Has anyone had experience with this machine. I have one in my MH and have had nothing but trouble with it. It seems that the drum moves so much in travel that it jumps off the mounting places and become unuseable. I have to remove the unit take it apart and rehang the drum [which is no easy task] only to have it happen again on the next trip. Do all brands have this problem?

Your the first post I have seen with this question nothing in FIND either.
Maybe you should check with MFG to see if your WD is missing parts for your problem.

I was on the phone with Majestic the first time this happened and they varified that all was there. I believe the washer with is mounted all the way in the back has too much movement when we are traveling. There is a 10' overhang past the rear wheels so when you go over bumps there must be a lot of up and down and I beleive that is the problem. MFG says not but I think so.

I have heard about problems with Majestic.

Newmar has switched to Whirlpool, and I'm completely satisfied my Whirlpool W/D.

I would agree the bounce has it, any way of wedging something between drum and wall of WD like foam or rubber wedge.

Have you tried putting any weight inside the drum for travel? We are going over 8 years with our Majestic and only problems were heating element went out and had to replace pump seal. It gets used almost every day.
