Getting water out of Splendide

OK, apparently the pump in the Splendide is either clogged or non-functioning and it won't drain. Anyone have a good solution for getting the water out without getting it all over the MH floor?

It's an older model. The manual says set to rinse but it stops at the point where it is supposed to drain and doesn't continue. The manual says the pump may be clogged but I have to get the water out before I can do anything else and it is above the bottom of the door. I'm trying to figure out how to get the water out without spilling a few gallons on the floor...

Getting water out of Splendide

Howdy RVMs!
There are a variety of cheap siphon pumps at hardware stores. If you can put the input into the water, you get it done quickly

This happened to us on the road and we purchased a small Shop Vac. It worked but we had to empty numerous times. Have plenty of towels on hand to wipe up the excess. I now keep the small Shop Vac in our rig.

I did replace the pump later. If you are mechanically inclined it's not too bad of job but a second pair of hands is a must to handle the machine.

Good luck

To get the water out of mine I use the spin cycle. It is also the spin cycle that I use when I winterize in the fall.

Penny

Plugged drain in mine too. Penny in drain hose. Wooshing noise is drain pump trying to work. Check pockets before washing. Took 3-4 tries to get it out.

Water level is above door - if pump is busted and hose is not plugged - try lowering drain hose to floor level and see if it drains out by gravity.

On mine I was able to get enough of a plastic funnel-like configuration to get the water to run into a bucket. Some towels for the amount that missed and it worked out. You twist the removable part of the pump accessed in front, and you can control the rate the water comes out. Stop when bucket is needing to be dumped, and then start again.

Get a beer. Tip the washed back until the water is below the door level. Open door. Insert siphon hose. Siphon into bucket. Drink beer. Empty bucket. Absorb praise from wife. Done.
