Dryer Venting

I have a 36qbq 5er with W/D connections in the front cap/closet area.

How are we supposed to vent the dryer in there? I see no vent connection. Surely you don't vent into the RV, right? I wouldn't want to cut into the side of the RV, but I see no other option!

You must come through the side of the fiver just aft of the cap. Ours had a label where to make the hole.

Could you vent into the basement?
Then just open the doors when doing laundry?

You can buy a washer/dryer combo that is ventless. I have heard these models don't dry as well though.

I went through the basement and through the underbelly. Then I used a standard vent that can be bought at Home Depot. Here's a rough picture of the duct work through the floor (behind cabinet access panel)

I put the vent through the floor in my Wildcat. Wildcat Chris told me there was an X under the front closet. But mine was power washed off before I installed the combo. I drilled a small hole to where I thought that maybe a good location. My 4" vent hole went behind my dresser and down through the bottom side of my cap.
