Lazy kid; he should have broken that last one down and rotated it 90 or 180 degrees and tried again.

I have a friend with a close to a 9K pound TT, he does not think twice at pulling it at 75-85 mph. I have talked with many who never check their tire pressures. Others who don't know anything about maximum tow capacity of their vehicle. Boaters seem to be the worst.
The dealer I bought my current (for sale) FW from, was a friend, but never informed me about the 65 mph limit on ST tires. I never knew about it until I got online a couple years afterward and started reading about tire failures. I'd already had one China bomb go off in my 2nd year and < 1,000 total miles.

This year, on the Eagle HT FWs, that I know of.

Here is an update: The 7000 pound axles provided by Jayco are in. Jayco mistakenly installed 6000 pound capacity axles when they assembled my 2015 36KTPS. The axle appointment is one week from today. I already installed the new tires and wheels. Too bad I had to cancel a trip to Caleveras BigTrees State Park. Oh well hopefylly back on the road soon.

This is the kind of thing that's making me a bit leery about Jayco, despite their normally good rep.

He said he did not know how it happened but after checking the build records he confirmed that they were the wrong ones. I called Dexter axle first and they told me the warentee would be void if the axles are overloaded. I passed that on to Jayco when I contacted them. That step probably saved me a lot of greif.

How can the rest of us with 7k axles check visually, or is that impossible?

The axles on my rig made by Dexter have a sticker on each axle with the rating.

Mine too, but I'm not sure how long the sticker will last?
