Look for 8 lug wheels. 7k axles have 8 lugs.

Most 7k axles have 8 lugs! 6ks have 6 lugs...

Well then.. I just looked at a photo of my wheels. 6 lugs. It's a 2014 model. Good thing I will be seasonally camped?

You can slide under the camper and it will be tagged on the axle, but like the others said 6 lug = 6000lbs axles.
I would look into getting them swapped, seasonal or not.

The saga continues with the axles on these units. Members of the Sierra, our sister units, are having some bent axles it appears. Most of us had a suspicion that this was going to happen, unfortunately for just one, so far, that is true. What's worse is the axle manufacturer is denying help stating the axles were overloaded.

The Sierra 365 owners came to an amicable resolution with FR over there bent axles. I'm sorry to say I don't think this will be the last of them.

what was the resolution I have had brake issues with my 2013 365SAQ from the first trip

I never had any option on the order slip for 7000# axles or I would have selected it I stumbled across this form looking to see if I was the only one and as I see I certainly am not

I find it kind of amusing now reading this that I emailed FR about my concern asking why the 7000# axle was not offered and have not gotten any response at all

If I recall correctly, they sent axles to the nearest dealer and they were replaced. It should be in the Sierra section of the forum. On phone right now and can't search that well.
