Plus, you don't have to drill a 4" hole in the side wall and pump your heat or AC outside like a vented model.

Earl, good points. However in your comment, the non-vented do not use cool air from your AC? Would you not agree that the vented supply heat during the cool days? Push - pull. I would in retrospect rather save on the purchase of propane (heating during cool days/nights). And allow the campground provide the electricity to run the AC.. NO?

Actually the vented pulls inside air whether AC or heated to the outside which forces outside air into the RV. So you're actually loosing heat to the outside as well. How much depends on how much cfm the dryer vents.

Drawing from/discharge to is the difference for the ventless vs vented..

I've never had an issue with cooling my RV. A 15k and a 13K is sufficent.

Using my furnance to heat requires propane, that I have to pay extra for.

The Bedroom with the door closed is 63 degrees. Running the dryer - the bedroom is 74 degrees.


My vented dryer adds heat to the RV. One just has to open the door..

Just a thought !!

Vented or ventless will both generate heat. They are dryers. lol

I have theSplendide WD2100XC Vented Washer and Dryer. Works great, you be doing smaller loads, some complain about wrinkles. By drying separate & not letting it just run the entire cycle they come out fine. Sheets the wife pulls just before dry & hangs on the extra shower curtain rod that lives above the shower. Move it to the center and hand over night to finish drying.
Oh if you decide on one of these PPL Motor Home https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/ has them just under $1,000 new. Free shipping when I got mine CW wants $1400.

Washer dryer combo

Being full time my wife was pretty adamant that we would have a washer dryer combo in our 5er. We have a magic chef 2.7 cu ft ventless combo.
Fits in our closet with little room to spare. Wife really likes it and yes it does take a longer for a load.
The bigger load size works better for us. The rig does shake a bit but sounds like that's pretty common with front loaders.
Word of caution. LG makes a 2.8 cu ft combo. Stay away (voice of experience) it's junk and LG can't fix them.
The Magic Chef was 699.00 at Walmart. Home Depot price matched and with a 3 year extended warranty we spent less than 1000.00 delivered

Hello guys, I ran a cross a EdgeStar non-vented washer and dryer on Offer-up today, they are selling it for $599.00 the lady said that they use it one time so it look like a pretty good deal, what do you guys say. One thing that I'm looking at that I don't have to drill a 4' hole in my 5th wheel but anyway give me your comments.

Looks like the edgestar is 2.0 cu.ft. not familiar with the brand. If your wife is OK with the load size it's not bad. If she want's a larger load check the magic chef at 2.7 cu.ft. it's around 800.00 or so

Looking at the ratings for Edgestar I would be skeptical. 35% are only 1 star.

JYco 383fkws &

We have a Jayco 383FKWS ready for deliver mid-April. We are having a dishwasher installed pre-delivery and am considering a stackable washer & dryer and really need some guidance on brand and is it doable or even recommended. Has anyone any experience they can share with me about this possibility?

We have the Splendide stackable's in our 377. It is a very tight fit at the top of the dryer and the sliding door getting it in but it works. I know the dryer has been shaken around during travel. The motor was replaced the first year on the dryer and now both the dryer (again) and the washer are squealing. Both are to be replaced under warranty next month. Our warranty expires in September. Whether its the stackable configuration or the rough ride or just got a set that are bad I don't know. We just added a Flexair pinbox to the mix so that might improve it some.

After warranty if it happens again I'll go with the all in one model.

Hey, thank you so much for your response to my washer/dryer question. The fit is a question also since we will have a king size bed. My concern with the all in one is the drying time required.

I bought a new Splendid washer/ dryer combo when I had our first fifth wheel.
I ended up selling it when we bought the 2nd fifth wheel.

If you really want to enjoy how your laundry is done, get the stackable units. The comboís are not that great........

Good luck
