    October 11, 2019Greetings,

    We have started our research to become fulltimers. For all that have dishwashers in your RV, is it worth losing the space? Do they work effectively?

    My next question is washer/dryer. Which system is better washer/dryer combination or separ...  more

      DebbieT October 11, 2019 Hello!  I can highly recommend the separate stackable washer/dryer units.... we used a combination unit overseas, and they were a nightmare.  The separate ones work best for us.  We don't have a dishwasher, so can't address that - though I ...  more

      Patte M October 11, 2019 We have a Splendid combo.  I use for small loads, like doing whites and delicates.  It works great but I can see if you wanted to do larger loads it could be time-consuming. I usually take larger loads, (sheets, jeans and such) to a laundromat.

      Bill Joyce (and wife Diane Melde) October 11, 2019 Many with dishwashers add a water softener unit to keep the jets clean.  These are external units that look like huge water filters and run $200 to $300. We have the water softener, since Arizona and other places have hard water, but we do not have a...  more

        Beth Allen October 12, 2019 Did you add the dishwasher on your own after purchase?
    • Beth Allen
      Debbie Lockey October 11, 2019 No dishwasher here. But, I love my stackable washer and dryer! I wash everything except my king quilt and the quilted sofa covers. You do have to do smaller loads, but it's all good.

      Tony & Robin October 11, 2019 If you have the space and can handle the weight, stackables are better. If you get the all-in-one unit, be sure it is the vented model (we have the Splendide). As for the dishwasher, we installed the Vesta a few months ago and love it. Before...  more

        Beth Allen October 12, 2019 So you had your dishwasher installed after purchase.  Was it difficult?  How much space did you lose?
    • Beth Allen
      SouthParkSteve October 11, 2019 I actually use a Splendide combo washer/dryer at home, as my house is very small...and only has 1 closet...... You do have to do more frequent, smaller loads, and it can take 3-4 hours for a complete wash/dry cycle.  However, because you...  more

      Renee & Kevin October 11, 2019 We didn’t have one, bought it, installed it and hated it. We now do our dishes by hand and are very happy to do so. Our just wouldn’t dissolve the soap effectively and it was just a big pain in the neck.

      Tomcamper October 11, 2019 Washer/Dryer. Dishwasher, wow. You haven't left home yet. How many dishes and clothes are you bringing? Unless you are staying somewhere with full hookups a lot, that's a lot of gray water. Add the shower and sinks the campgrounds are going to love you. H...  more

      sailsam October 11, 2019 Laundry - I take it to the laundry facilities in almost every RV park we've been in during the last 2+ years and 17 states.  I meet MANY other RVrs that I'd not meet if I didn't go to the laundry facilities.  As for dishes, since there's only th...  more

      Jack & Cathy Johnson October 11, 2019 We have a dishwasher and stacked washer dryer. Love both! For me it’s like being in a small apartment. Just don’t use when we boondock..... but would not be without them both. The dishwasher keeps my kitchen always clean and when traveling I just pop a lo...  more

        Beth Allen October 12, 2019 Thanks for your input.  Was the dishwasher installed when you purchased the RV or did you add it later on?  What brand of w/d do you have and were they installed at purchase?
      • Beth Allen
        Jack & Cathy Johnson October 19, 2019 My hubby added a drawer Dishwasher in this rig but our other one came from factory with one. Other MH also had a combo also
        But this one has a stacked Whirlpool which I love.

      Glamping girl October 11, 2019 I really did NOT like my all in one. Yes it takes a long time, but worse than that, I never felt my clothes were clean.

      John David (US TOUR ONE) October 12, 2019 I have a washer/dryer combo and travel solo. I wouldn't dare use it boondocking as it consumes too much water. It DOES take a long time to do a very small load, like maybe, 2 pairs of jeans and two shirts when hooked-up, but, I still like having it. I ca...  more

      Dream Chasers October 12, 2019 We have a stackable washer/dryer and can't imagine full-timing without it.  I can wash 3 loads before emptying the grey tank.  Running the dryer while traveling (on the generator) is a good way to exercise the generator.  We also have a dis...  more

        Looking for a map/driving app that will provide us a "radius" map for both miles and hours.

      TheClearyClan October 12, 2019 We have neither the appliances or the space for them in our Class-C. My thoughts on the washer and dryer are if it's a combination then if the dryer breaks the washer is also broke. If they are a stacked arrangement then when one breaks you don't have to ...  more

      TheClearyClan October 12, 2019 For those of you who have a dishwasher, do the dishes travel better in the dishwasher or in the cabinets?

      Bounder Bound October 12, 2019 The stories are true about the combos! We now have stackables. The dryer is convection dryer and it doesn’t create any heat or humidity in the RV.

      Rick & Lil October 13, 2019 We are with "sailsam" in that she cooks & I wash.....usually. So, no dishwasher works OK for us (just 2 of us). As far as the washer dryer issue goes, we went with just washer. We found that some campground/resort washers laundry rooms leave a lot to be d...  more

      Peter and Veronica Scheers October 13, 2019 I haven’t tried separate. I was blessed with a combo in our Monaco. I find it works best for me with express wash and separate dry cycle. That way it doesn’t take so long. But if you’re full timing you really have all the time in the world. So what does i...  more

        Beth Allen October 18, 2019 Thanks for the "heads up",  It's gonna be my husband and me with two dogs so I just want a system that is trust worthy and works well.

      Rick & Lil October 18, 2019 LG. Reliable & very, very quiet. We had stacked residential units in our condo for 8 years & now this studio sized in the RV for 4 years. Absolutely no issues what so ever.
