No curbs but we have driven on our share of rough roads that could have created this issue. So goes the life of an RV'er, always something to fix.

All 4 wheels were out but only one tire showed wear. Not unusual according to the AS tech, JIm. I registered with the service desk at 7:00 AM, they picked up the trailer at 7:15 and returned it at 10:00 AM. Really nice experience. Taking the tour this afternoon.

The brake recall was a non event for us. Although the manufacture date was within the dates listed, our actuator was the older model and was not affected. Great news as far as I'm concerned.

greg since u are STILL THERE and this opportunity only comes rarely...

you might wanna ASK THEM to INDIVIDUALLY WEIGH each tire/wheel load.

they've got the gear to do this and it only takes a bit of time for them to tow it over.

they will give you a PRINTOUT of each tire/axle load,

which would be valuable for wear, rotation, loading and so on....

my unit (6 wheels) had SIGNIFICANT differences, with one tire carrying several 100 lbs more....

goog info, since my unit has the 1st generation actuator also, there is no need to RUSH in for an inspection.

u might wanna post this info in the recall thread too.

cheers

I used the CAT Scale several times to determine, that, yes, my solid axle [tandem] consistently showed different weight FF/RR. (Tanks empty, tanks full, different tanks filled, different furniture, etc, etc, etc). The "equalizer" only does so much. The discrepancy was relatively consistent.

Sorry that individual weigh scales are so expensive.
