Oh boy, found another problem to deal with
Why, oh why. Why do I have a warm spot in my heart for this trailer. Just when I get the black tank repaired and reinstalled(boy was that fun). So I was laying there on my back finishing installing the belly panel, getting the caulking gun ready to seal around the perimeter and took a look toward the new shiney Uniroyals I had just installed. I almost gasp in disbelief at what I saw. These tires came with raised white lettering that I had installed on the inside. I see a white circle running around the sidewall of the right front tire. What in the "h" is that???? Well upon investigation I learn. The shock absorber has been rubbing the sidewall. These new tires are the same size as the stock rubber, how could this happen? Taking measurements, the axles appear to be equally spaced from the frame, hardware intact. For some reason the tires are not spaced the sam, side to side. Nothing appears bent, broken. I will have to further investigate, winter project. For now I removed the shock, trimmed back the upper shock mount to give clearance for the tire. The shock was froze, piston stuck in bore. It also appeared the piston was bent maybe from a hard pothole hit. Tire not too bad, will continue running it, only has maybe 100 miles on the tread. If this keeps up, I can see a new Jayco in the driveway, soon.
