Washer and Dryer Installation
« on: May 09, 2005, 03:25:33 PM »
Our Terry Quantum AX6 is equipped for a washer and dryer, and we plan to purchase one.  Should we get
vented or not vented?  There is a vent on the outside of the unit.  Any suggestions?  The Splendide seems to
have a corner on the market.

Thanks, Roberta

Roberta,

Go with the VENTED! Don't even consider the non-vented. The non-vented uses lots and lots of water to operate. We have a non-vented one and wouldn't get another one. But we wouldn't be without a washer and dryer.

My Intruder is also equipped for washer/dryer, however I do have a suggestion, Look at the capacity of both your hot water heater and the washer/dryer.  You may change your mind

Roberta,

There is no question...get  vented.  Don't even consider non vented because they are not as efficient and create problems with plumbing and their usage when the proper drain connections are not available.   Some RV manufacturers have even changed out non vented to vented for people who were disillusioned by the lack of efficiency of non vented.

Based on all reports we have heard, save yourself lots of grief.

Don't even consider a non-vented washer dryer unless you like grief.  The Vented is the only logical way to go.

Get vented.  In my 8 months of research this one one of the very few things that could not be debated both ways.

Smokey,

On the contrary, my friend - anything can be debated. I have a Kariba non-vented in my coach and love it! Granted, water use is greater during the dry cycle, but I prefer to line-dry my stuff outside anyway.

But knickers can get twisted!  At least that is what Tom says.   :D
