Nice place and lots of seminars that one can attend. If you plan on taking the RV driver's confidence course you need to make reservations well in advance for the driving portion. The classroom portion that we attended was well worth attending and it is free.

Tomorrow we head for Jacksonville, FL on our way back home.
We envy you! We have here in Ohio trying to keep the snow off the driveway and caring for a sick wife, flu season is in full swing. We hope to head south in a few weeks.

Did the repair guy give you any reason for the blowout?
How did the Palazzo handle in that situation?
The repair guy could find no reason for the blow out. The Palazzo handled well. Just kept foot on gas and slowed down slowly.

The only company allowed at Hilton Head Motorcoach Resort is Baldeagle Detailing. They are not cheap but do a very good job. They charged $125. Mr. Baldeagle inspected our washing three times to make sure things were done right.

In the Keys they are getting about $10/ft to wash and wax.

I got my Palazzo in October but just now got my Freightliner 24/7 USB card. I have not been through everything on it yet to see if there is anything I don't already have but the video is nice. The maintenance log might be interesting. It also has 1 GB of memory so more can be put on it.

It would be interesting if anyone who has had it for awhile could point out particularly worthwhile features.

It took a few tries before I got it to work and have not yet been able to get it to work on my Macintosh, just the XP PC.

I don't have that card. I thought that I was supposed to get one but forgot about it.

Got my 24/7 Freightliner USB card some time ago and I have looked through it but not in extreme detail. I think it is a handy reference file. If you have not received yours I would call Freightliner.

add me to your list... 33.3. Im excited about this purchase and will keep you guys updated on the delivery status... hoping to get it delivered in 6-8 weeks. Just in time to dodge winterizing it... I hope.

looking forward to do some mods on it already... first order will be solar battery charging.

I am not very familiar with how to best use Facebook but since one of the pieces of information on the 24/7 USB card was about the RV Road Trippers page on Facebook I am passing it along for those who use Facebook. Let us know if it proves worthwhile.

This morning I got the card to work on my Mac and transferred everything on the card into my Palazzo folder so if something happens with the card I will still have the information. Working in IT has given me a great belief in having backups.

Congrats redridge on you palazzo, I too own the 33.3 and love it I have pics of it just do a search under my name. Haven't really changed anything in mine except took the bunk mattresses out and use the bunks for a bar/ more storage and I use the bunk mattresses for the overhead bed in the front since the air mattress leaks and the bed closed in travel position with the foam ones so all is good, also put a curtain up front to give the guests privacy from the rest of the coach but so far love it will be heading to Sebring Florida in a couple of weeks to go see the races have several stops on the way down and back including Helton head island rv resort. Well hope you enjoy your unit as much as we have been enjoying ours,
Jim
