Smile vented washer/dryer in Adventurer

Our Adventurer has a notice in the washer/dryer area not to intall a vented dryer so we put in a ventless unit in 2002. We are tired of the long dry time and are going to put a stacked washer dryer unit in place of the combo. Can anyone tell me where it is safe to drill the vent hole for the dryer. It will be in the top half of the bay since this is a separate waher and dryer.
Appreciate any thoughts.

I have owned 2 Winnebago Coaches the first an Adventure and now the Chieftain. Both of my dryers were vented. I would suggest a call to Winnebago customer service and pose your question to them. The number I have is 800-537-1885. I have found them to be very helpful. Good luck and please let us know what your option turns out to be.

That's odd about the no vented notice. Mine is a vented combo as well and came from the factory that way, but still the dryer cycle takes a long time despite it being vented. I think that's just the way it is as I've also seen other people saying that's their experience, so I only do laundry when I'm not in a hurry for it.

Sorry...I cannot answer your where to put the vent hole question. Our vent is a little to the left and down from the bathroom window of our 2000 Adventurer 37G, I think (can't see it from where I'm sitting in the stick house for a precise description--but it's in that vicinity). I agree that you should call Winnebago for their advice. Good luck!

I had CW install my Splendide Ariston stacked units and they drilled the hole and installed the chrome vent. I never did ask how they determined where to put the vent but I've seen the structural members on the side of my coach when there has been dew on a cool morning. The members will stand out well under those or similar conditions so you could determine where the vent has to be.
