Axle/Tire issues?


Brand New SS26SI owner here with a question. I have an appointment on Thursday to get a list of items fixed and would like to have them look at axles and tires, they appear to have issues but I don't really know. It appears that the axles are offset and or the tires/rims are having issues. I have included a couple of images, any feedback would be appreciated.

Was the trailer put into that spot straight? Or was it backed in from the side and turned into the spot? That's what the tires look like when a tandem axle trailer is backed and turned at the same time. The tires pivot around a point between the 2 axles. One tire is forced outward and the other inward.

Yea it was backed and turned. That makes sense, just appeared that the whole wheel was forced inward (not just the tire).

This is definitely a TIL. Found this video also:

We have the dual axle secure stance system and the tires do the same thing just like the video you posted. So that's what they suppose to do. When we first got ours thought had major problem, but this is normal.

Pull forward a few feet then back it straight into the spot & then look at the axles, if it's still misaligned you have a problem.

I will verify how it looks when I take it in tomorrow.

Question, is it bad for it to stays in this position for any length of time?

I really don't have a lot of room to do much moving to get them straightened out

I am thinking maybe I put a jack under each side, lift it up and relieve the tension when storing for any length of time.

Thanks everyone for the responses. I really appreciate it!

Correct on the jack , put it on the frame right behind the rear wheel and it will pick up both wheels enough to relieve the stress. Do not put in under the axles.

It was a rainy few days at Algonquin Prov park...tarps kept us dry.
