I have never seen this before.  This is a dealer problem.  Hopefully they will have a fix.  Nice to here the lug nuts where tight.

Our fenders are at different heights from the wheel on each side as well.  Slide out side is closer than the door side.

Thanks kymooses, that is good to know!  Does your tire appear slightly slanted like the torsion axle can't handle the weight of the slide out?

Same with our 177.  Got underneath and measured one day; the left side torsion is compressed maybe 1/4 to 3/8 inch more than the right, probably from kitchen weight. Right side fender is also mounted higher to clear the lower awning track, which exaggerates the difference.  My tires look square with both sides of the trailer, but not with the fenders, which both seem cockeyed when viewed from the front.

I can't say I've noticed that before but I'll be looking tomorrow and see what I see on ours!
