Some campers have a decal inside the closet where you are supposed to cut the whole. Mine was not marked. You've heard the old adage measure twice, cut once. I probably measured 20 times! I used a stud finder and the good ole' tap method to make sure I wouldn't hit a stud. Once I was pretty sure I had the spot, I drilled from inside to the outside with a long 1/8" drill bit. Then, I went outside to see where the hole was and held to vent hood up to it. Oops. This would have my vent hood running across a piece of trim and it wouldn't be flush with the exterior surface. Since I only drilled a 1/8" hole, I was able to move it 1/2" aft. Now it was time for the hole saw. I believe I used a 4 1/8" hole saw. I started inside and cut easy. You will want to stop cutting as soon as the hole saw makes it through the inner wall. Now feel around and make sure there are no wires running through there. I had a 120 Volt AC wire running through there and it would have been cut for sure if I wasn't careful. Fortunately, there was enough slack in the wire that I could move it to the side. Next, cover the exterior wall with masking tape. This will help to minimize chipping of the gel coat along the edge. Again cut nice and easy and slow with the hole saw. Done! Good luck!

The combo weighs 155 lbs. I complained about the layout being in the front cap and sitting on the pin and not the trailer axles. That was lost on the factory rep at the RV show. You will likely have to remove the bedroom door to get it into the bedroom - I had to.

It is slow but works well. Gets clothes clean and dry. Shakes the trailer a bit in the spin cycle. Loads are small and an hour and a half per load is not unusual. Dryer works better if you fluff the clothes after the spin cycle.

$900 is a good price. Be sure and get the anchor plates for securing it.

My Silverback had a 'drill here' decal. Used a 4" hole saw, easy to cut and install vent kit. Install facing into the bedroom and just behind the closet for. Be sure and get a vent kit that is rodent proof. You will also need a refused clearance 90 degree adapter ( found one at Ace hardware ). I have heard of folks removing shelves and installing on a shelf and facing starboard into the closet. That requires some carpentry and puts the weight even farther outboard ( where your batteries are as well).

As said the DW is extremely pleased with this addition. We dry our bath towels and it bakes them last days longer. Clean sheets no problem and a daily small load while we sightsee or relax in the evening is a piece of cake.

Thanks everyone, I saw a unit at Lowes but it was 2 inches to deep. I'll look around and see where I can find a good price. I have to take the camper back to the factory in October for cap replacement, do think I might could buy one from Cedar Creek? DW doesn't want me to install it but I figure I can save a couple hundred dollars to do it myself. I plan to put a satellite dish on camper next month, DS is supposed to help me install that.

don't always believe the Drill Here is correct. I did mine where it said to drill, went right thru a stud. I'm keeping the drilled out piece forever, will show the dealer when I stop by.

Mine has no drill here, you have to measure and then drill. And as someone said measure again. If you could find one that worked for a apartment would you get it or the Splendide

Does anyone know a good place to order a washer/dryer from? I found a what I think is a good price at RV parts country $1353.00 shipping included. If possible I want to order by the first of August. I have to take out the drawers and shelves. That's a job in itself

Camping world often has the Splendide units on sale. I think we paid about $1200 for our stackable set at camping world. We had to wait for the sale, of course. The quality of the Splendide units is amazing. Also, they are made for the rigors of boats and RV's. Apartment units are not made to be bouncing down the road or across waves.

I did some searching and that seems to be the best price anywhere right now. I may have paid more than I remember, but a happy wife is a happy life! LOL! Also, I used to live about 40 minutes from a Camping World and I didn't have to worry about shipping.
