That Was One Tough Job !!!

D/W called me, our Washer came in so I decided to do the install myself since our rig is set up at a local CG right now.

178 lbs. I got it loaded into the front door of the 5r but that was it!
Later got my 18yr son to help load complete the install and lift up into the hall area with the use of HD straps for lifting.

Not quite in yet as I am not happy with the supply lines coming into the back of washer. Looking at options here.... 90 degree elbows, platform lift,
from reviews on the Camco elbows sounds like lots of folks have ran into this problem and that resolved it.

However, I do not recommend loading this up by yourself like I did, my mind keeps telling me I am 20 and my body reminds me I am not!

Considered going your route, DW reminded me I'm older than she and already subsidizing our chiropractor. We paid the dealer to install.

Did my own install; after 2 friends helped me get it into the coach; bathroom slidingdoor from the kitchen was too narrow, had to take the unit in through the fire window onto the bed and into the bathroom. Once I had it in the bathroom there was only enough room for me and the machine. Had it in and out 4 times , for fitting the hoses, vents, and raising the floor to align the vent with the pre-drilled area from the factory.
DW. says we'll transfere the washer if we trade up to a coach with out one. I say I'm getting buried in this coach.
