I am surprised there is no outside vent for the stove hood. I thought all motorhomes had this vent. My Bounder is a basic unit but has an outside flap that opens when the fan is on. I have shopped Palazzos (Thor units) but never looked for a vent...no reason not to have one other than cost....

Does anyone know if the plastic jack pads can handle a 36.1?
Lippert Ultra Level Hydraulic Jacks has the PDF file online - we printed it to keep in the coach. It should answer your questions. Just "google" Lippert Ultra Level and you can read the instructions on the use of the leveling system in the Palazzo.

I have a question about the front over head bunk. the bunk goes down fast and smooth, but when you raise it up in travel/store position, it moves very slow up and most times it show's low battery on the power panel where the key is. need some input.

Month in the shop for a slide repair? I would get Thor customer service involved. I observed Thor completely remove and reinstall a slide in less than two days at their facility in Elkhart. It would appear that the shop you are using is not all that knowledgable if thay have had it for a month!

It wasn't until last week they said Thor agreed to put in "new slide components" now supposedly waiting on parts. I am so fed up with this coach I don't even want to talk to Thor!! I don't like thier "you are bothering us" attitude!! UGGGG!!!! Total Buyers REMORSE!!

Mu hurricane was in the shop for a month getting the slide fixed, and that was with Thor agreeing to expedite shipping on whatever parts were needed. You're not the only one with buyers remorse. We have an Allegro on order and will be trading this piece of junk in on it.

My wife and I love the layout of this coach, however one of the things that has us scratching our head is spending $150k and having to resort to air mattresses! Minor issue I know but still. Just seems like they could have thought that out a bit more and supplied some sort of thin mattress instead.
Like I said, no issues at all. Even when we raise it into position, there does not appear to be any "stress" on the motor at all. Pins slide in easy and then I'll drop it just a touch to keep things snug. We did check how much room was available when raised before putting the memory foam up there.

Hope you have been reading the tiffin blogs. I hear you can wait over a month at tiffin. Never had that problem with Thor. We have had two Thor products. We travel from Texas to Thor and they take care of all issues. Do not rely on CW or any dealer. They will sand bag you and blame it on Thor.

We love our coach!!!

I've never had the wheels off the ground while on jacks. Always dump the air bags before leveling.
Never had a problem even with un-level ground.
I do put wood blocks under the jack pads if on dirt or gravel.

Are you letting air out of suspension before lowering jacks? I seldom have a problem but if site is off level I have used the plastic leveling blocks.

And air up the suspension before retracting the jacks otherwise you will get all kinds of moans and groans from the retracting jacks.

We've not had a problem with this. We replaced the ceiling vent with a Fantastic Fan and turn it on high when we're cooking so everything gets sucked outside. Works well to keep moisture down and remove most cooking odors. It's remote controlled and the fan speed can be set either by temperature or manually. We also had Maxx-Air cover installed so we can use the fan regardless of the weather.

Sounds like a good plan!! My brother-in-law has a 1999 Allegro and loves it!!!
We are still trying to decide what to do...........
