So the older units should have them replaced perhaps
My coach was built in January 2013, and I have the large rubber rollers supporting the slide as it moves. With the slide extended, look underneath the slide for the stainless steel plates - where they are, move the rubber sweep aside and look with a flashlight - you should see the matching rollers.

Are any Palazzo 36.1 owners full timing?

We are planning on starting in March. It would be good to get tips from others who have the same rig.

Thanks,

The best way to find out is to look yourself. I found that my 2014 33.2 has eight stainless steel plates on the bottom of the slide. That tells me that there are eight rollers. Inside I move the rubber seal and found eight rollers. The look substantial. The roller look like it is rubber and the bearing appear to be ball bearings.

We'll after talking to Jensen they said to take it in for service, made appointment and when I went out today just to check things( paper work) in the palazzo I turned the storage switch back on so I could see and the radio came back to life and is working like it should, not sure what to do guess wait to see if it acts up again or maybe I should not put the switch go storage since that is when it all started, I turned switch to storage and 4 days later went out to retrieve my GPS and to put some things back in it so I turned switch on and radio came on then went blank.

How many Palazzo owners are in the Salt Lake City area? This is a relatively small city and easy to get around. It could be helpful to actually visit and share fixes, improvements, and problems with our own eyes. It would certainly help those of us who are new at owning and using a motor home.

Since many topics of interest would be common to many types of DPs you should check into a local chapter of FMCA.

I agree with Jerry's recommendation to get connected with a FMCA area chapter for you area (rockymountianarea.com region#2). I belong to the Great Lakes Region and at our last rally we had 8 Palazzo's out of 480 Class A coaches at the rally. I also belong to an area chapter of FMCA, Tri-State Traveliers (Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky) and we have 4 Palazzo's in a club of 80 Class A coaches. If you check out the FMCA WEB site you will be able to find other local clubs in the Utah area. The Thor Diesel Club (FMCA International Chapter) has a bunch of Palazzo owners.

I will confess that the best source of information and exchange of ideas is this WEB site. If you got a question all you need to do is ask and someone will respond and try to help.

I was just reading some spec's on our motor 6.7 L 300/660 it say's our peak torque is @ 1600 rpm what speed would this be ?
I cruise @ 64 -65 mph @ around 1900 rpm
It seem's very low rpm's to me for our rig to cruise at but I would assume that's where the best MPG's would be if that's what you where after .

At Camp Freightliner we were told the sweet spot is 1800 rpm for best mpg. That's around 63 mph.

Palazzo toad ?

Just wondering if anyone has flat towed a f150 behind their palazzo? If so, how did it do.

We are currently pulling a wrangler unlimited behind our class c but I'm thinking if we move up to the diesel I would like to get my f150 setup as a toad. It weighs 5900.

Any thoughts?

Depending on the year of your 150 you won't be able to, I want to tow my 2007 150 and can't unless I put it on a trailer so we just stick with the jeep

We have a 13' f150 so I'm pretty sure we the truck can do it. I was just wondering how the Palazzo would handle it. Was curious what kind of Mpg you would get being about 11-1200lbs heavier than the wrangler unlimited rubicon we are currently towing.

We used to tow a 1998 F-150 behind both a previous Class A gasser and a 2002 Allegro Bus. It tracked very well and didn't give me any issues. It was a 2WD Lariat, and I made it 4 down capable by disconnecting the tail shaft at the differential and suspending it under the pickup bed - a nuisance when it was raining but very doable.
