we have a pinnacle combo unit - VERY happy with it
it makes washing and drying clothes so convenient

and for sure - get the outside vented model!
FYI; with our model, there are options on the cycles that dictate the length of the wash (doesn't have to be 40 minutes)

I just changed out my Splendide with the new Splendide XC model. Still a piece of crap, but thats all you can get

PS you don't need to buy special hoses, they come with new ones.

Discount RV on line in Illinois. Best price delivered. less than a grand
Also, Jim is right about the jeans. I did two pair at once and it shook so bad the wires pulled loose and shorted the control board. If anybody needs any parts except the control board, I got one sitting in my basement. I even have the two chunks of concrete that they use for counterbalance.

Wow…this post is almost as controversial as asking which oil is best!

Unfortunely or maybe fortunely my washer does not dump into the holding tank making it necessary to be hooked up to the sewer before using. (Don't ask how I found out). If you install a dryer unit that is vented to the outside then measure three times before cutting vent opening. Helped friend cut opening in a Dutch Star using a Newmar template and found it wasn't accuate. Had to modify vent pipe to fit to dryer

Another reason to use a ventless machine.

We have taken some pretty long trips and have been gone for extended periods of time. This would not have been possible without our W/D combo.

I also vote for the Splendide. I wouldn't be without it and prefer it to the stackable because it gives me extra storage. Like some others said I wash a lot more than 1 pair of jeans. For the almost 3 years I have it, I having been doing a weeks worth of clothes (yes, that's a fresh change every day lol) at a time without any problems and very little wrinkling. The only time I get out the iron is for something I would iron using a stix house laundry which isn't often. My bed sheets are the knit, tee shirt type material, quite heavy when wet and I have never had a problem washing them with a couple towels. They also don't take any longer to dry than when I use to dry them in a conventional dryer. I do have the vented one which I have heard dries better than the ventless but have not verified that. Someone told me they were told that when they were purchasing one to install.

It is sooo nice for me not having to use campground or commercial laundramats.

Anyone who has a problem with bad vibration should have it checked to make sure the installer removed the factory shipping blocks, if they didn't, a bad vibration is the result. If you have limited ability for this install I'd highly recommend having a professional do the install. RVhauler, where was your washer drain connected? It's fairly easy to route it into your grey water holding tank.

I fish a lot so I have went to all Nylon clothes and it does real good on nylon

Just curious as to where you installed the WD as we also have the 05 Voyage 33v.

Our coach came plumbed for, but without the W/D. My wife finally got her wish and had a Splendide XC installed. I wouldn't be without one now, so much less hassle than hauling laundry back and forth, and sitting in a hot, noisy, and mostly uncomfortable plastic chair waiting to change loads! Now I can knock back a tall cool one while chatting with the neighbors about their yarn purchases..... Yes, you do need a daily regimen to keep up with the hamper loads, but the time is well worth it!

And anything you dry in that thing will come out compressed into a solid wrinkled ball.
This is completely wrong...sorry but ours rock

They all have a bad vibration(balance problems) . If you want to check to make sure the 4 shipping bolts have been removed, open the door and yank on the drum. If it slops around, there out.

Love mine, can do several loads a day if I want to. I always use express which makes the wash time about 20 mins and I use 50 mins dry time for heavy loads.

Vegasdan-it was plumbed directly into the dump drain outlet past the tank valves
