Find a trailer wheel alignment shop and have them align the wheels and that will correct the tire wear. Had the same problem and had wheels aligned and no more problem. The place where I took mine charged $150.00 per axel.

I would guess it is the axles out of alignment. I had some uneven ware on one my tires after a few thousand miles. I found a good alignment shop (that can do trucks so they have a rack they can put the trailer on) and for a couple of hundred dollars they bent the axles back into shape. No problem since.

Just had the 'Trackmaster' tires balanced and TPMS installed. I was told that there are a lot of 'bumps' on the tires and took lots of weight to balance them.

I would replace those tires now. Those bumps are an indicator that the tread is seperating

Little different problem with my 'Trackmaster' tires now. Had all 4 balanced..... now one of them is 'feathering' all across the tire after driving 500 miles. I would like to know how to cure the problem. This axle is 'toed-in' about 1/8 inch. Thks.....Al

I took my crossroads 5th wheel to a place that does truck axles and let them straighten them. I also found a axle equalizer broken and Crossroads or Lippert Axle will not warranty it. My Cruiser is a 2011

I had 2 equaflex equalizers crack on my 08 Cruiser. There is only a 90 day warranty on them. The top hub looked like it had only been tacked so I had a buddy weld them back up and installed never fail bushings in the hub. I just had to change all 4 springs due to crap built in China.

when I found the equalizer broken in Beaver, UT. the shop there had all the parts to go ahead and change the other one and while there I had them put on 4 new 5 leaf, leaf springs. That way I wouldn't have to worry anymore about the hangers. Now all I have to worry about is the bearings which with my luck and the poor ass quality of the lippert axles I would expect them to fail when I leave out again.

If you have some concerns about the bearings, maybe you should pull the brake drums, inspect and repack them. That would eliminate that concern.

I had the same problem with my trailer (not a Crossroads). Turns out the axles were bent from the manufacturer causing the tire wear. I took it to a trailer shop near me and they were able to straighten the axles for a couple hundred bucks. Only took a couple of hours to do it.
