Dual tires balanced?

We are having our RV worked on for some problems related to the driveshaft. In the process we've discovered that three of the rear tires were more than 2 ounces out of balance each.
That's been fixed so now we are onto rechecking vibration problems and the driveshaft.
So just as an FYI those new motorhomes may come out with dual tires that have not been balanced.

The Ford place said it was the most messed up drive shaft they've ever seen and needed to be replaced/fixed and sent to a drive shaft specialist and it wasn't safe to drive. Then told us they couldn't help us any further because they didn't have a lift capable of getting it up to work on it. We found another Ford dealer that has invested in a certified RV tech with lots of motorhome experience and a 30,000 pound lift.
They are doing their own diagnosis to narrow down the cause of our driving problems, noises and vibrations. They discovered the out-of-balance dual tires. Tomorrow they are checking the drive shaft.

Glad when they did mine, it was good to go. Three shafts and two carrier bearings. Everything else underneath looked good as far as the stretching went. Very well done.

Sounds like someone may have made it out of faze. That will cause havoc.
