Headingsouth is on a distinguished road
I would be very careful with the Splendide washer/dryer unit. I am still considering one for my new boat (Leopard 43 cat), but have had 2 bad experiences with the one in my motorhome. The first time, the washer filled up as if to rinse the clothes and suddenly stopped. Tried every possible switch, cycled thru various knobs and could not get the machine to drain. Eventually, I had to pop the door open and wound up with 5 gallons of water on the floor. The other, stranger event was when the unit was hooked up to City water, I did one load, and the unit must have cycled through rinse multiple times as I went on to overflow my gray water holding tank, which was at least 50 gallons. Obviously the concern here wouldn't be the waste, but using up all of your water. I guess you wouldn't use the W/D without a watermaker, but still very strange. It works just fine now with no repairs.
