Denali 5th wheel shocks

Hello everyone , I'm new to the group and have owned a 2008 model 31RG Denali for two years now.

Last winter my wife Sandy and I took it across country (Washington State to New Hampshire) and back over good and not so good roads. Only issue was excessive passenger side outside edge tire wear. Trailer springs seem to be doing fine with decent arch and rebound. Tires are E rated 16's, which I replaced when I stopped for a few months in Arizona (around 10,000 miles on the worn set). Have around 2000 miles on the new tires and they are also wearing more on the same outside edge. Curious if new shocks could help or if anyone has a suggestion or two. Thanks! Dean

P.S. I will post a RV picture if it stops raining here!

Shocks shouldn't have any effect on tire wear as they are thru to help control bounce. Maybe you have a set of bent axles or other component throwing axle alignment off?

Thanks, I will try to find vender to look at the axles and alignment before heading south in a few weeks.

Sounds like they are really off, since you notice the tires that quickly, Have the alignment checked, along with all the bolts, something is off, and you don't want anything else break

You might search a product called correct track. It is an axle alignment system that is easy to install not expensive around $200 and gives you the ability to align axles. There are companies like we have in Reno Nevada, Kroll built that will tweak axles and align it. They ask that you bring in trailer loaded like you use and then they go to work. I am thinking more about correct track myself
