I don't want to be an alarmist, but do I understand correctly that you now have just 5/16 of an inch space between the tire and the side of the wheel well? Did you say a new axle
was installed by the former owner? Might that axle
not be the correct width? I just got curious and checked the tires/wheels on our Casita--there is about 3 inches of clearance.
I hope I'm wrong on all these presumptions, but if I had only 5/16'' clearance, I wouldn't even pull my trailer out of the driveway, unless it was going to the axle
Hope I'm wrong. Hope I'm wrong. Hope I'm wrong!:shg
