Great time so far (except for the wind out west).
No problems with the rig so far.
Going to Monument Valley from here, then up to Yellowstone and beyond.
We saw a Palazzo at the CG in Tenn. but people never showed.
Say HI if you should see us.

Done the Grand Canyon (3 days), on to Monument Valley in the am.

As many of us have discovered there is a load limit and you can easily exceed this limit by turning on a high wattage draw appliance such as a toaster, hair dryer, etc. when you have both A/C's on. I have to remind the DW of this from time to time. Power Management

The stacker curb weight is 6700 and we will be putting about 8000 into it so the grossed up weight will be under 15,000.

But the Palazzo looks really nice.

Another great trip in the Palazzo. I did not go very far this time, just to Modoc COE campground on the east side of Lake Thurmond. Weather was very hot but with the shade and switching A/C from front to back I was able to keep it comfortable even with only 50 amp service.
I had recently used the CRC lube on the slide motors and rollers as instructed in the video so the slides ran quieter.
Everything in the Palazzo worked perfectly except the owner who made a few mistakes and learned a few more lessons. The sugar/crazy ants were terrible. This is the first time I've had a problem with ants in the coach so now I know to bring something to put around the outside and on the water line, etc.

Jerry,

In Florida we had a time with ants until we got some Terro. After a few days they were not inside the coach anymore.

The Miller household is very fortunate. We have now put 8,200 trouble free miles our 2014 33.2. We have not had any slide problems, our generator starts every time and we have not been locked in or out of our coach. One time our tires needed some air, but the tire monitor alerted us to the need. I checked the batteries today. One showed a little sign of corrosion and the easy flow pumped a little water into them, but not much. I believe we have found a total of five screws that went into the surplus screw department and I did vacuum some saw dust out of the vents.

There were a few cosmetic problems that Thor fixed when we were in Elkhart. The biggest problem was a small flaw on my entry door, so they gave me a new door, new window for the door and a new lock, so I got new keys. They fixed a cabinet door and some molding and they gave me a second travel bar. They made us a bigger knob for the refrigerator door lock, but I am working on what I hope will be a better solution. If it works I will post a picture. RV8 motivated me to add some shelves which improves some areas and brings me to one of the things we love best about our Palazzo. The friends we meet.

We love our Palazzo!

Happy travel all.

We Loved our Palazzo, but....

At the Thor Diesel Club Rally this past April we saw a Tuscany XTE 36MQ and loved the features it had that we didn't have on the Palazzo. The Palazzo has been a good MH for us and I have no regrets for buying it when we did.

Well I started a quest on the Tuscany and found quite a few and tried to make a deal on several of them. Two weeks ago I was scouring the Internet for the 36MQs and found one that had a very good price on it. I had seen this one before but the dealership had just dropped the price to one that I could live with. After some negotiations a net difference price was agreed upon and on the 6th we were in Nashville picking it up. I felt that we got a decent trade in value for our Palazzo. We just got home in our new Tuscany XTE and we love it!

Best of luck to my fellow Palazzo owners.

Here is our new Tuscany XTE 36MQ:
