had three out of four tires wear out on the inside on his sunny brook fifth wheel . Took it to a local shop and they re bent the axle I believe to get everything straight and the last two trips have been good with even wear. My 05 designer the left rear would wear on the inside after about 10k miles .most people don't put that many miles on their rig and would never know.

Same story on bent axles, worn tires etc, three of my friends have had same issue. suggest any one traveling long distances have the axles checked, we all three had our axles re-bent at Dicks alignment in Rock Island Illinois and have had no problems taking several 3,000 mile trips.
