Salem 195BH leans to passenger side ?

Hello All,

2015 Salem 195BH 21'

So I've put about 5000 miles on this thing, and just after this last trip its started leaning to the drivers side. I checked some measurements, and the axles are the same distance from the ground. But, the passenger side spring is more compressed than the drivers side... by about 1.25 inches! There is no difference in loading today from the way its always been loaded since we bought it. Tanks are empty.

Its as if the pass side spring has just decided to give up. I will say that I moved the axle on this trailer, but there is no sign anything I did is causing the lean. Plus, that was about 1500 miles ago. Oh, and the FR suspension is crap... when the axle was out, I was able to grab either leaf spring and move them side to side about 3-4 inches (like a hammock swings). Pretty crappy.

Anyone seen this on theirs?

No problems with mine, did you buy the extended warranty from Forest River?
