XLR 30HFS5 leaning to one side

Hello all,
I have a 2013 XLR 5th wheel toy hauler (30HFS5) that is leaning to the passenger side by about 3 inches. I have measured the suspension components and have not found anything off alignment. My service shop also measured it and also did not find anything out of alignment. He did say the leaf springs were compressed (for lack of better words.) He said the cause may have been from all of the heavy components being installed on that side. I.e. The fridge, stove, even the generator is off center to that side. He estimated 3K lbs extra on that side. Has anyone else experienced or seen this before?

Any info will help, thanks,
Bryan

My BLUERIDGE 3025 had same issue but left kitchen side. Found a cracked leaf spring, replaced warranty. There is a problem with some lippert springs that are imported. Look very closely, when replaced, 2nd one then found.

Leaf Springs are cheap, $30-40 each set. Tractor Supply, Northern Tool or etrailer.com. Upgrade now before you bend the hanger or drop the whole trailer on the road.

My shop looked at it and replaced the leafsprings. He said the low side had flattened out. Upgraded in length and # of springs to increase its load capacity. Hopefully it will last longer this time.

Any comments on how long the leafsprings typically last?

Thanks for the replies.
