Thats what I do also. Then I am on campground power while we level and put out slides. Have yet to find bad power on a pedestal. Also if hot out, it gets the AC cranking during setup.

Had 2 bad neutrals on pedestals since getting the P.I. Once in newer park, once in older one. It saved me.

Coach manufactures vary on the sequence of the extension of slides.

The Palazzo should to be level and plugged into shore power (or have the generator on) before slide activation. The slide should be fully extended and/or fully retracted. It is NOT advised to move the slide just a small amount (in either direction-- in or out). The slide is be completely and fully retracted or extended.

We owned an HR Vacationer 30 SFS (full wall slide) and Monaco/HR recommended a different sequence for the slide activation. Thor Palazzo units are to be leveled and then the slides activated.

As is often the case, what works for some RVs does not work for all RVs.
My coach has a factory installed water pressure regulator built into the water entry.
If I use another regulator when I hook up to the spigot, the volumn, (aka: amount of water flowing), from the faucets and shower, is unsatisfactory.

I really don't care which way you level - slide in or out. However we have been on sites that were out of level left to right pretty badly. Now, think about this, those with non-hydraulic slides. If the coach is out of level, the electric motor pulling those slides out has to work harder pushing the slide up the hill to extend it. I for one don't want to replace those things as it is a pain and the harder they work, the more likely they are to fail. I will level first then extend the slides. It is easier to push something on a level surface than uphill.

Unfortunately the Thor manual is not very explicit except to say slides should be extended and retracted with the coach as level as possible. Guess I will ask the tech when we stay overnight up in Alvarado.
Welcome to the palazzo family!! We have had ours 4 months and love it. If you haven't already, check in on the thor owners forum. Lots of good info and people on there too.
