How much you can wash and still shower, wash dishes,potty etc.same with potable water if you boondock. Just my 2 cents worth.been there done that.lol

Very true, it does use some space on the Grey tank but this specific one is very efficient. Splendide 7100xc capable of washing up to 15Lbs and dry 11. I usually load about 10-12 at the most. Daily wash mostly.

I'm only intending on going to places with hookups too so, that's easier on my side. But def wouldn't recommend for those who won't.

Thanks

Madelyn, this is a Ventless version, very efficient, installed On the copilot side. It does take a lot of the already limited space of the FR3, but is worth every inch from my point of view.

It's such a clever idea - I'm sold on - beats the Laundromat any-day. I couldn't figure out how to put in a W/D until I saw what you did.
Did you reinforce the floor in anyway before installing yours?

Haven't had any issue at all. Even with all 4 TVs on, W/D A/C and microwave. Was really testing the big boy.

I did make some structural changes as the weight over time could become and issue, is still below specifications though but did it for the future. I put some supports to the chassis in that sector and some wooden supports to keep the machine from moving when driving.

Thanks so much. I really appreciate the help. I'll send out a note when I get mine installed. Can't wait.

Just curious. On those spaces above the fridge and microwave, did you just knock out paneling piece?

Did you TV mount open up of from the side? Mine opens up. I have measured the width of a 39 inch and it would block the cabinet door.

How did you keep it from bouncing around? Did you have to reinforce the floor?

I love the idea ( I am a germaphobe myself)
