I had those same tires on my last camper. Wore badly on outer half of 1 tire. Turns out the rear axle hanger was almost 1/2 inch to far back on right side of trailer. Hangers welded on wrong from factory. With a level held against rear tire, it is no where near front tire.

Wear on the inside and outside indicates under inflation. Wear in the center is indicative of over inflation.

Pressure is checked before each trip and inflated to recommend pressure.

I'll check them tomorrow with a level.

I do know that when placing my xchocks one side is closer then the other, as one chock is extended more then the other

this link has instructions on how to measure your trailer to see if axles are aligned to frame. http://lci1.com/images/support/lipsheet/0088.pdf

Only reason a tire will wear on one side...Alignment. Don't waste your money on a new axle, they can can be just as bad. Bring it to a Big Truck suspension/alignment shop and have it aligned. It will cost $150-200.00. RV dealers are not equipped or trained to do this...I had mine done a couple years ago. No problems since...

Would the alignment be covered by warranty? My unit is still under factory warranty for another couple months

We had the same on our 5th wheel. Replaced the bearings and problem was fixed. The only other thing I can think of is if you are really loaded up? We check our trailer on a truck scale when going on big trips.

That's not entirely true, a bad or loose bearing will cause the same problem as will a bent spindle.

I feel we are very weight conscious wife we originally towed with a 1/2 and haven't added anything else since then.

I have an appointment next week with the alignment shop, they are going to ensure everything is square and work from there
