I purchased a Splendide 2100XC and installed it in our 2006 Diplomat. As Jim says it will take longer than your home unit, especially to dry, and the loads are smaller. My wife loves it and uses it all the time. If you use it once a day you can keep up with the laundry. For big things like a bed spread you will need to seek out a laundry.

The LG has a very different system for venting. As I unserstand it it blows hot air through the clothes then it spray cold water through the exiting air thereby condensing the moister in the air and pumping the resulting water out the drain. We do not notice any increase in temp or humitity in the bedroom area. And yes the door fit back on just fine.

Teofff, we understand that the Splendide should not use the dryer sheets. You need to check into using fabric softener. The following is from there information site. http://www.splendide.com/consumer_tips.htm
"What kind of fabric softener/How much should I use?"

Answer: We recommend using 1-2 tablespoons of a liquid fabric softener as needed - to reduce wrinkling and speed drying. Bio-friendly fabric softeners, or those that appear light in color, dissolve more quickly in less water and minimize build-up within your machine and in the environment. NEVER use fabric softener sheets.

If you have a question about using spendide go to the site I provided it might help you.

Since we're talking about the Splendide a lot here, has anyone found out how to defeat the 'safety-feature' cooldown cycle that locks the door for 2-minutes before you can get clothes out of it? Drives us nuts, clothes simply sit there getting wrinkled while they cool, and then you have to iron them.
I talked to a Splendide-rep about it, and he verified that it's there so someone won't open a hot dryer and burn themselves and then sue Splendide. He also said there was a way to defeat it, but he'd have to kill me before he told me how to do it. Ha anyone else broken the code?

Truthfully, I'd be willing to take a really big chance and try to remember that things may be a bit warm after being heated-up for 40 minutes when I open the door. But I guess I like walking on the wild-side (heck, I even defeated the tv in-motion lockout!).


Off-topic: Hey Dave/Jeri. How's things? When we gonna camp together again?

Ronboc,
I hope this subject (locked door on Splendide) is active on this forum as we just had campingworld install the splendid 2100C in our RV today. I know that my wife (and me too) will want to open the door before the 2 minutes elapses.

Thanks for bring up this subject, HEMI

Can someone comment on the use, or not use, of fabric softener sheets in the splendide dryer? Somewhere I read that these fabric softner sheets are not to be used.

We just had the Splendid Model 2100XC cloths washer/combo dryer installed in our RV...and will give it a first try.

Again, yes, we can use the fabric softner sheets or no, don't use them, thanks HEMI

Ronboc,

It does tell you in the Splendide manual how to bypass this "locked" door on the dryer mode: unfortunately I am at work now and do not have access to the manual.

I have used my dryer 4 times and I do recall reading about this bypass feature, but I have never tried to use it, because I have only had to dry wet bath towels.

Hope this helps,

when it comes to motor home washer/dryers combos we were newbies without any first hand knowledge... our best friend(a Marquis owner) said that he had a washer/dryer combo in his coach but only used it a few times to dry some bath towels.
well we're on vacation now and wifey has used our new Splendid Model 2100XC 2 or 3 times a day for the last 3 days and she loves it...
thanks, splendide
thanks, monaco

The wife also loves our 2100XC and uses it at least once a day every time we go camping.
