All the time. We first noticed it on the way home from the dealer, when we stopped to check on things.

LOL... We paid for the detail / protection plan. Once that's done, I'll be underneath removing the surface rust and painting. Then treating the surfaces so they'll be easier to wipe-down after our trips. I'll probably catch a lot of flak about it at the campgrounds for doing the silly stuff I do

Yep, they look bent! Good news is they are supposed to - this is how the axels get camber


If you really want to freak out your new-to-RVing spouse, have them "spot" you as you practice "backing" in a empty parking lot...when S/He gets a eyeful of your rig's tires moving in and out as you turn the rig, they will probably freak out ....I know my wife did with our new TT many years ago

<raises hand! Me too!

I screamed for him to STOP NOW! as he was backing in to our driveway two trips ago. I was convinced that one wheel had loose lug nuts and was coming OFF, right there!

Speaking of which... I checked all 4 wheels and one of them is clunking a bit. I need to check the lug nuts or maybe the wheel bearing needs to be repacked or something.
