Tire Question

I have a 2015 Forrest River CruiseLite 24QBXL that I purchased new last year? All 4 tires are showing the same wear pattern on the inside tread.

Any suggestions?

That is typical of overloaded. Have you had it weighed?


I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left

Tire Question

Assuming the tires are not over inflated or overloaded. My experience is they are not balanced.

Check trailer weight fully loaded. The way you tow it. It looks as though you maybe running over axle weight. ...Dusty

It's a sign of:
Bad wheel bearing. Jack it it... is there any wiggle in the wheel/hub?

Overloaded (too much weight distribution!)

Under inflated?

Alignment bad. Have you curbed the trailer, ever? It doesn't take much to push the axles out of spec.

Wheels not balanced. Have you ever had this done? It's time.

Thanks for all the recommendations.

I have not had it weighed.

Tire pressure is as indicated on sidewall.

Haven't checked wheel bearings, but all 4 tires look the same.

Haven't had the balanced.

As far as weight distribution, when I purchased they did no adjustments. This is my first travel trailer and I have never had any experience with a WD hitch. I youtubed, how to set it up. I got the fender opening height about 1 inch difference between the front and rear. Any other ideas in reference to the hitch?

My plan is to pack the wheel bearings and have the tires balanced at that time.

Weigh it, troubleshoot from there.

If you are going to weigh it, do so with the WD hitch on, since this shifts hundreds of pounds off the hitch and onto the trailer wheels.
