left side of my trailer is low

2016 Cedar Creek36CKTS. I know the street side is heavier what with the residential fridge, stove and all, but it sits at least 2 inches lower than the other side. Nothing broken, everything looks good underneath. Talked to a local truck suspension shop. They said they see a lot of them and want to replace all four springs to the tune of $1200.00. Seems a little steep. I'm sure others have had this problem and would like to know how it was fixed or if it was fixed. I know the ultimate cure would be a trip to MorRyde for a new IS but it's just not in the cards for now. Any ideas?

We don't have your model, but we had a similar problem with our 21' travel trailer.

The springs one one side had gone 'flat' and you couldn't see it unless the tt was on the flat concrete slab of our storage unit. We had the local rv place replace the springs on the one side of the trailer that was flat and have had no problems since.

If you are mechanically inclined simply replace the springs yourself. New RV unit China springs are 1/4" smaller than American made steel springs from aftermarket companies like etrailer or Michigan Spring. I saw the flatness and lack of curvature on a 2019.5 Hathaway with 1 3/4" wide factory leafs. You'll be stunned when you see the low price of a new aftermarket 2" wide spring set. Great time to upgrade to wet bolts also. Be sure to mount the grease fitting toward the inside of the frame so you can more easily access with a grease gun.
