Sorry about the additional issue. Hope your trip to Elkhart will fix all.
We are at the cg in Stafford. Our neighbor is a guy named Lew. Says he spent time with you and Dot in FL.
Small world.

Cool Tire Pressure Gauges

What type of tire pressure gauges do you use?

I'm having trouble finding a gauge that I can trust. I've used the digital gauge from Minder Tech for trucks and RV's and found it does not work well in cold temps. It tends to not turn on when cold so I have to keep it inside my coat to keep it warm and then quickly try to get a reading. I've tried a stick type that I bought at a Pilot truck stop. It reads just fine but I get very different reading then from the Minder digital even in warm weather. And different yet is the readings from the Tire Traker TPMS. So in other words, I have three different tire pressure gauges all of which give different readings and I'm not sure which one to trust the most. The difference is as much as 15-20 lbs.

This is like the one that I have. It hooks directly to the air line or you can just use it as a tire pressure guage. It states that it is accurate within 1%.

If you are a new Palazzo owner you get your first year of membership to the TDC free so there should be no downside to joining.
If you are interested please visit their WEB site and consider joining; www.thordieselclub.org
Well folks we arrived at the Thor Diesel Club Rally about 2 hours ago at Wanderlust RV Park, Eureka Springs, AR. It was an nice and uneventful trip from Ohio (680 mi). About half of the coaches have arrived with the balance coming in later on today and tomorrow.

Picked the new 33.2 up in March, took it to Myrtle for the first week of April. Thanks to all for the info it helped us make the decision and also get through some of the initial small issues. Overall it was a great trip, had a small water leak where the hoses run under/behind the drawers in the kitchen. Pulled a couple of drawers out and tightened the connection and the leak was no more. Couple of other issues but nothing major and overall happy with the quality and the rig. It is in Safford getting some minor warenty work done before the next trip. Hooked up an Airforce One for the braking system on the toad works great. More later when I have some time, I just need to read back through some of the posts as I found out the answers to a few of the questions that were brought up before.

Thanks again for all of the info everyone has shared.

James

Aquia Pines CG

Was at the Aquia Pines CG outside Stafford VA this past week. Saw a Palazzo at the cg but no one home for 3 days.
Up on jacks but not hooked up.
Sorry we missed you, whoever you are.

I am in a Palazzo sandwich at Wunderlust RV Park Eureka Springs, AR. I have a 33.2 on my left and a 33.1 on my right. There is another 33.1 further up the line. All 4 of us are enjoying discussing our coaches.

Should be complete for Friday and some pics to follow.

Some of the 2014 items that changed that I have noticed:

- the windows, including the front sides, are seamless
- front seats are dual tone
- the sound bar is a newer rev

Have not had a full walk through yet. Just a quick peek when it arrived on the delivery lot.
Could you explain and send a picture of a seamless window? Does that mean they don't open?

Is there an advantage to a dual tone seat? It would be nice if the front seat material were tougher.

Jack,

Have you talked to the other Palazzo owners next to you about joining iRV2? Or are they already members?
