DIY washer/dryer install

We just scored a sweet deal (hopefully) on a Splendide 2100 washer/dryer combo. Now I need to install it. I would prefer to do it myself if possible, but have no idea how difficult it is. Someone with experience please tell me whether or not it's feasible. I'm mostly concerned with cutting a hole for the vent. I believe the rest is already set up. Also, will doing something like this void my warranty? It's a 2017 Coachmen Chaparral 390QSMB. Thanks in advance!

Hey! I literally just got done with having my buddy install mine. I did very little of the work, but overall- it wasn't very hard.

Drilling that hole was the most nerve wracking thing. We had to measure off of a window to make sure we weren't drilling in the wrong spot (like, our first line up was towards the front cap and we had to move back!).

No warranty will be voided - but if you have water intrusion at this spot, then they'll certainly not warrant it.

There is a center line sticker in the master bedroom closet, passenger side. This makes me feel like I can do it myself. Seems like it should be as simple as drilling a pilot hole there, then using a hole saw from the outside.

Finally got this done! Had a few minor hiccups but nothing too bad. I think the hardest part was installing the drain-a-way pan.
