I did and they're not scheduled for the FROG rally.

Ok, I just double checked that they will be in Goshen, just not for the rally. I guess I mistyped my request.

You think they could make some money at the rally. I didn't know when the rally was and had just noticed they were in Goshen. You got it right. My brain is running slow. Too much input.

Their websites says "Shane and Jami" are tentatively scheduled to be at the FROG rally in Goshen. It says "not yet officially confirmed".

I made my way back to the dealer today to snap some pictures of the rear axles. Here is what I have:

I hope these picture make sense to you all. The difference between the right and left side is the location of the tire.

With the axle bolts not being torqued correctly, an application of the trailer brake will cant the axles. Reverse braking will have the opposite cant to the rear..

Thanks for posting the pictures, Chuck. Maybe once the dealer re-sets the bolts in the slotted holes and levels the axle the problem might be cured without the need to replace the axle ...?

The dealer called me today and told me the TT has been fixed. He said the lean has been taken care of by the axle work. I'm crossing my fingers so let's see what happens when I pick it up Monday afternoon.

Sent these pictures of to Dexter Axle and to their engineers. Although the official word has not come back yet from them, warrantee division believes the axles are the issues and need to be replaced.
I accepted the camper this way in an attempt to work with the dealer, but the TT will slowly slip down onto the axles and the lean will return. Then the dealer will have to accept the alternative of replacement. Just takes time and patience. I'm getting to know several folks from Forest River and Dexter Axle as well so all I not lost. I have time.
