hi jim, I saw your note and thought I would tell you what I recently bought. it is a haier portable washer that came from walmart online. it does a load about half the size of a normal washer, and does work great.it is a 1.0 cu ft unit. I built mine under my vanity and made the table top a flip up style. I also bought a spin drier and keep outside compartment. it spins the closes at 2k rpm and pretty much gets them dry. we bought a couple of the little rotating hang up driers from camping world and we get 'er done

Our Pace Arrow has a Splendide w/d combo. We use the washer, which does a good job. The dryer, being 110 volts takes 90-120 minutes per load, and is water cooled, so leave your grey tank open. We don't use the dryer, but hang the clothes outside. If you stay mainly in campgrounds/resorts with laundry facilities, you will take a long time to recoup your investment in a w/d for your motorhome. This being said, they're handy to have. Eddie Elk.

We have a Splendide 2100XC that works very well. It is our second one as the first one went with the motorhome when we sold it a couple of years ago. Ours is a vented model which I would assume does help with the drying. There is an unvented model also. We would not be without it. Just remember it does not work like your home versions and if you expect it to you will be disappointed. Smaller, more frequent loads are what we do.

The Splendide 2100 is the one most folks use. It is made in Europe,
and is the most popular machine. Also used a lot in yachts. Does a
very good job, tough and dependable, engineered for the camper
environment. The length of the wash cycle varies with each of the
8 or so wash cycles choices. Drying time varies with the load.
I doubt that you will find a better choice.

Depends on the settings you select. Water pressure also. per wash, extra rinse, all these add extra time if selected

Mine is a Splendide 7100 ventless W/D combo unit. Takes about 4 hours per cycle. I wash very small loads - basically a single change of clothes a day - and holy moly do my clothes come out wrinkled! I had to buy an iron and ironing board. I wonder if the 2100 (vented model) is any better.

Yes, it is. The 2100XC has 25% more capacity than our previous 2100. Depending on the garments, the wife can wash and dry a couple of pair of jeans and several shirts in about 2 hours. She sometimes has to extend the drying time for heavy stuff but usually no more than 30 minutes. Our washer closet is actually made for a stack system so there is a closet rod above the washer where she will hang some things that need a little air drying. There is not a problem with wrinkles.

Was our choice 9 years ago, still serves us very well. I the man can also do the washings while busy outside. Get in and voila all done and dried. I raised the closet rod and we use it to store our jackets. Our unit closet is in the hall to the bedroom.
