Got to wax ours. What did you use?

I was using what I already had which was Turtle Wax Platinum (I think). I ran out and went to get more but I couldn't find it so I got regular Turtle Wax ( it was on sale). I don't like it as much because of the residue it leaves compared to the Platinum.

I just got mine and haven't needed to wax. When I do, I will use S100 - CARANUBA PASTE WAX. This is what I use on my Harley Sportster and cars. About $15 for a 7 oz. jar. Goes on easy. Doesn't give you that white haze. Works well on the plastic trim which can be difficult with other paste waxes to get rid of the white haze. I believe it is a blend of Carnauba & Bees waxes. Check it out on the Internet.

Thank you

take the path instead, 5 blocks walk in a fairly safe neighborhood. Dont need a toad for this site. The site keepers are helpful with directions.

Can you open your refrigerator door more than 90 degrees?

When mine was delivered the door would make contact with the cabinet under the TV but I was able to push the frig further in to its cabinet and now it does not make contact.

As for the frig shelves if you pull out the shelf a couple of inches you can tilt one side up and it can be removed without any difficulty. My DW had me remove all the shelves a couple of weeks ago to clean up a big spill.

I have a 2014 33.1 and the door won't swing more than 90 degrees.

Our frig hits the seat when the slide is in. It's okay when the slide is out.

Our door will open until it hits the frame on the shower wall. With side out of course.

Lightbulb Washing a Palazzo

I found Wash Wax All works well and is easy to use. No ladders or anything to get up high on the coach. If our coach is really dirty, like traveling in the winter and getting salt all over everything, then I'll rinse and lightly mop off first. Then I use Wash Wax All and get a good wash and wax at the same time. It's really nice at parks that will not let us use water to wash the coach. The only downside I've found is that the wax dries too fast in direct sun light and can streak especially on the dark paint of the Palazzo. The work around is to wash and wax the sides as they become shaded. It also works well on our toad - I seldom need to visit a car wash. The real secret is to wash and wax often and not wait until things get really dirty if possible. I find once a month while parked works well.

I have some more information from Emerson - the manufacturer of the Thermodisc in the inverter cabinet.
The printing on the side of my Thermodisc is
36T22 561887 F40-15C S1217.
36T22 is the form factor (meaning it's a surface mount OFF/ON switch,
normally OPEN (i.e. switch is normally OFF),
and will CLOSE (i.e. switch ON) when the temp rises;
561887 is Emerson's part number;

F40-15C specifies it's a fan controller (i.e. F),
the 40-15C is the circuit CLOSE temp and temperature differential spec.
When the temp rises up to or over 40 celcius (or 104 fahrenheit) the circuit will CLOSE which allows the fan to run.
When the temp drops down to or below 25 celcius (i.e. 40 minus the 15c differential) (or 77 fahrenheit) the switch will OPEN thereby cutting off power to the fan.

S1217 is Emerson's location code for place of manufacture. S1217 = made in China.

That temp range should be OK but for some reason (as I had previously posted) the fan ran all night even though the temp fell well below 60. I finally had to disconnect the Termodisc to stop the fan from running.

I was sent a replacement Thermodisc with the same specs but a different manufacture location code. I'll give it a try and report back.
Maybe my original disc was bad.

I have received a replacement disc thermostat from Thor with the same results as the original. A call to Thor parts lead to an investigation and Thor came back that they know of no better disc thermostat. I searched and even ordered one but no improvement. I have decided that tapping the inverter fan voltage to trigger a relay to turn the compartment fan on is the way to go. I have the relay but have not made the mod yet.

I just got back from using my palazzo and noticed that I do not have a fan in my inverter bay, but so far have had no issues with over heating like others have said, not sure if I should call Thor or not about my missing fan, and also want to say hi to the palazzo I passed on Sunday on I-81 north of Harrisburg pa I was going south and they were towing a dark green Honda SUV behind them
