Broke Axle brackets

Wanted everyone to know about what happened to me so that you can check your camper's axles. We were setting up our camper a couple of weeks ago and I noticed that the left wheels were too close together. When I looked under the camper to see why I noticed that one of the axle brackets were broke. After further inspection I found that all of the other axle brackets were worn out and would be breaking soon. I was lucky enough to have purchased an extended warranty with my 2015 Sierra so I contacted a local RV repair and they worked with Cornerstone to get the brackets replaced. It only cost me $100.00, my deductible. I was lucky in the fact that we were already in our CG and not setting on the side of the road broke down. Hopefully these two pictures will help others to know what to look for on their camper. The RV repair shop replaced all 8 of the hinges on both sides of the camper because the other hinge brackets were wearing out.

This is a pretty common sight on the rigs with 4ga plates. Every wheel bearing repack these are normally checked and the side of the frame should be inspected for flex points or cracks.
