Installing Splendide 2100XC in 2010 351 RLSA

HI Everyone,

Just bought a Splendid 2100XC and I am going to install myself. Not too worried with the install as the unit is pre-plumbed and wired for the washer/dryer combo. My concern is where to cut the hole for the dryer vent. As you may know the washer/dryer cabinet is in the door side front corner of the bedroom, as are all the unit from 2010, I believe. Where to cut that 4" hole. This makes me nervous!! Could you guy take a picture of where yours is, if installed? I have included a picture of the sidewall that Jayco sent me. Maybe indicate on that diagram?

I went with the ventless just for this reason.

I heard the ventless don't work very well drying the clothes, hence, the vented unit.

For me the biggest no no for the ventless model is that it uses water to dry.

Since I don't have acces to a well on my land and carry my water , it was a no brainer.

Mine dries really well, more often than not , 60 min is too much time

Well I guess it is irrelevant. You will like having a washer dryer. I'd start with a tiny pilot hole from the inside using the bit as a depth Guage and drill a series of tiny holes to make sure you can get the vent located properly.

Every RV board I've looked at. Without exception. Did a lot of research prior to the purchase. Too many too list. The only issue is drying time.

Which FW do you have? possible for you to post the picture of the exterior location of your vent?

Well mine works very well, as do all the units of people I spoke too. In any event you will enjoy having a washer dryer. It makes it that much nicer when camping.

Sorry, not trying to insult the ventless system. Just heard that it takes a long time to dry. I am a seasonal much of the time and pay my own electric at the park. Its quite pricey in NY. When I'm traveling, electric is a non issue as it is normally included in the nightly rates. matter a fact heading to Cape Cod on Sunday, really looking forward to that trip! No time to install the washer prior though.
