I have about 19K miles on my 2003 U/A, and it is a model 40K. I have just noticed that my right front tire is badly worn. The wear is evenly across the tread with the edges rounded as you would expect with a front tire. I have never had the coach weighed, but I have been keeping a full fresh water tank when traveling. I just wonder if other Ultimate owners have noticed this kind of wear? It is bad enough that I will probably replace the tire at the next opportunity. By the way the tire is a Michelin 295/80/R22.5.

Last week I had my 2005 Winnebago front end aligned. It has 2500 miles on it. They had to add wedges to allow them to set the front end to Ford factory specifications. I asked the mechanic how bad it was and he said it was so far out I would be replacing tires at 25,000 miles.

Have you had your alignment checked?
