Default Trailer axel not running true

I have a single axel aluminum trailer & when I got back from our last trip, I noticed that one of my tires is almost completely bald & the other one is not too far from it. I measured the axel to a solid point in the rear & it is off about a 1/2-3/4" . Does anyone know if those axels go into slotted holes so I can loosen the bolts & get the axel straight?

Does it have independant torsion axle inserts or a full straight axle? My guess if its torsion, one of the assemblies is bent, causing the other to track out & wear.

I have taken mine into Mid Dakota twice to have it correctly. once from crested snow on the road back from the Black hills.

just this Jan I went over the tracks west of 26th. caused the hitch to come undone...

so I had a bent axle both times.. I think they charge like a 100.00 to correct it..

mine has the torsion axle I think yours does also....
