Smile how to remove splendide from motorhome

We are replacing our splendide in our 2001 fleetwood and wondered if anyone else had done this and what is the best way? We are replacing with a new model the measurements are the same so they way it comes out is the way we have to put the new one in thanks so much for any help.

If the Splendide is wider than the doorway then the manufacturer loaded it in before the slides, windshield or another large window were installed.This is a common problem when owners swap out the fridge for a residential model.

I had mine removed when I bought my Bounder. I wasn't there but I know it went out the door.

Slould go in/out the main door. Mine did in my fiver. I did have to take the door and trim off the closet door where it was, but other than being really heavy it should come right out.

I believe I read you can remove the counter weights inside to make it lighter. Something about concrete weights. I know if I ever try to remove mine I will do it with a check book and not my back.

In our Windsor there is a removable panel inside the BR closet that gives access to all the connections behind the W/D and it is big enough that the unit could come out that way.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

When CW installed the Splendide in our MH they removed the passenger seat and it came out the door. Like the carpenters creed says "measure twice, cut once".

Update to my previous reply. While I was in the hospital recovering from heart surgery last Thursday, I phoned my cousin who had a splendide installed in their gas MH. She said they removed the passenger-side windshield to put it inside the MH.

The pocket door into the kitchen on my DS was too narrow for the washer. It had to go onto the bed and out the fire exit.
I'm thinking that every different floor plan has it's quirks as far as this is concerned.

Sorry about that. Please do not use a cutting torch in your rig without paid up ins. Should fit out front door, that's what inlaws are for.!

Mine went out the door, no problem. Found a set of plastic stacking drawers at WalMart that fit the space perfectly.

We just replaced ours with a new one last week. Paid Camping World to do it. Took them one hour to take the old one out and put the new one in. Was well worth the money.

thanks to all I have measured and the only tight spot will be the front door and yes I had thought the passenger seat needs to be removed. I am replacing my 2000s with the 2100xc I got mine used and tested before I will put back in space. I haven't taken the old one out yet but it is unhooked. I will post when I have completed as far as someone else putting it in I have spent so much on trying to figure out what was wrong with old unit could not afford a new one or labor to put in lol.
