Good to hear the tires are still rolling. If you are stopping in Santa Fe, I believe there's a Discount Tire on Cerrillos Rd. If you've stopped, you are probably at a campground, but if you see this earlier, Trailer Ranch on Cerrillos is the best we've found there.

Well, I kept looking at the tires, and they kept looking the same, so we came on home. The tires made it fine, but they are worn out. The two on the curb side are worn to the wear indicator bars on the out side treads. The trip total was 14,745 miles, and we are tired. Best I can figure, the tires have a total of 19 K +,- miles.

Now comes the decision of what to do about the alignment.

Ask the bigger RV dealers what big truck shop they send their work to. As torsion axles are used on other trailers -- construction, dump, enclosed, cargo -- maybe a trailer dealer of that sort would be good.

Steve, glad to see you got home safely. We "only" drove 10,200 miles on our trip and we are still exhausted, so you may have to take a vacation.
