Putting washer/dryer combo in Sunseeker

Has anyone done this in a 3170ds? What kind, where in rig, how was installation, do you like it? I'm looking at the LG combo at HD. I hate laundromat s !

I guess you will have over 2000$ in it when finished plus the loss of room in rv. Makes me like laundry mats little more for a couple times a year. But if I did it the combo you are talking would be a good one

Bought the LG combo-now to get it in the MH! It's 27" wide. Won't fit through the door. Anybody removed large rear window for this? What about emergency exit window at head of bed? Will that work with over head cabinet there? Any body have any ideas-all thoughts appreciated!

Lg washer&dryer

If I did not carry it back I would take the lg apart to make smaller and carry in that way or hire a appliance repairman to do it

Here's an idea. Try the Ford cab doors. If really desperate you can remove the passenger seat and/or a cab door.

Last result would be to completely remove one of the slides.

It should just fit through rear window. How do you remove it? After you unscrew the screws inside do you just push out from inside? Is there putty that needs to be removed befor re installing? What do you seal it with? My son and friends will be doing it so I just need to know what we'll be faced with, and what sealant to buy. Thanks for any advice.

pull blinds and valance. pull screws and pry gently from outside. i reseal with butyl tape. trim excess with pen knife right away and then again after a few hours. slice excess vertically following frame and then pull excess off while you slice so it doesnt embed in siding. thats just my preferred way. dont like d foam or putty tape on clamp ring windows. caulk is not needed on butyl...if it has d foam, you could just replace and caulk. i like lexel for a caulk. found at ace. please get the hang of a fine bead before application. its kind of an artform. good luck...

Thanks for the info, Crockett. Can't find butyl tape- stuff I found is called cord weatherstrip by MD. Will that work? The window is 1/4 " bigger than the washer/dryer! I'll let you know how it all turns out.
