hmmmm.... I don't know who 'told' you that, but my Palazzo 33.3 from later 2014 has never needed anything.

But, what some don't understand about the tires on these diesel pushers is that in order to have the optimal smooth and 'less pulling' ride, you need to weigh your coach, with axle weights separately for both front and rear, and then refer to your tire manufacturer's guidelines for the PSI for the fronts and the rears... you may find that you have your tires way over inflated. Don't go by the 120psi stated on the tires, you'll probably find that 85-95 is a MUCH better ride, and more along the lines of what the weight to PSI ratio is for your axles/tires.

Secondly, if you have an 'pull' to either drive tire, you may actually only need a tire swap, which is what we found early on when ours seemed to 'pull' to the right. Freightliner's Oasis shop, in Gaffney where the chassis are built, simply swapped the two front tires and we had no more issues. But, any truck tire shop can do that for you - easy.

I donít live in SC but what you need to find is a big rig frame shop, most of them do alignments, had it done on our Tuscany. And no, it isnít cheap! Safe-T-Plus is definitely a should have and do item, makes driving much easier!!!

This morning I picked up my 2015 Palazzo 33.2 from storage without any problem started right away, but shortly after I got home it didn't start. I had it plugged in for few hours, still no luck. So I called AAA and after 3 tries (3 different company) they couldn't get it to start. What could be the problem. Any idea?

We also have a 2015 Palazzo. We've had a host of repair issues with the slide, but the ride on ours is great. Takes bumps as well well as my truck, even on rougher roads. It tracks well, does not pull to one side, does not shake or wobble, and the tires are wearing evenly. When you say a better ride what are you referring to?

I had a similar problem when I first got our 2015 33.3 coach last spring. I did not have the parking brake set and I did not have it in neutral. I felt a bit silly after I finally was told what to check.
Also, did you check to see if you turned off the chassis battery main disconnect switch when you got home and maybe did not turn it back on when you tried to start it again ? Just a thought. Hope you get it figured out .

right, you'll have to provide more details about what you mean by 'it won't start'.... does it click, does it turn over, does it just not stay running....?

Headlights

I just purchased a 2020 33.5 Palazzo and believe it or not I cannot for the life of me figure out how to turn on the headlights. I donít mean the main headlights and the high beams and even the fog those I got. When you look at the front of the coach there is a set of three lights the inner most light of light with all the little LED light inside it, that one I cannot find any information on anywhere nor a button nor switch.????? Anybody
