Reading the other posts I think I'll let some air out of my tires.

It kind of wanders some and I was thinking of a Safety Steer or something. But now that I think of it I have the 110 or so it came with.

I'll try 95 front and 100 rear for the next trip (if they ever get the big slide fixed) and see if that helps.

Thanks for the idea.

Well, we love the DP, had a Class C before, would not go back. I think the Palazzo offers good value but there have been a number of annoying small issues to deal with. From reading this Forum, others have had the issues also.
I look forward to corresponding with everyone and sharing issues and solutions.

One issue that seems unlikely to be resolved is that on this site, under "Manufacturers, Thor". There are at least four Palazzo threads. How do you keep up with them?
Happy to be on board,
Jim Grove
Hi and Welcome! We all have our Palazzo "issues" but luckily, with the IRV2 site, we are not alone! It is all part of having a "giant rolling home"!!

100 front & 105 rear, but I have been coming down from the 120 the dealer had all around. It has made a world of difference. From forum information, I lower and monitor tire wear etc.

Oh happy day! Our Palazzo finally arrived today and we are planning to take delivery on Friday after they switch out the range to one with an oven.

I took a preliminary walk around the unit and noticed a few things that are different from what I've seen online. I noticed the water filter is missing in the wet bay. After a call to Thor, they confirmed that it was most likely not installed. I did find a filter and a white plastic wrench inside the black Thor manual bag. I checked under the sink, too. Nothing there either.

I was surprised to see how flimsy the fuel access door was. It is way too flimsy in my opinion. I can see the plastic lever opening and the door flapping in the breeze after a bumpy ride. On our 2014 Hurricane, the door is made of metal and closes much more securely.

The darker interior is not my favorite. Thor now offers only one furniture color (couch and dinette), in a slightly darker taupe. For some, this is ideal. I prefer a lighter interior, especially with the darker cabinets. The driver and passenger chairs have been shortened as to not interfere with the overhead bunk (in our Hurricane, you had to fold the seats forward and hold them down while lowering the bunk). I don't really love the dark brown center stripe they've now made standard decor for the front seats, but if I want a Palazzo, I've got to live with it as there are no other options.

I looked at the inverter bay and took some photos. I noticed the fan in the compartment was on. The coach wasn't running, but I had no idea if the inverter was on or not. I didn't want to mess with anything yet since I won't technically own it until Friday. I will certainly be more thorough then.

My list of questions just keeps getting longer. At least I know what the 'wet' and 'inverter' bays are, thanks you all you folks!

Would definitely push for the in-line filter. No idea why that missing.
I've had no issues with the fuel door.
The inverter fan in my opinion should not be running at all times. Mine does also.

The fan for the inverter runs all the time because the thermostat works that way. It closes and turns the fan on at about 100 degrees but doesn't cut off again until the temp reaches about 80 degrees. I unplugged my fan and will come up with a better thermostat. Are you looking for the inline filter in the right place. It is next to the water pump.

The inverter vent fan was installed during our factory visit. Was told it should come on turn off by temperature. Forget what temp. Ours never turns off if there's any kind of power applied. You saying that's correct?

That's what I want to know, too. I took photos of the things in the bays but I don't know what all I'm looking at.

On mine the water pump is located next to the water tank. In order for me to see the pump I had to remove a large black panel that hides the water tank. I left this panel off so I can view the water level in the tank v/s depending on the water level indicator.
