Washer/Dryer Combo Install Questions

I have questions about installing a Splendidie 2100XC combo unit into a 2020 32rlts Pinnacle 5th wheel. I have never looked closely at a unit that was professionally installed. I'd like to do it right. Any regrets, mistakes, tips or comments are welcome!

I see many install them without a drip pan. I think it would be a good idea to have one. If using one, a hole for the drain is needed. I hate the idea of drilling blindly into the floor, where is the best location? Does the washer still need the foot mounting brackets that screw to the floor if it's sitting in a drip pan?

Next is the orientation of the washer. Water hookups are in the right side wall in the front bedroom closet, I need to remove a shelf. Does the WASHER DOOR usually face the REAR of the 5th wheel or does the REAR of the WASHER face the wall with water hookups? Is there any advantage to either direction?

Lastly, there is no sticker to mark the dryer vent hole location. Anyone have measurements??

If you can wait until in the morning I will see what I can do for you. Our 2020 32RLTS has the same washer but it was installed by my dealer. The door does face the rear which I would think is the only way it would work. They used a couple of L brackets to secure it to the floor but no drip pan. It fits pretty tight so I'm not sure you could get a drip pan in there and then be able to secure the washer to the floor.

You can use a drip and not use the drain. That's what I did. The pan will hold water and hopefully you will notice it before the pan overflows. Provided it's not a huge sudden leak. Be sure to install the travel lock kit to hold it in place. It installs down through the pan. So you will want to use sealer and on the screw threads. I installed the same unit but the non-vented version. They make two different pans, so be sure to order the correct one. The pan for my unit has a detachable front lip to allow you to slide the washer into the pan. Also to give access to the drain strainer screen.

I'm also thinking a drain for the drip pan wouldn't be needed. If a leak does occur I'd notice it in the pan before any major water damage.
Thinking of this drip tray-
https://www.homedepot.com/p/MUSTEE-D...r-95/303880290
Should fit my opening and I should have 3-3/4" extra room to get the foot mount brackets inside it and have access to the pump screen.

Does the carpet have to be removed before the drip pan is installed?

Now trying to figure out exhaust duct routing and if anything needs to be removed to get it into the 5er....

Used the Splendide drain pan that my combo unit called for.

My compartment had a bare wood floor up off the subfloor. Not sure if I'd remove the carpet or not. Since there is carpet, I assume it's sitting directly on the subfloor. So if you decide to remove the unit to use for storage, you'd have bare subfloor showing. If that's the case, I'd leave the carpet.

Jim, I'd really appreciate a pic or 2 of your install or some measurements of the exterior vent hole location. Especially interested in how the dryer vent duct is ran, and the location of the exterior vent hole. I'm guessing the duct needs to go over the top of the washer?
Thanks!

The vent hole is centered 35 inches from the floor and 8 1/2 inches from the rear wall.
