I have a 2014 Palazzo 33.2 and, overall, my wife and I love it. Like most other people on this forum, we had small issues to take care of, but, nothing serious. Two things I have not been able to resolve and I wonder if any other people have had the same experience. The first regards the little doors of the diesel intakes Both sides are stuck in the open position and I cannot turn the little key one way or the other and I am afraid to force it. I wonder if anybody has made modifications to that door by putting in, for instance, a true lock and key. The second issue regards the TVs. In all campground in southern Utah we have been, they give us a list of channels which are all listed as cable channels. Obviously I cannot get those, but should not we be able to capture the local stations? When I do the scanning, all I get for found channels is a big zero. Do I do something wrong, or, do we need a dish or some other contraption to get cable channels? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mauro

Hope you have the BOMB set to cable and the TV set to scan.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the BOMB?
What I have tried is to put the instrument in the cabinet at cable and select cable in the TV and scanned. I also tried the other way around, putting the instrument in the cabinet at antenna, the TV on AIR and scan. I did not get any channels in either of the two ways.

If they gave you a list of cable channels that implies the campground has cable. Do you have a coax connected between a coax connection and the cable input in the utility bay? Are your switches set correctly ? If you do, are your campground neighbors receiving cable channels from the campground system? The only way to get cable channels is if the campground has a cable connection. In southern Utah there may not be any over the air TV stations within range. Again something to check with others in the campground. A raised TV antenna would be a good RV to check.

No. I do not have any cable connections and I do not know how I would set them up. This is a new MH and it is my first experience in a MH. Could you explain that in plain terms, please?

I have a 2013 33.3 and love it, only had some small minor issues but things are fixed and working fine. I haven't had any slide issues. We just turned 7000 miles we take it to the finger lakes in New York and down to the southern tip of Florida and to the mountains in pa, we use our coach all year long except from nov- February. That's a busy time for us so we have to be home.

You need to pick up a 25 foot coax cable and keep it around. When you are at a campsite, down in the utility area where the water connections exist, there is a receptacle to connect the cable connection to the campground feed. Once you have that, you set the TV for cable (not over air) and the coax selector (BOMB - Box Of Multiple Buttons) to cable. You will also need to set the TV to cable, as well, then scan. This should map out all of the channels.

We put on about 8000 miles this year on a number of short weekend trips, a jaunt to Canada and a little visit out to St. Louis. The coach has worked very well without any major problems. A couple of new screws, a rewire of the power to the front TV (common) and some other small items but nothing to really complain about. Mostly, all were cosmetic. We are very satisfied with our purchase and if offered a second chance, we would do it again.

We have a 2011 Jayco greyhawk that is loaded and mint that we are on the fence on whether to sell vs trade.

Wholesale price means a wholesale trade allowance. We had a similar scenario when we looked at trading out 2011 Itasca Impulse Silver 31JP with 11,000 miles. At that price range, assuming you have a similar 30 foot Class C, I would expect 45 to 50K on trade. You will probably get more selling, but, that can take quite some time. I would expect to pay about $100K with the trade for the Palazzo. If those numbers work, as they did for us, I would jump on the deal. The upgrade to a rear diesel from a Class C gasser is a world of difference. Quieter, better mileage, better ride, more room, more towing capacity, better handling and the list goes on.

The shower stall on my 36.1 was terrible. The faux tile (plastic) was not well attached to the wall. They attach it with double sided tape. It adhered to the wall paper covered front and side wall but not the rear, wood paneled wall. So not just the fixtures but the whole wall moved in and out over 1/2". I went overboard and pulled that wall away and replaced the 2 sided tape, cleaned the wood wall and reattached. If you remove the drawer under the wardrobe, you can see the back of the fixture attached only to the faux tile. I cut a piece of .090" aluminum with 2 slotted holes to drop down over the back of the fixture to hold it in place. It's a little more complicated than it sounds in that one sentence. The result was to hold the fixture from moving fore and aft. I'll try to get you a picture. BTW- Tom Overton expressed surprise over the lack of support for the fixture.

How about the rear wardrobe? Ours kept popping out with every bump and turn. The retaining clip is insufficient. Overton said there was no fix. Someone told me of holding shut with a clothes rod running side to side. I made a screw with a drawer pull knob, similar to the fridge retention screw to keep the wardrobe closed.

We really love the coach. We like the rear bath and the side entry door. Regretfully, there were a lot of nuisance issues that I had to fix. I'm holding my breath that the slide will continue to work.
Best regards,
