I don't have on but I bet it would work fine if you didn't fill the gray tank or run out of water. How much water do you use for a load?

Should be OK.

But my thoughts. Mechanical device bouncing down the road with a load of water and clothes? Probably not designed for that environment. Long gen run times unless you have an inverter in which case more alternator output required. Uses a lot of water. Is someone going to be checking it while moving?

I didn't post in the other thread but I would not hesitate.
And I'd run if off an inverter to do so.

I have two rigs with washer and dryer.

I found them fairly useless unless I had full hookups. The water and waste tankage were a severe limitation. Doing a modest amount of laundry DOUBLED our water consumption.

I do a lot of boondocking. That makes the frugal consumption of water and power is necessary. So, laundry in the RV is not very practical for me.

Just my $0.02 [emoticon]

No reason not to, especially if you are going from CG to CG, even with small tanks. Uses 20 gallons and a out of balance load on the spin cycle will put more force on it than any bump.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

The Splendide washer can use as little as 9 gallons for a wash. If you add extended wash or rinse cycles it can use up to 16. We have almost never used either of these so the wash cycle is not a big water user.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
