I don't know how my name keeps comin up. I do nuthin around the house. I never wash a dish, never vacuum, wash nor fold clothes. And cookin, that's really for sissies. I would never do any of that stuff. It is all woman's work. Miss Jo waits on me hand and foot.

You otta be ashamed!!! At least you've come to grips with the problem. That's the problem half solved. You may be famous someday....as being last knuckle-draggin' male alive! Does the word "neanderthal" mean anything to ya.

Miss Jo.......you gotta one of the last "mohigans". You are indeed a saint, girlfriend!!

BTW...You sure know how to yank my chain!

I've seen Chief in action. He has lots of honey-dos and he does a lot more to do too.....or anything his lovely bride thinks needs to be done. Chief may be the ruff and tuff military style Chief around here........but at home....well you know.....

I never worry about getting someone else’s cooties in the laundry mat. The water in a washer can not get hot enough to kill any bacteria. In stead of fabric softener I use Pine Sol, it kills everything and it makes my clothes softer than fabric softener ever did. The big plus is after one has been sick it kill the germs in my bed sheets and the big plus is it doesn’t have a perfume smell so when I am in the out doors the flying insects are not attracted to me. Also it is cheaper!!

weight?

I am looking at a used Excel ltd with a washer and dryer. Not sure of the make but they are factory installed. I am somewhat concerned about the added weight of the pair. I was told that the washer weighs 400#. How can that be? Pretty hefty piece of equipement to haul around.

While I don't have the set up, I have been looking and as I recall they should not even weight that much together. I thinking the washer was 173 lbs. The dryer was lot less.

I may have misunderstood. We were also talking about a generator and I can underestand one of those weighing 400#.

If you're still concerned about the washer/dryer stackables, we were told to plan around 275 lbs or so for them.

We had Whirlpool Stackable's in our Excel that were excellent. I'd recommend them. We have a combo in our MH. When we first got the MH I was going to take out the combo and put in the stacks. Folks suggested I give the combo a chance. It took some getting used to. Carol has got it down to a science. Blue-jeans come out with a crease and we have survived with it quite well. We like the ease of doing the laundry in the rig. We do use laundromats for blankets and large items, but our day to day stuff is done in the rig. The space we have saved with the combo allows me to keep my motorcycle leathers hung up and space for them.

When I installed my new washer and dryer I was able to carry the dryer from the truck to the trailer myself so I know it was under 100# probably 85-90 #. The washer was too heavy for me so I had someone help me put it in place. I estimate it at 150#. When I removed my old style tv by myself I weighed it at 100# so I can estimate what I can lift and 100# is my limit.
I might suggest that if you are interested in buying a certain rv that you ask that it be taken to a scale and weighed before putting any money down on it, that way you can subtract it from the GVWR and figure out if you have enough carrying capacity.
