It is undersized? Did he offer a solution to the problem?

Just a quick note. The valve extensions on the inside rear tires can be susceptible to leakage. We checked pressures prior to a short trip but when we returned, both inside tires were completely airless and riding on the rims. A visit to the tire shop indicated no issues with the tires themselves, but, when they aired them up, the cords were damaged (due to heat). So, we needed a couple of new tires (they are $600 each).

sorry to hear that heavy... glad that you are OK, it could have been worse. I got rid of those extension, they are bad news in my book. I was never a fan of TPMS but these things we drive are beasts and can create serious damage if our tires go... I now rely on TPMS on our toad as well.

Yes, I picked up a TPMS to track all 6 tires pressures. Also, getting some aluminum wheels, as well to retire the steelies and stainless inserts. We were definitely lucky that the outside tires held up to the load without issue.

Not yet. I will have to rearrange the layout due to the larger size.

My Grey tank shows 2/3 at all times. If it goes above 2/3 the top light will light up to show full but even after dumping the lights show 2/3.

Any tips to fix this ??

make sure the sensors are covered with water and add drano... and drive it around. I tried it once... but it cleared a week later. Its just one of those things I dont worry about anymore and just keep an eye on it.

thanks !! I'll try it.. the only time I really watch it is when we dry camp during football season. Other than that I have a built in sensor that yells at me when the water backs up the shower drain when she is taking a shower and I forgot to dump grey..

I am trying to look on the brighter side of things. I am building a new garage/barn for the Palazzo. I think I have more excitement about the barn then I do the Palazzo at the moment.

What's the status on your unit now?

I am researching Thor products after having looked at a Tuscany 36. I cannot imagine having to take a motorhome back to the factory - in this case it is 2500 miles from so-Cal to Elkhart....NOT EVER GONNA HAPPEN!

So are all these slide and end-cap leaking problems happening with just the Palazzo, or the other models too? I saw some photos of the slide mechanisms and was really surprised at how small the gear and teeth are.

We have a 2005 Winnebago that is and has pretty much been problem free, so a little gun shy on a new DP.

Sorry to report that Palazzoblues has moved on and no longer posts on iRV2. You may find him on some other forum?

I am looking at the Tuscany 36 MQ as an upgrade to my current MH so I have been looking for any major problems, slides included and I have not seen anything reported. I have not had any slide problems with my Palazzo but my model was discontinued and never really had the problems that Palazzo with longer/heavier slides had.

I have several friends who own the Tuscany and by in large they are happy. Good luck with your search!
