It would be nice to think that since the PO never mentioned any trouble.
It had, however, brand new tires and wheels on it when we purchased it. The PO stated he had replaced the tires because they were old and had just bought wheels and tires together. I thought at the time that was a good thing now I would have loved to have seen the old tires first.
I took it to a local semi truck/trailer shop to see if they could help it. Their alignment guy said that, because it was a Torq-Flex, he could only re-arch it by bending it in the exact middle and that he didn't believe it would hold the proper camber for long.
I'm not going to cry over spilled milk for very long. I intend to work on my own solution. My first mate says she wants to keep it and, anyway, it wouldn't be right to pass it along to the next poor sap.....

EDIT: Once it's fixed we will most likely keep it for many years so doing it right is the real thing.

I hear you. Sounds like the right attitude at this point.

Hey everyone- just a latent update on my refrigerator problems. First I want to thank everyone for the suggestions, we tried different configurations of fans, which only helped a little - not enough of an improvement to accept the parasitic draw on the batteries.

I ended up replacing the refrigerator with a slightly smaller Norcold unit (Dometic didnít make one the size I needed). This Norcold is rated for the vent spacing and has been working flawlessly. It really is the correct unit for this trailer. One bonus - itís now a 3way! I was able to sell the Dometic for a little, so my investment to correct this design flaw of CruserRV was about $750. Its working great and iĎm excited about this upcomming season.

Agnitio, Glad for the "better than expected" outcome. Now the enjoyment you had hoped for can really begin. YAY!
