Leaf spring problem

I own a 2017 Sonic Lite 167 travel trailer from Venture. I have broken 3 leaf springs in less than three years. Itís always the leaf spring on the passenger side of the trailer and itís never been loaded past itís limit.
Has anyone else had this experience and can anyone offer some advice to help solve this issue? I repaired it myself the first time and had it repaired professionally the second time. I plan to repair it myself this time. Each time it was repaired both springs were replaced.

Have the alignment checked. A Big truck place that services the cargo trailers can do this. I had to do it on my last unit. Check the axel its self make sure it is not bent.
