I'm sure that I've seen a reference from Splendide in the past, but in a recent search I haven't been able to track that down (yet).

They do say that you should install it over the axle (mid-ship in boats) where the movement is at a minimum, and that you should block the machine to prevent extreme movement. They sell installation brackets to firmly anchor the machine to the vehicle. Like us, the previous owners of our motorhome traveled with their children, which pretty much requires daily laundry in these tiny machines. They washed and dried clothes while driving, and we intend to do the same.

I see a lot of motorhomes with laundry units at the rear instead of over the axle. Some of them. Use standard residential appliances. Doing laundry while the vehicle is in motion may be a bigger deal in this situation, but I am only guessing.

If you call Splendide tech support, they will tell you that this can cause a lot of damage to the machine!
