Picked it up today, they raised the unit by 4 inches. They said it was the new springs, plus it keeps it from rubbing the wheel wells. When I extend the stabilizer jacks, they are almost fully extended to make them work, or I have to use a 4X4 underneath. Has anyone experienced this?

Also, check out my other thread, look what we found on the inside.....This Sucks!!!

Here is a picture of how far the jack has to go down now, and this is level ground.

I seem to be having similar tire problems... not sure what's going on but I've had multiple flats and uneven tire wear. I've had the trailer for just under a year and a half now. The posts here have been informative and will help me when I head back to see the dealer later today.

Unhappy Axle Problems

We have had our 26tb for a little over a year. The tires are wearing on the inside and when you look at it from the back they looked bowed. We had to use the spare just to get home from our camping trip, as the passenger tire was showing wire in the tread.
We took it to Economy RV'S in Mechanicsville, MD (where we purchaesd it) and have been given the royal run-around.
HELP

i had the same problem with a hyperlite 26rdb. sent it to alignment place twice and axles were fine. bought better set of tires and kept 50lbs of air in them at all times and that took care if it.

UPDATE: Forest River is picking up the TT on 11/4. They will take it back go through it and make sure everything is fixed. We can provide a list of everything we want checked/fixed. They are going to give us 6 months bumper to bumper warranty added on to our extended warranty. We will goto Fort Wayne and pick it up when they are finished and meet the guys who have been working with us, and give us a tour of the place. I have to say, they are working with us to fix the problems. I have to give them credit for that.

I had to replace 1 tire in the first year, with my 22' Gray Wolf. It's an 09. I swear they put the cheapest tires they could fine with these trailers. Since then, I've had uneven wear, and warnings from my trailer place to "keep an eye on them". We just went ahead and replaced the other 3 tires. It's not we've gone 1000's of miles either. FR has given me the run around, and wanted me to keep track of the wear on the old tires. Well, I don't have time for the song and dance. I'm sure that's what they want...for you to just put your own, good tires on the trailer.
Glad you're standing up to them, and have time to fight them!
