New member, first post, a word salad of grammatical errors and the question is - if 2 flat tires will cause a FW to lean??? If this isn't a troll post I don't know what is.

Very common with newer 5th wheels. Most economical and effective solution is to let the air out of the two tires on the other side of the trailer. Lots of YouTube videos on this subject.


Best answer!

If the tires are flat side down, yes.

Just put the flat side on top and it will look fine.

Just attach helium balloons to that side of the trailer and problem is solved.

Go let the air out of both tires on one side of your tow truck and see if it balances out![emoticon]
