Tire wear, bent axle?

I had a flat tire on my 2016 Rockwood TT due to turning too tight into a parking lot and running over a sharp curb that tore the tire on the passenger side. I was going 1-2 mph. The car folks put on the spare then we went to their shop and they put on a new tire. Now 3-4,000 miles later we have significant wear on the inside of the new tire. All 3 of the other tires look good.

I didn't notice how they jacked up the trailer when the tire was changed and don't know if they jacked it up on the axle or the frame. Tire inflation is good and there seems to be camber in the axle. The tire is not rubbing anywhere on the trailer.

What do you think is going on? Bent axle or spindle? Bad tire? Who fixes these types of issues and how are they best diagnosed? Thank you.

Can you get a pic across the axle from wheel to wheel?

That looks like it could be more than one issue. It could be bent axle and alignment.
Since that's the side that hit the curb, it could have pushed the axle back a little.

I'd try to find a good utility trailer shop and have them look at it.

A friend of mine had the same problem. The fix was to replace the piece that connects the front axle and the rear axle that was bad on the passenger side. I believe it was an ezflex part they replaced both sides with solid steel (old fashion ones) problem fixed. Good luck A regular RV repair shop did it.
