Remove carpet when installing washer / dryer combo?

We are installing a washer dryer combo in our Samdpiper 5th wheel. It will be in the closet. Has anyone removed the carpet under the washer when installing or just on the carpeted floor of closet? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

Being a retired plumber, I would remove the carpet, and place some type of drip pan under the washer.....I have seen far too many washer leaks that destroyed flooring under them. (In residential uses.) In a moving, shaking mobile RV, probably even more important. just my opinion.

They make a tray with drain sized perfectly for the Splendide units. I just drilled a hole in closet floor and ran hose into front storage area and down one of the stabilizer Jack holes.
