RVThere......I would also agree that you have a SLIGHT alignment issue, which isn't bad after 46K. You also have an underinflated issue on that same tire compared to the other. Have you ever four corner weighed your coach. I have a 36' coach and run 105 psi in the fronts. On a 40', you should be at least 105'. You may be a little heavy on that side.

22.5 tires are now outrageously priced. You're at the 6 year mark on your tires. I would replace the front two and keep the good one for a spare. Make sure everything is correct on the coach and then do a two axle alignment. It should be about $150.00. Once done, you'll know your coach is going down the road straight. By doing the two fronts now, it won't be such a shock when you replace the four rears in a year or two. I wouldn't move tires from the rear after 46k, you're asking for issues.

Uneven Tire wear / Axle problem possible

Same issue here. Just got back from 4600 mile vacation to the North East, NH, NY, OH. Noticed the left rear tire bald on the inside. The right front tire is wearing more the the others. Bought TT in May'12. Returned it to the dealer and was told the axles had no "camber". and that the axles were defective. Dealer will try to warranty the problem. To Be Continued.

Well, the factory, Lippert, is sending two new axles since they are still under warranty. Now we are trying to get two tires replaced under warranty. Lippert says Forest River should supply tires.

That is great! Glad to hear it when a manufacturer stands behind its warranties and delivers.
