Installing washer and dryer combo in 2014 George Town XL

Is there an electrical hook up already installed some where in the closet, or do I have to run a line?
Looking a ventless unit, does anyone have any comments as to problems down the road? ... Thanks for any info double D

We have the Georgetown XL 378 and ours is located in the cabinet to the left as you enter the bedroom.
There should be a 110 volt receptacle in the closet along with the water lines
As for a ventless they will use about 5 gallon of water more per load than the vented type. This is because the heated air is run through the water to cool it down and take our the moisture before returning it to the inside of the coach. Not really an issue unless you dry camp. I don't like wasting the water every load so we chose the vented type.
We love ours.

Which model do you have, my 360 washer plumbing is by the front bathroom behind a panel. Should be there somewhere.
Also I had a ventless combo and would never have one again, would take forever to dry anything.

Waste of money when you can do it at the laundry for two bucks

We have had the vented type since we purchased our Georgetown new.
With 3 years and over 35,000 miles on our GT the washer easily paid for itself not only in money saving but the convenience of not having to find, wait and pay for a dirty laundry location.
If you camp out in your Georgetown 2 to 3 months a year or more. Yes get it.
The convenience of washing is a lifesaver as per my DW. She still does jeans and shirts but as previously mentioned it takes awhile to do a load. You are already paying for the water and electric.
The one thing to remember is that it is for small loads and not designed for large amounts. Even in the owners manual it mentions don't wait until you run out of clothes before starting the washer.
We usually do wash every 3-4 days and start it up when we are going out for a few hours. Oh the dryer cycle may rock the rig or you may think you are in California with earthquakes.

If you have the room and two outlets installed get the washer/dryer stackables. We went with the Whirlpool model and wonder why we didn't do it sooner. The washer takes 50 minutes on the normal cycle and the dryer never needs more than 45 minutes. The washer spins so fast that the clothes are always dry enough so the dryer finishes in 45 minutes. The advantage is you can do 3 loads in under 3 hours. They are whisper quiet and it does not heat up the bedroom. We can wash 2 king size sheets and 2 pillow cases in the same load. It does do some rocking as the load starts to spin but after all it is a fifth wheel not a laundry mat.

X2 we have a splendide pair and we are full time one to two loads a day.

Why spend the "two bucks"? Wait to do it at home.

All kidding aside, we used to think the same way. But, we now full time in our motor home and love the washer and dryer. It cost us at least $10+- and 3+- hours every time we used to do a weekly wash. In the 3 years we've full timed, I don't remember a wash & dry for $2.00. They don't exist where we travel. Maybe a wash for $2.00 and then "line" dry".

We've got Ariston by Splendide stackable washer (ARWXF129W) and dryer (TVM63x).

Well worth it to us.

I have heard people complain about the drying portion of a combo ventless washer dryer...they think the dryer doesn't work, it just doesn't dry as well. A vented would be recommend, you'll be happier with the drying function.
