How do I get a Washer into my Motorhome

I have a 2002 Holiday Rambler Endeavor 40Ft Diesel Pusher. Bought it last year and put about 6,000 miles on it so far. The wife asked if we could put a Washer/Dryer in. I said yes the Motorhome is already prepped for a washer /dryer combo. I bought a unit and have it in the garage awaiting the install. My question is how the heck do I get it into the motorhome. I'm thinking I need to remove one of the bedroom windows since there isn't enough room to get it past the bathroom doorway. Am I missing something obvious? If I do need to remove one of the windows does anyone have a how to for removing and re-installing the window?

If the window opening is large enough, that would be the only way to get it in !
Make sure you reseal your window frame perfectly !

To remove a window if you can't get to all the screws you may have to remove blind and valance,remove all inside screws with a razor knife cut any sealer on the outside and work it out. To reinstall get some butyl tape in believe in comes in white and black. You also have to do the samething to change out fridge.

agood01, from what I've been told --and I'm sure the nice folks who participate here will correct me if what I say isn't completely true-- the Splendide combos usually can either be 1) be maneuvered through the front door (the passenger seat may or may not have to be removed), or 2) fit through one of the "emergency exit" windows that are hinged at the top ...usually found in the bedroom. In most cases does a window frame itself or the windshield have to be removed to get the washer combo in and out. It all depends on your specific layout, emergency window dimensions, and/or the front door dimensions and the area around the door as to whether you have to actually remove a window frame or the windshield.

This is only what I've been told, however. I don't have any actual experience in taking one out or getting one in a motorhone.

I have a 2002 Diplomat and just changed the washer dryer combo it fit through the front door and between the seats I had 2 young men cradle it in 2 2" straps it wend down my hallway between the shower and the toilet door it had to be almost on the floor to clear the door handle then up on the bed into the closet and through the opening to its permanent home. It's close but can be done as I think your HR is the same coach😎

I just put a new washer in my 2000 Endeavor. I had to remove the bathroom door and hinge to get it through the hallway. The front entry door was easy, just disconnect the scissor mechanism from the top of the door.

OK, lots of good info here. Freestyle21, I hope your wife either has a good sense of humor or she doesn't read these fourms. mccrob, I can get it through the front door on mine as well but my fridge is on the passenger side right next to the bathroom and the area at the sliding door is only 21 inches wide so that unfortunately isn't an option. I think my emergency exit window is too small but to be honest I have not opened it to take a measurement. I will do that tonight. I have one other option and that would be to remove the front of the washer. It's a good 4 inches but the drum may still stick out too far. I will try just about anything to keep from removing the window.

I have done both. I would take out the window over disassemble the washer any day. The window is typically less than 30 minutes first time. After you have done one you will wonder what all the fuss is about.

When I installed a splendide in my Winnie , I removed the top and temporarily removed the ~25 lb piece of concrete they use as a stabilizer. Reinstalled it after I got it in place. Made the moving easier

My Splendid went right in the front door. The hard part was getting it through the cabinet doors, it fit OK, but not with my hands around it.
