cougar 5th wheel axle problems

Anyone that owns a 5th wheel made by Keystone having tires wear on the inside of the tire exactly alike on all 4 tires. Had axle worked on. third set of tires in 5 years. We beleive it to be an axle problem but cant get Keystone to believe. Anyone having the same problem. Getting expensive buying tires.

trailer axles have a bow built into them, if they got turned over and the bow is the wrong way, that would explain the excessive wear on all the tirs, usually an alignment problem doesn't wear all the tires the same. Just a starting point for you to check to try to resolve your problem.

Check the camber on the axles like noted above. Also cehck the axle weight rating and weigh the trailer. It might be worth the time to upgrade to a heavier axle.

Give TAFA Inc in Nashville a call @ 615) 254-0665. They fixed my Keystone Challenger a few years ago with the same problem. They are the premier axle people in the Southeast.
