I can't believe what I found! I went to re-grease my bearings and while jacking up the trailer the wheel well looked closer to the tire than it ever has (always was closer on the slide side).

Under I go!

The frame is bent upwards!


What the heck folks! Anyone else have this issue!

This is a 2017.5 182G picked up 4/2018.. No major potholes to speak off on the Highways of North America. Besides, you would think the Castle Rock tire would have blown before the frame bent from such stress.

Anyone else have this issue?

I found the spot. The Frame is buckled and cracked at the axle mount.

I have to admit, you are the first I have heard.
