Axle Alignment

Well, after one trip to Reno, one trip to Laughlin, and two trips to SLC, I managed to wear out the middle right tire. When I say wore out, I mean to the cords. Short story long, after a new set of Gladiator 14 plys, I took the 3805 to Alignment Specialist's in SLC. My nearest axle was out of alignment almost 2 inches, inches not degrees. They fixed right up, and the trailer pulls better than it ever has. Including the trip from Indiana to Elko, this thing only had 5000 miles tops. Anyhow, after two more trips to SLC, I can't see any wear yet. Hopefully they got it, and kudos to Alignment Specialist's at 2141 South, 1260 West, in Salt Lake. It's not for the faint of heart though, they use portapower tubing benders to align the axles. Quite a bit of popping and creaking. My alignment looked like this

Now my alignment looks like this

After wearing out tires on my new Surveyor, I took the trailer to Alignment Specialists as well. I recently traded the Surveyor in to purchase a new Voltage 3605. The first trip was back to SLC for an alignment. As anticipated, alignment was off. After alignment, my TH tracks better.
