My Experiences with a Splendide 2000
(On the road)
One of the selling features of our motor home was that it had a washer/dryer combo. The Splendide works well, but because of the poor quality of water in some parks, has needed a couple of repairs over the past five years. We bought our motor home used, but I don't think any of the appliances had been used, so it was like new. The washer/dryer came pre-installed and sits in a cabinet between the kitchen and bathroom.
It's great having a washer/dryer at hand. However, the capacity is small, so we have to do several small loads rather than one or two large ones. Another problem for us is that our motor home is only 30amp, so we don't use the air conditioners while doing laundry (dryer only).
During the past year, our washer/dryer needed a new water pump and we considered not fixing it and converting the cabinet to storage. For the entire year, I hauled our laundry to the park laundromat on a weekly basis. I enjoyed the quiet time without tv, and the ability to read uninterrupted for a whole hour and a half. But, some of the park laundries were not places I wanted to spend time, so after a year of this we replaced the water pump and use the combo almost exclusively.
It does a good job, and I like having it here. We'll keep the Splendide here in the coach and continue to use it regularly.
