$1100 dollar mistake! alignment problem!

I bought a new 2012 Georgetown 280 Motorhome a year ago last May. After only 5000 miles I noticed the inside of both front tires was worn bad. I took to alignment shop to have checked. I was told the problem was the Ford Frame was aligned correctly when it left the factory. When Forest River gets them and adds the motorhome to the frame causes the alignment to be wrong because of all the added weight. He told me they should realign after building but don't. I asked about Ford Warranty and he told me they would not honor it because Forest River caused the problem. Still not sure but had it realigned and put 2 Michelin instead of Continental's back on. Expensive lesson! Hope this helps someone else.

Contact Forest River directly. There have been several posts regarding this problem and each time FR has payed for the alignment. Good luck and welcome!
