Default uneven tire wear

Hi all,
I am new to this forum, please forgive if this subject has been discussed. Has there been any recall because of uneven tire wear? The tires on the right side of our trailer are not wearing even ( side with the door ). The tires on the other side look alot newer. We cannot go back to where we bought the trailer, the dealership no longer sales Fun Finder.
I would really like some help with this.
Thank you all so much,
Richard Woelkers

Did you buy your unit used or new? If new, the tires on one side would not be older than tires on the other side .... however depending on your location like in the southern part of the US, the tires on one side may have been exposed to the sun 24/7 so 'look' older.

As for wear, uneven wear is generally caused by an axle out of alignment. Remember, when turning, especially when backing up making a tight turn there is alot of twist on the tires/wheels and axle. An axle out of alignment is not unusual on a trailer of any kind.

Any decent alignment shop (one that does trucks and trailers along with autos) can check the axle alignment and correct it, if necessary.

What kind of Cruiser RV do you have? We own a 2013 Shadow Cruiser and just had to replace all 4 tires. We contacted the dealer we bought it new from and he said that it was due to cheap tires that were put on and also another issue is the axle being installed wrong. They have agreed to pay for the tires we replaced but we are waiting to hear if the axle is also part of the problem. We were told that the 2013 models have this problem but they stopped manufacturing them in July so the ones produced from late July 2013 onward don't have this issue.

Not sure if that helps or not but if you have any other questions feel free to ask.

We had the same issue with our 2012 model also.
They installed the wrong axles at the factory and we had to replace both axles and all 4 tires.
The tires didnt last 500 miles and they were all bald as cue balls.

Default Frame FLEXING

Lippert had to add 4 beams due to flexing and twisting. See below all the problems it has caused.Looking for some help. I own a 2012 Fun Funder Xtra 276 which has had nothing but problems. I'm looking for others that would be willing to tell me their story. I'm taking Cruiser RV, Lippert and Rocky MT Rv to Small Claims Court March 9th, 2015 due to all the problems I'm having with my trailer. I have only used it once but have had nothing but problems ranging from cabinets pulling away from the ceiling, windows not opening, doors not closing, pipes leaking, bathroom wall moving, trim falling off, bathroom cabinet pulling away from wall, electrical problems, sewer pipes leaking, frame problems, gaps in the roof with it moving, most of the wall and door paper pealing off and binding at the window corners, the rear bed being wired incorrectly to name just a few. If anyone has had these types of problems please contact me at tooltimeval@embarqmail.com.

Nope, not here. No problems like you expound. In fact, other than some minor tweeking nothing of consequence.

I'm very pleased with my 2012 XT 276.
