I run 95# front 90# rear. When I got mine it had 110 in some 115 in others and was wandering all over. I started lowering and it handles very good now. I've never weighed it but don't feel i need too as I know it is very light for these 22.5 tires. At one point I installed a front stabilizing shock. Didn't like that and now it is on my barn shelf.

Did you know you can slide out the bottom of the sofa for more storage. We
use it to store the pillows,blankets and sheets

So we drove a total of 466 miles on our trip and just refilled tank. At 54 gallons. So thats 8.6 mpg. Its hard to judge correct mpg becuase we stoped a few times with gen running and also at rv park once i was done loading car on dolly we sat with gen running about one hour. We also run gen and dash ac while driving at 62 mph

You can use the LBCU to check MPG that is not affected by generator run time.

Question Tire pressure

Any other owners care to state what tire pressure you set?

We run 90 psi in the front and 100 psi in the rear. These pressures were set based on my 4 corner weight plus a 5 psi increase to allow me to add weight without worrying about re-adjusting my tire pressure.

Good information, but putting your Palazzo year and model would add a lot. Just adding the information to a signature is the easiest way to do this.

Agreed but unfortunately signature does not show when reading on iPad app so when it is significant including in message is best.

I fixed that oversight. I did not think the model number would matter when I changed my signature and of course I don't look at my own signature. It is 33.2. I am in the process of determining the right pressure. I changed the maximum pressure of 110 psi from the dealer to 95 psi on all tires and have taken one short trip. I am a little unsure about the best pressure for the duals. I like to put 5 psi more than the pressure determined by the weight. It leaves a margin for some loss of pressure and the addition of more weight.

Ok Jim. I have a 2013 Palazzo 33.2. I believe that's under my name. But I usually don't add that to my post. Sounds like I'm right on Arnold's #bers if he added 5 pound to his after it being weighed. He could be a little lighter. I think his is a 33.1. I carry very little extra things around. If I don't use it I don't carry it. Just some extra tools

I have a 2013 Palazzo 33.2 that now has 19,958 miles on it. Purchased it Oct 2012. Have I had problems ? Yep. Got that T-shirt too.

My biggest problem was with the large slide. I was always able to get it open & closed. Never totally quit on me. Took it to Thor. They fixed that along with a few small issues last March. I have had any issues since then & for sure we use the coach.

Every other year I purchase a new farm tractor. The tractors I run cost aprox $250,000. I dread each time I get a new one. For the first several days (weeks ha) I have to have the service techs there fixing many items. I don't think warrantee issues are only at Thor. They are in all lines of society. Sad but true.

My last MH was a Thor also and I don't think I had any warrantee issues with it. Thor for sure has been having these slide issues for long enough hopefully they have addressed this on the build line?

So if I were buying again today. It would be for sure another Palazzo. Have to be the 33.2 or 36.1 because we love our washer & dryer
