?Tire sidewall rubbed slideout shaft

Yesterday I took my 5th wheel to tire store to get air valve replaced
I got all new tires 2 years ago, however over winter in storage the pressure slid to 70 lbs
when I took it to air up(before 1st 100 mile trip) they could only air up 3 of them
thereby leaving 4th one at 70lbs
after they fixed the valve - I noticed sidewall had significant damage due to hitting something
I soon found it was hitting my slideout shaft attached to frame(so I know it wasn't shaft moving)
all we came up with is that at 70lbs of pressure the one tire became a fat boy per se
right now at 90lbs it is good 1/2" from shaft
I've run these tires for 2 years and have had no issues - few thousand miles
damage was very recent
?? help is that what happened
looking at 1,500 mile drive one way in July
