That is one of the things that makes it a musk for us. And MUSK is the definitive word. I don't care who you are - 2 to 3 weeks of dirty laundry has musk all their own. I believe the scent is known as Eau de Locker Room or the other - Eau de Dirty Socks and Jock Straps.

Sure - you won't even notice it after a while - like smokers can't smell themselves - or you can't smell your own bad breath - but the rest of us will know in short order. I have not had 2 or 3 weeks of dirty laundry in my life since I don't know when and DW - Never.

The original unit in my 92 Eagle died last year, well it was 22 years old, it wasn't that great and was beating the coach to death.

I got one of the new dual units, bigger capacity Splendide. Its really quiet and no more motorhome dancing up and down. I would come home with stacks of dirty laundry and hate that. I also do not like Laundromats, I do take blankets and throw rugs to one or wait till I get home to wash them. I hang a lot of things to dry but also have an ironing board and iron along if things are wrinkled. That was one of the reasons we sold the last coach, no W/D and no bathtub for DD. Wouldn't be without one.

We use ours exclusively. The DW had an issue with them being smaller and used the CG laundry but I used them from the start. After awhile she began to see the the convenience far out weighed the load restrictions. Ours is in the powder room midships and with the door closed you can barely hear them. During the rinse cycle you may feel the washer but nothing disturbing. Well worth the money.

Box 1

Box 1. Coach did not have one but was all plumbed for it. Bought a combo unit so only lost 1/2 the closet space. Got tired of going to laundry mat. Now can toss in a load while cooking dinner, reading a book, relaxing, hanging out and don't need to drag laundry, supplies to a facility. Love it.

Box 1. As an added benefit my husband uses the dryer for a towel warmer before his shower and to dry his towel when he's done with his shower. No more wet towels hanging to dry. Wouldn't have an rv without one!

Box 3 but have thought about adding a combo.

We're usually just weekend travelers but we do try to get a few longer trips in each year. With three kids we either come home with a ton of dirty clothes or we end up using the CG machines which are a total waste of time. Walking 200 yards with two laundry baskets full of clothes, waiting for a machine to open up, go back in 30 minutes to put clean clothes in dryer...whoops not quite done yet. Wait...put clothes in dryer go back 45 minutes later, some clothes dry but not everything (jeans especially). Put wet clothes in dryer and drag laundry basket #1 back 200 yards to RV. Go back to laundry...almost dry but not quite...wait. Finally done so lug basket # 2 back to RV.

No time to do much else when it's laundry time. I can handle this 2-3 times per year but never full time. Next rig will have stackable W/D.

We use our combo all the time. Neither of us like laundromats.

Box 1, full timers for 20 years, 4th rig, second one with combo, with first two rigs, witnessed too many scuzzy laundromats. Just have to learn to manage laundry.

Always wanted one in our previous coach - had one installed in our current coach and love it, love it, love it. Will never be without it in another coach.

We're on our 6th RV & 4th class A in over 30 years of RVing. Our new '13 40'er came with a combo unit. DW had always said she didn't want one, but since we now have one, she's changed her mind & loves it! No more hauling dirty clothes to CG facilities. Also, we don't travel with as many changes of clothes. We'll see what happens when the inevitable occurs (it breaks down)!!
