I do not. Maybe I don't know what I'm missing.
Or maybe I have low expectations.
I won't say it is as easy driving as my Lexus RX400h, but it is far more comfortable than Army trucks I have driven.

I had a drip in that big radiator hose, got under and tightened the clamp. No leak. Lucky I noticed it before a long trip.

Secret panel

Palazzo 33.2 owners have asked about black plastic in curb side water bay. I took black plastic panel to Ace Hardware and they cut a piece of clear plexiglass same size. Now I can see water level and still protect tank and wires. Peter

Safe-T-Plus. And again I think they are just as good as the next one. I just would not of liked the feel of any of them probably.

I have a Safe T Plus on my Challenger and I really like it. It damps out the small wheel movements, and makes passing trucks a non event. I have the optional Trim Unit and would highly recommend it. In a constant crosswind, with the steering wheel turned into the wind, a press of the button re-centers the Safe T Plus and takes all the effort out of holding the wheel. I had a Blue Ox Trucenter on my previous coach and felt it was not as effective as the Safe T Plus.

I just took the black one off and didn't put anything back. Another gentleman cut slots in his vertically to see the level.

I have read where some are complaining that the resale value is taking a hit because of the slide problems but some of these same people are the most vocal about their slide problems. These owners repeat the same story over and over again like it will make everything better if they scream loud and often enough. What they are doing is causing the very problem with resale value that they are complaining about. Are these people acting out of frustration, I am sure they are but their actions are a two edge sword and we all will reap what these few unhappy people sow. I have been on these iRV2 Palazzo threads from the beginning of most and I enjoy sharing ideas, experiences and helping one another. Recently I have been less interested and I have seriously considered unsubscribing from many of these threads because I do not get anything out of hearing the same people complain about the same problem over and over again. There is absolutely nothing anyone on this WEB site can do to fix their problems as much as some of us wish we could. Just my thoughts on the subject… Jack
X-2, Mr Arnold. I, too, have thought about discontinuing my subscription. Same people, same complaints. Really tired of those posts.

I wonder if it would help any to make different threads for different subjects rather than having one super long running thread which is all but impossible to moderate for being off topic when the thread goes off in all directions?

When I first started this thread it was my intention to have a thread that showed who owned a Palazzo. I guess that I should have named it "List of Owners of Palazzos" or something like that. Could you move my list to a new thread?

Thanks,
Gary

John,

I agree, this thread had wondered all over the place and it would appear that this is not what Gary initially intended and I am sure that no one would read from the beginning. I do have a question about how long a particular thread can be? I know that some threads have ran over 5000 posts and one subject I remember about Wal-Mart was closed for some reason, maybe it got too long?

Thanks!
Jack

I agree with you John that it is all directions. But I for one read the whole thread and think it to be OK to have everything Palazzo in a couple of large threads??

I'm not sure how you moderators have to handle it. But the above my thoughts.

Thanks. Russell

The Palazzo section has helped me greatly in learning my rig, but I agree with Palazzo categories being better management of the content.

I also have read the post from page one until now and have found it to be very valuable. It does get frustrating hearing the same complaint over and over, but I also understand the problem and I am glad I am not in those shoes. Maybe we should start a thread "Satisfied Palazzo Owners - minor complaints with solutions accepted"
