Washer Dryer combos

Would like to hear what everyone is using for a washer dryer combo in their Jayco Seneca, vented or non-vented and performance

I have the vented Splendide in my 2014 TS and we love it. Installed it myself in 2016. The drain and water lines are pre-plumbed but one has to do the vent themselves. But my rig did have a sticker in the compartment locating where the vent should be placed.

Obviously one can't wash huge loads and since the drying is only 120-volts, it does take longer. But we like the convenience of starting a load, heading out for our daytime adventures, and coming back to clean, dry laundry.

One trick we discovered was spiked rubber dryer balls. They "break up" the clothes and greatly reduce wrinkles. Can't use the wool ones we have at home since they have to go through both wash and dry cycles.

I have a Splendid combo unit that vents to the plumbing drain, no hole to cut in the side. It works good as long as you don’t expect it to work like two separate units. I don’t know why the above response indicates they vented their combo out the wall as I think I have the same unit and one only needs to vent into the drain pipe.

Spendid sells both vented and non-vented models.

We have a Splendide vented combo. Itís not that big of deal to put a vent in the wall. Our last trip was almost 2 months and we used it a lot and would hate to be without it. Our friends we camp with have a non-vented and they hate it, one trip we ran a test and theirs took almost twice as long to dry.

I have had combo units and stackable. Combo units take forever to wash and dry. I prefer stackable if you have the space.

So where did you get those from and do they work well?

From our local Menards home improvement store.

https://www.menards.com/main/grocery...4433434524.htm

Also see them on Amazon:

They definitely help! We use 4 in a load. Also like Splendide recommends we always use fabric softener to help the load "release" from the drum after the final rinse spin.
