Since we are trying to help fellow RV'ers I'd like to also say when you are doing your axle alignment you should also consider the verticle alignment of your trailer at the Pinbox. If your trailer sits too high or too low at the Pinbox abnormal tire wear can occur on either the forward or rear axle. Just another thought!

I have heard this may be an alignment issue, but in this small number of miles I am thinking it may be a major axle or spring problem. Also, I am not sure if this is normal or not, but when I parked the trailer in a curve with the truck the wheels did not line up. The front looked like they were at an angle, and the rear looked straight. I don't mind paying for whatever repair it needs, but it would help to get some ideas as to what this may be. Thanks for any help.
Is it possible that the front tires were replaced, but the rear tires were not??... Another possibility is that the trailer was pulled for quite some time with the tongue High, not level...

My new keystone

I had the same issue with my Keystone Avalanche, headed for Alaska, got home 7 tires later. Had the axle re-aligned, now it is great. The alignment guy said he gets a lot of new RVís with axles out of alignment from the factory.
