Down loaded the directions. Does not seem to be to difficult just time consuming.
A local dealer told me they have done it before with no issues. Going to see if I can get more detail from them.
One question I have is were the power comes from for the unit. No mention of a power supply. Might come through the coax cable.
Also don't know how the JACK will effect the BUMB.
Will continue to research.
Thanks for the link.

What is the advantage of the JACK?

I'm told it has better reception.
A friend has a new Winny with the Jack system. They can pick up double the channels vs my crank up.

We are not full timers but we spend a lot of time in our RV, we switched from a Tuscany to the Palazzo 33.2 and lost kitchen space so we just made some adjustments. We pulled out the shelves in the pantry and my husband installed drawers which are much more efficient to use. We just spent a week in Myrtle Beach and are on the road right now heading for the Great Smokie Mountains for another week or two. I love this RV even with the smaller kitchen. I found some 12x12 cloth boxes and they work great in the cabinets, I can fit 8 of these boxes in the 2 cabinets above the couch and you can label them and toss all kinds of stuff in them and they keep everything organized and in place when driving down the road. They are tan cloth and look like they came with the RV, a perfect match and I got them for $1 each at the Christmas Tree Store if you have one near you. Let me know how it works out for you.

Thanks for the great ideas. We still don't have our down payment together but today my daughter and I went over to the dealers warehouse and since it was so empty there, we went into the 33.2 and just hung out in it for quite a while. It was really fun, and felt a bit sneaky, but it was very affirming and confidence building that that's the one we want. I thought of putting basket slide outs in the pantry while I was visiting my future home :-)

Air bags

Was told at Camp Freightliner that we have valves that you can opened to dump water from the air bag system.
Was told the handles are up by the front wheels.
Anyone been able to locate said handles?

Post New owner reporting in!

Wanted to upgrade from my 2002 Safari Trek 27' and found that I could get into a DP Freightliner for under $140k with a great floorplan. Put my deposit down last week however we still have snow here so I will not pick it up in Elkhart until around mothers day. Another major factor in my decision was the under 12' profile (I have a 12' door on my hanger).

Believe it or not I may be the first owner who put his money down before seeing one! I expect to see my first one around mothers day, mine! Obviously I was smitten with the spec's and looks. Quick question, we carry 2 zero gravity chairs in my Safari- how tall is the pass-through gap in the storage area above and below the chassis rail? Not sure my chairs are thin enough to get through.

Also, if anyone knows somebody looking for a really high quality smaller class A gas, my Safari Trek is in the classified section of this site, only $23,000! Looking forward to meeting new friends in the Thor and Palazzo family.

How do I turn my profile on? Russ 33.2

Welcome Russ!
Looks to me like your profile is on.
There is a sliding tray for small items above the rail so not really a significant gap. Below the rail there is space for some plastic storage bins to fit perfectly. Maybe 15 inches.

My hangar also has a 12' door but the plane takes up too much room so the Palazzo has to live outside. Maybe someday I will put an extension on it to keep it under cover. On the other hand, I would prefer to be traveling with it so it would be outside all the time anyway.

Best wishes and be sure to do a very thorough PDI.

We made the big step this past weekend and are now proud owners of our first DP. Ended up getting the 33.1, liked the 33.2 but had reservations about that long slide with all those utilities. Trying to get ready for shakedown trip starting this weekend. Will be going to Moab, Ut for 8 days starting Saturday. Wish us luck...

They are wire rope cables that stick through the frame so you can grab them and give them a pull.

On more recent Palazzos a bracket has been added the puts the connector up at the same level as the hitch and a little further back. The pieces to do this have a total suggested retail price of <$25. They are available from Etrailer.com or a local Tow-ready dealer.

Here are the Tow-ready part numbers:
118136
118137

If you have any hitch questions I got excellent service from Jackie at 800-632-3290.
We just relocated the plug in to above the hitch. Had to get a set of training wheels to get in our drive.
Luv our coach
