At this point I'd take the axles and trailer somewhere else!

Well I received a call today they have got the axles on the TT. The lean was corrected with the new axles and there is a 3 1/4" fender well clearance on the right side and a 3" on the left side. I guess I was correct in saying the axles were soft on the left side. Now let's see what Dexter engineers have to say when they analyze the old axles.

I would be afraid they would fold the TT in half when they lifted it. Seems there is not a lot of room to jack these TT up. Hope I never get a flat.

Yahoooo! Glad to hear the good news. I must say that you have had a good experience with the dealer and with the axle manufacturer who seemed set on doing the right thing.

My RV is in the dealership presently getting the oven fixed - again, this time Suburban sent the manifold and the pilot assembly - and my cupboard door installed (not warranty). If/when I get this stove fixed I will be very happy and I would be able to say that finally the trailer is trouble free (replacement radio still works).

It's seems I have had a great relationship with the dealer, Dexter and Forest River to get this corrected. As with everything, patience is what it takes. I certainly can not see how people trade their TTs very often as it takes time to actually get one working perfectly. Once that's accomplished, you just set back and enjoy it for many years. Good much with everything on yours Wayne. You certainly have been patient enough.

Thanks Chuck. Fingers crossed I get the oven fixed this week. I must say that the Atwood stove in my old Jayco never gave me a moment of grief. AAMOF nothing in that trailer failed and it never had one repair in the 3 years I owned it. I cannot say anything positive about these Suburban stoves.

I upgraded to 10 ply tires on both the truck and trailer when the time came to replace them. Truck because they were worn, trailer because FR put the basic minimum tire you could put on my size trailer.

I have been researching tires for this 27RLWS and can't find one that would really fit. These axles and tires are a tight fit in there and bigger profile tires just can't happen.

Chuck - check these sizes out. Can't remember what the size of our tires are or the distance in between, but as far as I can tell there are several here that might work. Look at the loaded radii. No need to get ones that total way above the axle rating (3500#).
