Did most of you buy from an RV dealer and have it installed? Or is this a DIY project? I am pretty handy, just need instructions.
Mine had been installed by the dealer when new. Not sure on how to install. I guess if all the water lines were pre-run to that location and there is the plug for the unit in the closet, then the most difficult thing maybe using a hole saw and cutting through the wall of the coach for the dryer vent.

Splendide all-in-one is the way to go. Wife loves it.

And don't forget to get the one that is vented to the outside.

We have the Splendid all in one. Originally my wife wanted a stackable but our 390 bh had the all in one already. We are extremely happy for several reasons. We put a load in and go out for the day upon returning the load is done. No need to come back to put the load in the dryer. Also since space is a premium in a motorhome the all in one gives is a very nice large cabinet.

We have the ventless splendide in our coach. With three kids and as much as we travel it gets plenty of use.

No issues with the ventless - works just fine and no need to cut a hole in the side of the coach.

We just bought out XL 378 and asked the dealer to install the Splendide 2100XC combo unit. He did it for no extra cost. Did a great job. (Thanks RV World of Michigan).
We have the vented type so don't know anything about the unvented type. Glad we did. If you space out your laundry duty it will work fine for anybody. We even used it the first day out when we spilled something on the floor and had to clean it up with towels and did the laundry while going down the road. Pretty cool.

That's what I did when I bought my Georgetown.
That combo installed is over $2,000.

I like the vented type cause it expells the hot moist air outside and the AC doesn't have to overcome that. Too much moisture buildup inside and RV will destroy many things if it is not expelled outside.

Iggy,


The ventless model does not vent the moisture into the coach - just a wives tale. :-)

I rest my case!!!

Seriously, it appears this discussion is about as polarized as motor home versus fifth wheel!!

The OP should now be so damn confused, he doesn't know whether to wind his butt or scratch his watch!!


Boowho??

So when you use the dryer where does the humidity go from the clothes if not vented outside the RV? I'm curious to know.

It vents the moisture to the grey water tank, completely contained and nothing vents inside the coach.
