Our camper came with the hook ups. Wife wanted to buy a set but after discovery that we had to cut a hole in the wall I was not keen on that idea. She spoke to several friends who said the time to wash and dryer was very long. She decided she would rather use the campground laundry every 10 days or so for a couple of hours rather than wash in the camper several days.

Does that mean you'll be spending a lot of time in RV parks?

Mostly for now learning about boondocking and other options to use.
Want to thank all of you for your replies and suggestions.

I also use a Splindide 2100XC washer/drier combo. It has been working great and I sure don't miss going to the laundromat. You have to remember it isn't a full size washer and dryer. Check out their reviews on you tube by people that use them.

Just to add, no one who has a washer/dryer in an RV claims that it matches the performance of full size units. All I know is the wife loves it...she washes a load or two just about everyday. Put the clothes in and forget it. It does help to have Full hookups for obvious reasons(power, water and drainage) are important when using onboard units. I know two loads generally means a trip out to drain the tank!

I am not sure that's 100% true. The front load washer cleans better than most top load home washers. While the Splendide does smaller loads (by far) it cleans better than most any top load I have ever used. The nice part is that doing laundry in the RV is not a chore like going to a laundromat and waiting. You just load it and go back to doing what you were doing. Even load it up and leave. You can finish up when you return. It's just easy.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

I was referring more to the size of the load rather than washing ability of RV Models compared to home. I agree, the degree of cleanliness works for us!!!

Just curious, but those of you that have a Splindide 2100XC vented washer/drier combo, does anyone have any idea how much water this unit will use on an average wash load?

9-16 gallons depending upon using the pre-wash option (I think that's the difference) or not.

Thanks Bill, that's kinda what I figured, but thought I would check with users.
