Looking at a washer/dryer combo (24").

I have read a ton on these and understand how small they are, how you can only load 1/2 way etc... What is the general consensus about the brands available? Splendide, LG and Equator seem to make decent models.

Any opinions about which to get? I am also thinking about how to avoid leaks with whatever unit I get.

I think Splendide is by far the most common unit. And well liked. We have had our Splendide combo 13 years and still works fine. But we are not full timers.

I have use mine full-time for 16 years and just love it. I would not be without it. It is so convenient. My neighbors are always running to the laundromat while I sit outside drinking coffee and visiting. It is one of the best thanks I have in my motorhome.

One of the features we wanted in our new 5’er was the washer/dryer. The camper was delivered pre-wired and plumbed for a ventless washer dryer in the forward bedroom wardrobe. It takes up about a third of the space, but well worth it.

Right, small loads and it’s programmable to wash then dry over a several hour cycle. Ours is ventless so it drys using steam heat. Clothes come out clean but a little damp. A short time on a folding rack and they’re ready for the drawer.

It’s very convenient since our winter runaway RV park in NV has closed the clubhouse due to the virus and takes in laundry by appointment. Otherwise it’s a laundromat in town.

Downside is power usage. Our metered electric bill for a chilly November, running propane furnace, electric fireplace and washer/dryer, came to about $75. Well worth it for us.

The dealer ordered one of these and installed it:

For a family of 4, we had a vented Splendide for 4 years and absolutely love it. Loads are small- just a couple of pants and a shirt or two for adults. I actually liked the small loads because I didn't feel like laundry was work.

Plus, the fact that it's an all-in-one, we would commonly throw laundry in at night and it would come out clean and dry in the morning. Even better, we switched rigs and the washing machine as in the kid's room. One of my daughter's jobs was to fold laundry - so it would show up in the morning, clean, dry, and folded!

Most complaints that you'll see about these are those with the non-vented units. I wouldn't have one of those.

if you are saying so then we should check for it.

Splendide vented about 3 year for two, laundry every 2 or 3 days evening while watching TV or reading. Bedding gets done over the weekend.

my buddy has had one for about 15 year, LG I believe they love it. different style of laundry they would do a load every night or two instead of once a week having a laundry day. I believe theres is non vented but I could be wrong. it condenses all the moisure and pumps it out the hose to the drain, is this non vented?

In the ballpark of 12-15 gallons per load.
