Did it go out after 15 seconds. Mine will start out low then jump up to 13 or so volts. I think you have to let it go to higher bolts before you can run the jacks

I went to the Hershey rv show this evening( wendsday) looked at the new palazzos and just don't like the seats in the front and the fabrics they are using but am waiting to hear if I can get my windows switched out to the frameless ones. Also looked at some extras I may be purchasing for my coach. On the way out I saw a palazzo in the parking lot was going to wait for the owner to say high but needed to get home, in the middle or a remodel and the countertop guys were a hour early. But came to the conclusion that all the other units out there just really do not compet with the palazzo.

What kind of extras? I bought a TPMS today but didn't find much of anything else I was looking for.

Was looking at satellites, a better breaking system for the toad, and just things I might need/ use, but did not get anything, I find better deals on stuff on the Internet so I will keep looking. Also want to get aluminum wheels for my 33.3 and get rid of the simulators, I don't like them.

Gingerela,


Can you give me that contact persons name. I have a Black Canyon coming off the line in about two to three weeks. I want that awning fixed.

It is normal. You can run high idle to shorten time.

My 33.2 stays at "low voltage" for exactly 30 seconds upon starting the engine, then the alternator "comes alive" and all is well from that point forward, registering over 13 volts. I haven't pursued this with Freightliner, but will if this behavior changes. Please keep us all posted with your experience.

Thanks,
Norb

Thanks Gingerela! I am going to contact my sales rep that happens to be in Elkhart, In and make sure he understands I am not taking delivery of my coach with a blue grey awning on it.

I would have done the same had I known beforehand. Oversights such as this really bother me. This is a biggie. How is it that no one caught this?

I guess their 200 point inspection was under UV lights in the factory and not in sunlight where it becomes apparent?

LOL!
They probably do their inspection the same way I did mine:
Awning: Goes out - yup
Awning: Comes in - yup
Next ..

As for color. I'm not sure. It might be tan. I'm pretty sure it is not black. When it is out all the way I don't see the top. Now that my curiosity has been raised someday I will check the color. I think there is a color variation on the inner part.

Speaking of color - I think it is really amusing that Thor recognized the sale value of the Cinnamon Shore by putting a Palazzo in that color on their primary website, but now that color is not even available on 2014 models!

Looks like Gingerla should have the website design job too!

Of course I am not prejudiced in any way about the Cinnamon Shore color scheme and believe diversity makes us stronger.

Gingerela writes: The Fleetwood sales folks speak very poorly of the Palazzo in an attempt to promote their Excursions. I couldn't help but notice the extremely dark colored interiors of all the Excursions on the lot. Each and every one had a black interior, from the furniture to the walls. Not sure what that's all about, but it was not at all attractive. The finish wasn't all that either. I wasn't impressed, but then again, maybe there is something beneath the build that I'm not aware of that makes it all that and a bag of chips. What do I know.

A nice write up on your Hershey RV show trip. I have seen two 2014 Fleetwood Excursions...a 33D and a 35B. Both had the black interior but there are three interior color options on the Fleetwood web site. I liked the black but the wife did not...the 35B is on the longer wheel base, 242" I think. As said before, we really liked the Palazzo 33.1 and was surprised when it was discontinued...while there is just the wife and I, with the optional overhead bed, it could sleep a number of folks...the slide problems bug me...as mentioned, it seems the 33.1 has fewer problems than the models with longer slides. I also was surprised when it took Thor a long time to change out the hardware to possibly cure the problem. I know all RVs have their problems....again, a good write up.
