Picked up the Retro 193 That the Dealer delivered about half way to our home Towed fine!
Today packed up on our first practice trip, we moved  out of our house while they repair structure issues on the roof. Drove about 10 miles to out temp location and while crossing a bridge with bumpy conditions loud noise coming from the RV Sounds like Suspension, Axel?? When backing into the spot with a spotter it happened again?
He seems to think it was coming from the Axel??
No Place to take it Where we live,Any Suggestions??
Thanks Gilberto

jack it up  and make sure it is safe to get under it. Then maybe try to rock wheel back and forth. If no issues check for thighness of suspension bolts. Is it a grinding or clunking noise. good luck. GBA!!SVJ

just a thought one post awhile ago the had the wrong size hitch ball . Ball was too small by 1/8"  that would make clunking sound. GBA!!SVJ

Correct Size Ball 
Do not have Weight Distribution System,Still trying to get the correct Ball height to Trailer coupler height figured out 
Thanks 
It May be the hitch Anderson Adjustable Drop position on the top setting may have to try going back down one setting seem to not have the clunk on that

Check for play(looseness) between the receiver and draw bar(hitch). I had a similar sound with a boat trailer and that is what it was.

Gilberto, the correct drop position is when the trailer is level after being locked down to the TV.
Check for things that don't make sense. The other day I was towing and heard a really strange banging noise. It was the bathroom window that I had left open. Strange stuff happens. One would think that an axcel issue would have been noticed by the delivery driver.
Let us know what it turns out to be.
