The repairman comes out next week. so until then it just sitting here. did find another mobile repair guy that is just starting his own business he from out of the area since the only here and that is several towns away was booked for 3 weeks and we made the appoint, waited several hours for them to arrive on the day scheduled appoint and called them. They canceled on us. so will not recommended them to anyone. so will find out in few days, did have him go ahead and order heavier duty leaf springs since the ones on ours have only 4. dealer been no help, they wanted us to drag it to them, like that would not do more damage, trying tell us the fuse need to reset in the break away cord. couple of other companies that work on rv in the area only one understand the rig would not move with the tires touching on the one side. will post when we find out what was wrong with it, with the storms the last few days our internet and power outages and we got couple more days to go have not been online much.

I had tread seperation on the tires that caused the tires to end up about 1/4 from each other. it looks like the leaf springs on one of the photos are flattened out.
I had total tread seperation on all of the tires. one of them only had 100 miles on it when it let go. I put truck tires on all of them and problem was solved. never got much help from forest river on this either.

well have new leaf springs upgraded to 6 instead of the factory 4. will replace the tries they are 2 years old made in 26 week of 2013. but the side that was touching are starting to separate. the tires are still really close on that side 1/2" apart. the repair guy even add extra leaf on that side, thought maybe the wieght on that side. this is passagner non slide side. rib still looks like it is tilted that way. he measured several times but thought possible if we still have that problem after new tires maybe one of the brackets was weld 1/2 inch off. so new springs and had the bearings packed. tires will have to wait until new year, out all the money on this and property taxes are due. still not happy and having the wheels that close makes me nervous. our previous 5th wheel a FR palomino puma blew out tires replaced with new tires them every trip and carried duct tape and gorilla glue since something broke every trip pretty much a lemon. so tire suspension problems make us nervous, we travel with our dogs, to dog shows. if we did not not owe so much would be trading this unit on another unit. We purchased just a few months before my dad passed away he wanted us to have something safe and did not tell us his cancer was back until after we got this unit. we travel to pretty isolated and back roads so if we break down most of the time we be out middle of no where. just hoping new tires will help solve this problem.
