I bought the Splendie combo washer/dryer, vent kit, 90 elbow and secure fit mounting brackets all from Amazon. It installed easily after almost drilling through a stud. My unit had a label on the wall indicating "drill here for dryer vent" Don't believe them!! Drill the pilot hole as suggested above and find the stud placements. Drilling the hole is easy after that. Now I have a 3/4 moon hole on my wall.

I would also recommend buying fail safe water hoses to replace the ones provided with the washer/dryer. The ones with the unit are, in my opinion, no good.

Good luck with the install.

Is there a problem drilling through a stud? On my Cedar Creek I had no choice

got it installed

I ended up going to my local RV store and purchasing the vent kit that they use themselves. It's similar to the one pictured above but had a glossy black cover. I used a 4" Milwaukee hole saw for cutting through the wall once I drilled a small pilot hole all the way through. I went just a touch left and below where the factory "drill here" sticker was because of a piece of wood trim at the back of the closet. Then I used the hole saw to cut through the interior wall first then moved all the insulation aside to make sure wires or some other obstruction was not in the way. Then I went outside and following my original pilot hole, drilled out the outside 4" hole. The sleeve of the vent kit lined up very well. I did put a thin bead of silicone caulk on the flange of the sleeve and also a very thin bead on the edges of the vent sleeve cover before screwing them into place. The 2 foot long piece of foil vent line was not long enough so I went to the local big box hardware store and bought an expandable to 8 feet long flexible vent line (not the foil type). Everything went well with the install of the Splendide 2100XC although I did not use the supplied washer hoses that came with it. Instead, I bought some stainless braided water hose washer lines that are guaranteed never to split or leak. I didn't take long to install but I did take my bedroom door down to get it through. While my bedroom door is down, I covered some industrial size q-tips with wood glue and inserted them into the door hinge holes, then snipped them off flush. That way my screws will go back in good and tight when I put the door back up.

Washing a load of clothes now just to see how it all works out!

Installing mine was something I would not wish on my worst enemy. Camping World said they would install the washer/dryer for $400 bucks, I wish I had let them. Now the dryer has to come out because something is wrong with the motor. I am taking the camper to IN for cap replacement and at the washer/dryer place they are going to fix it. I tried to tell them how hard it was going to be but the man told me not to worry they could get it and fix it and then put it back.

I have a 15 32RL Cedar Creek and it had been prepped for a washer/dryer but I don't think that Cedar Creek ever intended for anyone to ever install a stacked unit in that closet. The only possible way to install the vent for a stacked unit was to drill through a stud. You could put in a combo unit but the stacked unit was a problem. I have 2in on each side to play with and 2in on top and 3in in the front. I had to saw off half of the vent tube, then after the unit was in place reach through the hole and then pull the exhaust hose through the hole and hook it up to the vent tube. I sent Cedar Creek a email asking how I could put the vent in and I never heard anything back. I called Denise and left a msg and nothing. The 32RL is not made anymore, we love the camper and have no plans to ever trade. The washer/dryer sits on top of the furnace and the bathtub is right behind the closet.

Here is what mine looks like.
It is just a short flex from the washer/dryer to the vent.
All I needed was the 2ft of hose the most.

efficient vent

The shorter and most direct route from dryer to wall vent is the most efficient. Right now my vent opening is approximately the same height as the dryer connection. Going down toward the floor would add a lot of length and unnecessary bends.
Also, this type of vent line flows a lot better than the foil type which came with the Splendide vent kit. The way it is routed now makes it not visible unless you look over the top of the combo unit.
