Rear axle issues

I have a 2009 crossroads Seville 35 CK. I have had to replace the tires, the rear springs and lately the rear aluminum wheels due to breakage.
I was just wondering if anybody else is having similar issues.

Don't recall any rim failures over the years. Tires - yes lots of issues, springs - a few - do a search and you will find a few posts on spring replacements. Most have had axle issues and several have had to be replaced.

I never got much life out of tires on our Seville. Had to take the trailer in for an alignment every other year. If we would have kept it I would have swapped the axles out to something a little more quality.

I never hit a curb, and didn't use a slider with my short bed so no overly sharp turns either.

I'd go to a weight scale and check each axle weight while hooked to the tow vehicle. It is pretty common for the rear axle to carry more weight than the front, especially if the trailer sits nose high.

My 2008 Seville which was bought new in 2009 has two wheel rims which are showing cracked spokes, one wheel has three, the second one has one, this is a safety hazard that should be recalled on the rims!
Imagine a wheel coming off on the hight way going 110 KM and hour, this would surely result in a train wreck!

Check with the manufacturer of the rims to see if they will help.

That's nice, who is the manufacturer of the rims, I don't see any name on the rims in question, as far as I am concerned Cross Roads should be responsible for the rims as they are the manufacturer of the RV......Just my thoughts!

Do you have a extended warranty plan? If not I would say the CR warranty expired a long time ago.
I have a feeling you will have to bite the bullet and pickup the tab for a set of new rims.

Did you look over the inside of the rims (side that faces inside of rv) There should be some type of marking in there. Of course corrosion might hide it.
Usually parts supplied by an outside source is warranted by the outside source, not Crossroads.

I just had the rims off my 2011 Seville (time for new tires) but didn't see any manufacturer info. Just a weight rating but no pressure rating (3580 lbs & Crossroads Service says 80 psi).

I was going to go to load range G tires (110psi) but couldn't without new rims. Next set of tires on this one gets rims & tires & maybe axles.
