I'm trying to use the randomSurvivalForest package in R to predict the next event in a series of events (using res <- predict(fit,v)), but all I get is a total % survivors and then the cumulative hazard for each individual in the res$ensemble. Can I use this to predict/generate values matching what's in in res$time?

As you descibe it with:

next event in a series of events

It seems like you will definately want to look into time series analysis, perhaps an arima class model can provide you with some good results.
