Palazzo height riding level, is your height correct?

After reviewing several comments about mh height, I decided to see if my height is about the same as other Palazzo owners (yes ours is a 33.3, but should be close to other Palazzos)
On flat level surface;
All driving levels (from ground to lowest part of the wheel well plastic by tires) are at between 9.5 and 10 inches (see photo)
Note; driving height the bottom of the hitch is exactly 14 inches off the ground

And

Sitting on chassis (after air is totally out)
6.5 to 7.25 inches at all 4 wheel areas (see photo to better explain where i measured)

The reason for all this is that I thought the coach would sit a bit higher than this. .... is this normal?

This is with new tires (the ones that came with freightliner)

**special note; with airbags depleted the generator exhaust is only 5 inches off the ground! (That also seems low to me? )

I'm not an expert but that may not be very accurate.

I read U measure the chassis to the ground or as in this pic to the shocks lower bolt (between the red lines)



I suggest Call freightliner with your Vin # and ask what the ride hgt measurements should be.

And post them here.

also read that this should be done before an alinement.
