When we pack to travel we carry about a weeks worth of cloths plus a change of wardrobe from one season to the next. We often travel in the fall and go from the warm south to the colder north and feel that we could reduce our packed clothing if we could wash as needed.
Because we will need to provide a drain our first thought was either in the kitchen under the sink or in the bathroom in place of the existing sink.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
First, a disclaimer. We are going to put a washer/dryer single unit in our 2002 HR Admiral so Iíve done some research on these. However Iím a first time 2 year owner so Iím sure there are more experienced voices here, but Iíll share what Iíve learned.
Our 36DBD came with a WD rough in as an option, bot I donít believe a WD was ever installed. The rough in includes elec. with circuit breaker installed and a GFI plug. Plumbing includdd 10 gal. W heater, so Iím pretty well set coachwise.
Quite a few purchase options for these WD combos exist, but the big
one for us is venting. Most of these unit are listed as ventless, evev the $2000 plus machines,meaning they use a condenser to cool the vapor and send it down the drain. However this makes the cycle time too long for many people, including us. But they all seem to have small capacities.
So we found a unit that u can use both ways, vent and ventless, and Iím ordering today. It even has a winterize setting for RV owners. Also is one of the less expensive models.
Hopefully this helps. Good luck.
