Washer shakes the entire coach

Anyone have any ideas? When we run the washer and as it is spinning up or slowing down from spinning it shakes the entire coach. Anyway to secure or balance this thing?
Thanks

Washer in our Legacy does the same thing. I think the main issue is that it IS anchored directly to the coach frame, which then transmits the vibration. I just figured it was a matter of "that's how it is".

After a long early morning drive to our destination, wife decided to try out the washer in our new GTown just before we laid down for a quick nap. All was fine until it hit the spin cycle and the bed started to vibrate. We looked at each other and started to laugh.

Just think in the 70s people actually spent money on a vibrating bed and you get it for free. 😀. Hopefully it's not too bad.

We actually don't feel it unless we are laying down. It's a little more pronounced in the rear of the coach, since that's where the W/D is. The rest of the cycles have no affect.

load balanced?

does it do it more with towels or blankets jeans only?

the anchoring very well could be the issue
is there a method to remove it and put some sort of rubber buffer on each leg and reattach so it acts as a damper?

Yep, that's what they do, it seems. We always say that it helps "loosen" what's in the loo! LOL
