DS Front tire worn on inner edge.

looking for suggestions as too why my driver side front tire would be worn way more than the rest of the tire. All other tires seem to be waring equally.
Thanks

The most likely reason is alignment. Now, what caused it? Wheel bearings, loose wheel, shackle problem, or does it need a basic axle alignment.

I agree with MM it’s time to do a very careful inspection. Before you use it again. I lucked out, backing up to park it, heard a strange sound. Broke a shackle, looking around found others that needed replaced also.

Wear in only inner rib on one tire on axle usually indicates one of two possible issues.

Id first jack up side in tire thats wearing and grab tire at 12 and 6 oclock positions and wiggle top to bottom and back and forth. You are checking for either a loose wheel bearing or damaged bearing and race on that hub

If no play is felt Id remove and inspect and clean and repack that axle bearing being sure you do the initial 50 ft lbs of torque on axle nut then back off the nut to install spring keeper in place. Or cotter pin.

Swap tires front to back on that side only...verify proper cold inflation pressures and then tow and monitor tire for signs of continued wear

If wear shows on that tire swapped on the axle then CAMBER is out on that axle on that side

A good trailer shop can correct that issue

Smile tire wear

Tuns out it was the tire it's self. broken cords, tire was approx 2 inches larger than the others, and threads had come thru in two spots. Tredit stood up and has replaced all 4 with G rated Saliuns in the same size 235/80r16g rather than the f's.

Great that you found a reason for you issues. However, keep in mine that NO rv trailer manufacture aligns there axles before leaving the factory. They simply just install all the parts and send them out the door.

I'm surprised no one mentioned inflation. I would have that first being the easiest and least expensive possibility.

Everyone should be well aware of tire inflation. Especially those who tow trailers. If you are not checking them before each tow or have a TPMS, you should not be towing anything.
