Thanks for info / feedback

After further discussion with CW the weight concentration in that area really does make sense compounded by the fact that it was running on cheap tokymoto tires. So I'm going to ensure the hot water heater is drained before rolling anywhere and shift the cast iron cookware to a different spot to try and slow down the wear factor, I may just have to buy a tire for that corner faster than the other four. I think if I have to work on bearings / brakes for any reason I can handle it having done similar work on cars for years. I'll keep the alignment second opinion in mind as an option. Thanks to everyone for input, happy travels!

Does your Roo have torsion or spring axles? You can make some measurements on your own to see if there may be an alignment issue. Take some diagonal measurements between the 2 axles. I think 1/4" difference is what they call "acceptable". Can also measure the load at each axle, by having it on flat level surface and measuring the height from axle to frame. These measurements are crude, but it may help point to the cause without spending a bunch of money for someone to tell you, that's not the problem.

Had the same tire wear issue with my Rockwood (torsion axles). Three of the spindles were bent; tires bad at 6000 miles. Warranty covered alignment. The tires were replaced. I carry a tread depth gauge and check about every 1000 miles. Now after another 7000 miles, 3 tires show no measureable wear, one shows 1/32 on one edge. By the way, these are also Chinese tires. Hard to find any ST tires that aren't Chinese.
