3 hrs old, anybody else have this???

Bought my 2016 2604ws, drove it 3 hrs to my sisters place. When I go to open the slide it makes a bad noise. Upon investigation we find this....look at the pictures, sliced my tire and copper piece dragged across tire. I am told it may need adjustment or wrong tire size??
Any body have this happen?

What's odd is how it happened now, but didn't happen on the trip from the plant to the dealer.

That is true, so the dealer must have done something to cause it??

Looks like there might be a recall on this. To me it is just too close to the tire. I would get it back to the dealer asap.

Is there a recall? Or are.you just saying?
It's looking like they put the wrong size wheels on it!

Looks like it needs a lift kit, heaver springs or smaller tire. My vote would be for the first two.

I recall another post with a similar issue, I think also with a FR product. I do two other RV forums so it could have been there also.

Sorry this happened but I doubt the dealer did anything to cause this issue. It probably was this way from day one. It probably started at the factory but the tow company having a different towing set up might not have been as noticeable. At any rate as others have said back to the dealer ASAP but watch that tire it can easily blow out now. Good Luck !!!!

Axles with springs, or torsion type?
