Check to make sure the W/D is properly strapped down

Bought our 2015 36 foot, fifth wheel in March with the Splendide vented combo installed. We returned last week from a Three month trip to Alaska. The W/D worked well for us although the dryer is a little slow. But returning through Canada we had a problem with the W/D unit. While trying to make a left hand turn in a Wal-Mart parking lot the wheels of the trailer ran up over a curb. (Not Good) At our next stop for the night the W/D unit had turned over in the closet. I was able to return the unit to the pedestal and everything on the W/D worked OK. Five days later on Canada highway 99 there was an unusual left turn followed by a sharp turn to the right going down a 12% grade. WOW! Well guess what when we got to our next overnight stop the W/D was turned over again. This time there was NO fixing the W/D. When we got to Seattle I went to Camping World to see if anything could be done for the W/D unit. After checking the W/D they said it couldn't be repaired. Fortunately they had a new one in stock so $1348.86 later we were back on the road. I have an extended warranty but they said they would not cover the washer because the policy doesn't cover loose or broken screws.
Monday I'm taking the RV back to the dealer I bought it from for some other problems I have with the trailer. And I want them to explain why the washer-dryer was not properly strapped down and had just two ell brackets and screws across the bottom of the W/D. I think they should pay for the replacement of the Splendide.

when you get down South. I hear it's suppose to be much colder down there this winter.
Throwing digs is all we full timers have to do. Being retired, and NO lawns to mow, shrubs to trim, etc, etc, etc we have plenty of time to aggravate you non-retired, non-full timers from here in the sunny, warm south.




Boowho??

Put a combo LG w/d in my Sunseeker 3170ds in the bunk area. Had to do the plumbing as it didn't come pre done. Removed the couch, and placed the full sized unit with door towards rear. I love it- it does take longer to dry and you have to use the timed dry- but no laundromat! If full hook up no extra $. It does full sized load in the 4.2 cf drum. One caveat-use the hoses it comes with, not flood free ones because you need the volume of water to make the dispensers work.

Here's the Berkshire cousin speaking up again
We squeezed (or Coachmen did ) a full size sofa hide-a-bed through our door....so I'm sure a stackable washer / dryer will fit.

We have the splindyde stackable in ours....GREAT feature

BTW
Phil and Craig are both pretty nice guys

Paulie Boy - can you send me the model #'s of your Whirlpool washer/dryer. After all I've read, the stackable unit seems to be the best of us.


Thanks,
Fred

We had a combo washer/dryer non-vented would wash ok but poor job of drying. Removed it and now have extra storage room. Had to take door off to get it outside. If we were to put one in it would be a stackabe unit.

Does anyone else have their washer that smells(stinks)? If so how did you get rid of the smell our has smelled and and ruined clothes since it was 6 months old. We used it 2 to 3 times a week. I've tried bleach, vinegar, wash machine cleaner nothing seems to work.
