Thumbs down help

I have a gray wolf with 5373 miles on it. The trailer is a 2012 gray wolf 17 bh. The dealer has told me he cannot do any more for me. I think he should do more than give me the factory number and to handle it my self the trailer has been at the dealer for six weeks so far.all four tires are bald on the inside of tire.the dealer said the factory will not honor claim.i have called the factory and the do not return my calls.

Year and model always helps when posting .
I assume it's under warranty ?
What does the dealer say is the issue ?
Why do they say it's not covered ?

Wear on the inside tread on the tires is sometimes an indicator of overload. Have you ever scaled the camper to see where you are relative the it's GVWR?

Could very well be overload, but it's a sure indication of bent spindles or axles. Either way, FR should stand the cost of new axles & tires. It's bs that they put axles on that close to the limit, which they state, that you can't even put normal stuff in them to go camping. I think I would put a set of tires on it and tow it back to the factory and confront someone there. He could always put a sign on it and tow it back and forth in front of the dealer.

All I was thinking was the loaded weight would either point at a cause or put that agrument to rest if it's far from being overloaded.

Nail40, this information from a different thread could help you.

"...try contacting Bob Miller in the Cherokee Grey Wolf/Wolf Pack Warranty Administratin area in Topeka, IN. Bob's phone number is (260) 593-0023, and his e-mail is bmiller@forestriverinc.com." Its the last post in this thread.

Do you feel that your dealer is advocating for you with the factory? Doesn't sound that way to me and I suggest that your post a negative dealer thread under Dealer Reviews.

Finally, a little late night reading that might apply to you, too.

2011 Grey Wolf Axle/Tire Problems

2012 Graywolf 26RL problems and my fixes.


I hope this can help you. Good luck!
