Just recerved an email from the unit President that our unit Treasurer lost a wheel from his nearly-new 31' Limited near Tyler, Texas. It apparently did appreciable damage to the side of the trailer. No one was hurt.
No news yet of exactly what the failure was; it could have been a broken wheek, a broken spindle or a bearing failure for all I know. The trailer, while new this spring, has quite a few miles on it including trips from Texas to New Mexico, Region 9 rally, the Airstream factory, and a caravan across the Michigan UP.
I'll post more details as available.
