I've been reading this thread with great interest and have to ask a few questions out of sheer curiosity. First off, I was under the impression that it is normal for the torsion axle
(like my Dexter 2200 lb) to be sort of bowed in the middle? I don't know why?
Second, I've read here about alignment. Is aligning a trailer the same as one gets for a vehicle? That is to have the proper camber and tow? Then is getting a trailer aligned something one does when it is observed that it's dog legging or not towing right, or in this case, eating tires
? Or is this a periodic maintenance thing one should just "do." I also am not sure if some stickies have torsion axles...doubt if many RV shops around here would have any experience at all with a FG trailer.
One gets a vehicle aligned here in NY more often than desired due to horrific winters and the aftermath of pot holes (ouch) fallen into in spring. Vehicle starts pulling one way or another...yuck.
Another question: does/should one rotate tires
on a trailer after so many miles (like one does with a vehicle, every couple of oil changes or so)?
Thank you very much for the post and the opportunity for learning that it brings, but I am sorry for your tire troubles. I hope it's nothing too serious or expensive and that all will be well soon.
