Worn Passenger Side Tire on TT

I've taken my TT on two out of town trips since I bought it, a total of no more than 1,000 miles since I pulled it off the dealer lot new. The passenger side tire's tread on the trailer are worn almost out on the outer tread ring - I hope this is making sense. I do not have a sway control on the trailer and it does sway a bit, but nothing I haven't been able to control. Could the swaying be wearing out the tread? The drivers side tires are in great condition. The center tread rings and inner tread rings of the passenger side are also in good shape. The lugs on the tires are tight and the tires are on the hub correctly. Any advice would be helpful, I don't want to blow out a tire every 6 months or 6,000 miles. (If there is already a thread on this, I apologize. I searched but couldn't find one.)

Is it on both tires or mainly on one axle?

Friend had a new TT that a tire wore out after a 3 hundred mile trip. Turned out he had a broken spring even though it was a new TT

That would do it, broken stay pin on the axle would do it too..

I took it back to the dealer yesterday to have them check it. Will post back when I have a verdict. Fortunately for me this is still under warranty.
