Im not really doubting the bent axle reports but, can you possibly imagine what kind of torque or "moment" in engineering terms it takes to bend a three inch metal tube three feet away from the fulcrum point pressing on a point only 10-12" away from the other side of the fulcrum point.

Had wear on curbside tire after mobile service checked and repacked the bearings. Didn't watch the entire procedure so don't know if they torqued after. could not tell if there was abnormal wear on opposite tire but took it to CW and had alignment checked. Within specs so went back on the road. No further problems so can only conclude that not being properly torqued can cause this type of abnormal wear although I would expect it to create a wobble or wavy pattern.

I'm having the same tire wear problem on my 2008 2955 RL. Already replaced one axle and now the other axle shows tire wear problems. Repair shop couldn't find any problem with the axle. I will go back and have the leaf springs checked to see if they can support those 6k axles. Thanks to all!

I’d venture that some of the tire wear issues folks are having is caused by...
.. wrong air pressure for load
.. suspension hasn’t been routinely lubed...
***If it’s not a wet volt system it needs to be and I’d correct that before anything else
.. wheel bearing issue on tire with wear.. either too loose and or failing
.. broken spring or worn out leaf spring hangers due to lack of lubrication or extreme angle during backing

... yellow plates will not be on all suspension systems.will depend on year of the RV and whether it has the “correct track” installed.. not all do... mine doesn’t

Our brand new 2016 3160RL had little to NO grease in all of the zerk fittings. So now before every trip, hubby pumps grease in all zerk fittings & greases the wheel bearings. Two yr old tires seem to be wearing evenly.
