Alignment issues 2012 Berkshire
Has any one had an alignment issue? I have had to replace both front tires, because the outside edge of both tires were worn down to nothing. I saw the steel belt showing through. The toe in was at +.58 on one tire and .60 for the other. total toe in was +1.17 (Standard is -0.05 to +0.14) FR is saying that the alignment was fine leaving the factory. Freightliner did the alignment and said there was no damage. Just needed the alignment. Also said it looked like it had always been set that way.
I have always checked the pressure, but never thought to check the tread depth every time. I just glanced at the tires and saw deep grooves in the tire and didn't think about it.
My question is: Do I have any recourse with FR over a bad alignment? Am I out the money for 2 new tires and the alignment even though I am still in the warranty period??
I also had it in the shop Aug 2012 for a noise in the front while driving down the road. At that time they checked the front bearings and probably never checked the alignment. When I took it to freightliner for the alignment with the new tires, he said he could tell from the noise the tires were making it was out of alignment.
Have been talking to Forest River, but they don't seem very responsive as of yet.
Thanks for any and all assistance.
