After seeing a woman load 2 washers and looked like she had a brown accident in her pants at a laundromat we did the vented combo in the last 5er. Small loads took too long. Now we have the Ariston separates ~~ so much better. We often go for 3 weeks to 3 months. Never using a laundromat again.

We went from van conversions to travel trailers because DW did not like using public showers.
Went to a 5th wheel so she has her own washer dryer.

We had our first failure of our Splendide Combo since we purchased it in 2006 .Control board failed. We are long timers and use the splendide a lot. It was a learning experience as to size of loads , etc. It is a huge convenience yes it does smaller loads and takes a while to complete the entire cycle but who is in a hurry. Would not buy one if we were low end users. The laundry facility at our winter home in Florida is clean well kept and we use that for large items.It takes a least 1 1/2 hours to do a complete wash / dry cycle in the splendide. Their customer service and technical support is awesome. We have visited the plant in Elkhart.

My wife and I are trying to decide whether to get a Splendide combo ventless or vented. Which one do you think is the best? I am leaning toward the vented, but I do not want to put another hole in my Montana.

Thank you for your input!!

The combo is not that great but if stuck with it go vented. I'd go to a laundromat in a ghetto at 3AM before another unvented combo.

Vented or Unvented

Vented. You don't want all of that lint activating your allergies. And if you do any winter camping and run your furnace any you will accumulate moister inside the camper from the heat against the cold walls and windows. Blowing more moist air into the RV from the dryer is a recepie for a lot of moisture problems. If the dryer vent is properly installed and sealed, you'll have no problems with it. Just consult your dealer before you drill the hole. I had a friend who drilled where the sign said "drill here for dryer vent" and hit a stud.

2018 High Country 345rl. We have the separate washer and dryer up in the front closet. Really like it so far. The washer shakes the whole rig a little when spinning. That's to be expected I suppose.

We just put our clothes in a pillow case & walk over to the laundry mat at the rv park. Thereís a spot for washer & dryer in closet but for me to walk over to laundry area is easy. It would be nice if I had more room in my 5th wheel. But thatís life...

Just installed an Electrolux washer. As we dry camp 99% of the time we did not install a dryer. The washer works off of our inverter and the rinse water goes into our blueboy.
