I just noticed that the inside half of the tread on the rear tire on the drivers side of my 5th wheel is almost smooth, the outside tread looks pretty good, and the other three tires look fine. What do you suppose would cause a tire to wear like that and no other tire be affected?

More so than alignment I'm thinking bent hub........look at tire/wheel directly from rear....is it leaning out at bottom (in at top) or is it cocked?

Leaning (top to bottom) somethings bent
Cocked......could be alignment

Take it to an alignment shop that will handle large trailers - usually over the road truck repair shops. With just 1 tire bad, it very well could be a bent spindle, or even a loose wheel bearing, but you won't know until its checked.

We had both tires do that on one axle. First thought it might be alignment but upon close inspection determined that the Mission brand tires were developing tread separation. Replacement tires have been on over 10,000 miles with no unusual tire wear issues or similar issues.
