Did Lippert require your dealer to provide them with certain measurements?

I was curious as mine has been at the dealer for the same issue. I finally got all 4 tires replaced this week. They were the Vail Sport ST's which were the worse tires I have ever had on a trailer. All 4 of my tires tread were wore out in the inside and outside after just 5 months of light use. On top of the tread being wore out the side walls completely rotted while sitting at the dealer over the winter. I am figuring that is why the tires were replaced. They did my measurements for the axles last week so I am still waiting on Lippert's finding.

Why not just bring it to a heavy duty truck, trailer suspension shop. A quality alignment there will cost around $150.00. It WILL fix your problem and yes this can be done there. An RV dealer will not have the equipment to do this. If Forrest River or the dealer will pay for great! If not your problem will at least be solved and for $150.00 you can get on with using your trailer..

I would do that if it wasn`t still under warranty. The dealer has numerous other problems to fix while FR, Lionshead Specialty Tire and Lippert continue the rounds of finger pointing. Lionshead stepped up to the plate and replaced the tires due to the sidewall issues. Lets see if Lippert has an explanation for the excessive tread wear.

And in the mean time you have a camper you are no doubt making payments on that is just sitting. Not good if you can start using it with a possible $150 fix. Just saying.

I might consider that after my slide can go out without ripping the flooring, my awning wont leak,my outdoor kitchen door will open, the steps will pull out, and my bedroom windows can open and close.

Might note that I said, "Not good if you can start using it with a possible $150 fix."

Got ya OldCoot. I just get frustrated. This is my 4th new unit and it is always the same ole problem with poor QC, poor workmanship, and cheap components. The funny thing is...after the 1st year I rarely have problems.
