I need some help and advice. The tire tread is completely worn on the inside portion of the left rear of my dual axled cruiser. All other tires are fine. Pressure has always been checked & kept at max. From what I have read, it could be a misaligned axle. Questions: Any other possible causes? Anything for an alignment novice to look for? What is done to fix the probable problem? Any ideas of costs?
Misaligned spindle on the axle is the most probable reason. Occasionally the spring hangers have been welded on improperly. Measure from front to each hanger and then measure from each front corner to the opposite hanger, in an X pattern. Measurement should be within about 1/4".
Alignment shop is your best bet.

What year is it? If it is within warranty a replacement axle is about a 3 hour job for your dealer and it will cost you nothing. The dealer needs to contact Lippert who will have them measure the axles, if out Lippert will take care of it.
Mine had the axle replaced when under a year old - my dealer was on the ball and the replacement occured within a week of it's discovery.

I had the same issue and finally replaced all tires with Maxxis 10 ply in November 09. My right rear was worn all on the inside and the other 3 tires were fine. I was told a possible reason was a bad tire or too tight of turns on pavement. In any case, the year prior to buying new tires I swapped the bad tire to the front right position and it still wore badly. I won't know till next summer if this was the right approach.
I had a problem with a tire on my first long trip. I did replace the tire and pulled the camper home (over a thousand miles). since all the other tires were showing wear on the insides I did go out to good alignment shop and they made some adjustments. They also repacked the bearings for just under 300 bucks. Got new tires and pulled from California to Florida and back and the tires still look new. My camper was just out of the 2 year warranty.
