Hi all - we have a 2010 Rockwood Premier 2154G and we recently noticed a slight bounce that you can feel in the tv. Anyone know if this unit has leaf springs or coil springs. It's currently not in my driveway so I can't look. Also a manual reference?
With help from Forest River Service, we found the problem. Scalloped tire on the inside only. Figured a belt broke and likely soon to come through. Took a little investigation, so time... but minimal cost... and no roadside breakdown. Great support from Forest River.
It had uneven wear. Only inner side of tire was worn. We then found wires coming out the inside of the tire showing that the belt was broken. Both tires ended up being that way. Cheap tires put on by the previous owner. Glad we didn't have a blowout on the Hwy.
Trailer tires are a bit more expensive than normal car tires because they have extra side wall steel in them
Quite a bit heavier as well
If you can take the load off of them for long storage periods and protect them from UV they last 7 or 8 years of normal use according to my tire shop
