Uhhh, do they build that tire in a 15 inch rim size? I've only seen it in 16 inch, 14 ply stuff.

I'm not sure...?
Guess that why I put out there the question for alternative tires.. I wouldn't figure tires would loose tread at about 300 miles in the one trip taken after delivery if the dealer and or manufacturer had set the tire pressures correctly.

Next door neighbor with a 2012 Salem Bunk House 33 foot jsut had a dealer here look at his trailer and determine that his camber is out on the axles.

The dealer Couch's RV nation in Ohio want him to ship the axles back to them and (500$ later) make their own determination on if it is the camber or not.
If not then he has to pay to get the items shipped back to Canada.

oh plus the cost of shipping his original tires and rims as well.

New Axles 1200 dollars.

My suggestion was to take his trailer to a heavy truck repair location and get them adjusted/corrected.
So much for the warranty.

27RKSS Unusual Tire Wear

We have a 2011 27RKSS that we got at the end of March this year. At two thousand miles, the left rear tire showed very unusual wear high on the inside. The tire showed 55 LBs pressure. Took pictures, took the trailer back to the dealer and sent emails with the pictures to Forest River Tech. Support. They said, "See what dealer says.". Dealer swapped the spare with the bad wheel and said all was OK with axles and wheels. Now two thousand miles later, two other tires are beginning to show inside wear and scolloping. The dealer has hinted that the original equipment tires are "very cheap" and recommended replacing them. I will be sending more pictures to Forest River.

We will be beginning a 5000+ mile trip in February. We will be starting with new tires regardless, but I am going to get another claim on record with Forest River.

Having your tires balanced is important, it reduces vibration on the campers frame work and interior, suspenion, tire wear as well as control while towing.

I have to check to see if there is any weights on the rims or not.

My 5 tires in oour 2012 27RKSS are at 40 to 41 lbs pressure which after 1700 miles from the purchase to today is unusual. Either they are all loosing pressure at the same alarming rate (nitrogen in 4 - air in the 5th) or they were never quality controlled for pressure when they left the factory or the dealer.

10 lbs in 3 months is concerning if they are not holding air.

Check the back of the rims as well. The manufacture and the dealer do not balance the tires, you can see that by looking at the campers on there sales lot. They are transported as you see them. The class A,B and the C motor home are balanced from the truck manufacture, Chevy, Ford,etc,etc in some cases the truck manufactures will balance the tires from the back of the rim so one can not see the weights.
