Bent rear axel, One season, 2014 Zinger..?
We bought a new Zinger (30 ft.) last April. We also bought the extended warrantee.
I have noticed the rear tires were not following true compared to the front tires, especially when backing up. Dealer told me to take it to a local trailer allignment company. while walking out to check it out, the mechanic said it had a bent rear axel, and did I hit some "pot holes" or have to crank hard into some camp sites.? The tire wear on the inside is definately different than the front tires... but not bad enough to change rubber yet.
Pot holes = No Crank into tight camp sites = yes.
Now the dealer and Rt. 66 extended warrantee are not covering the $1000. 00 repair bill. The dealer warrantee expired in April, the Rt. 66 says in the fine print that they do not cover bent axel's.
I'm kinda concerned about this entire issue.
BTW... I towed a 30 foot travel trailer for over 20 years...the last 10 years with the same H2 Hummer. (1995 Nomad, still in great shape.!) We gave it to my son when we bought this Crossroads.
Any ideas on how I prevent this from happening again.? Some say carry some sand to spread when backing into a camp site.... Really.?
