Washer removal

We have a 2006 HR Endevor and the stupid vent hose for our Splendede 2100 fell off.
I took the vent cover off the curb side thinking I could reattatch the hose like at the stick house--won't work.
I have decided the best course of action would be to remove the washer/dryer and reattach the hose but then either there would be an excessive amount of vent hose needed to attach the hose to the outlet and the sidewall exaust .
Surley This has happened to someone else, if so how did you fix the problem ?
How heavy is that thing ? is it a one man job or a small army ?

I have a combo unit and the same thing happened. I slipped my head inside the cabinet and wiggled the hose back onto the vent housing until it stayed. I then wrapped it with duck tape. What a pain it was for sure. I don't know how else to do it without removing the unit(s). Good luck.

I had to replace the vent hose on our 2005 Ambassador. I was like you, and even pulled the unit out trying to figure out the solution. I finally realized the shelf above the unit was held in with (I think 4 screws). Removed them and the shelf lifted out. I could then access the rear of the unit with no problem.

I have a QuietLine wash/dry system that I removed and don't need anymore. It came out of our 2001 HR which we picked up last summer. Never used it and it looks brand new. Using the space for a small refrigerator because our Norcold won't cool on AC and i don't trust running it on LP - heard too many "fire" stories for my comfort level. (we need fresh food more than clean clothes every morning)... :-)

I anyone knows anybody in the mid-Atlantic area that needs one please send me a private message.

broadrun: Are you aware that many of the fires start when using the electric element?. According to what I have read the fires start right close to the element????

I had to take my washer/dryer combo out of the cabinet to work on it and I had to take the shelf out that is above the washer to get the hose back on. My washer/dryer combo was mfd. in Spain and it weighs 167 pounds. I made a shelf to slide the washer out all the way to work on it. I was getting ready to go buy a new machine but looked at everything I could and didn't find any obvious things and finally pulled the circuit board and saw where it had spit some solder out of a relay solder joint on the circuit board itself. I got my solder gun out and re-soldered 2 points and put everything back together and it worked fine. This machine is vented and we wash everything except for the bed spread cover. I know a lot of owners curse these machines but if I had to go back to using a pay laundry I would quit this RV stuff.

Have not heard that but will do some research. Thanks.

I have my small frig connected to the outlet that runs the microwave because that it one is hooked up to the inverter and works while rolling down the highway.
