I would like to hear from all the people who have a Splendide washing machine in your motorhome or 5th wheel. Like to know what problems you have had over the years and how long in years has it been in service. Would be nice to know the cycle life as well or number of washing per trip. Some people travel a lot and others only travel couple weeks out of the year. More use adds more cycle life on machine. The TX door lock is used in this machine and all people we have talked to, this has been the item that stops working.

I have a Splendide 2000 in my 5th wheel which I live in full time. I love it and have had no issues with it...other than it certainly does shake a lot on the spin cycle. It is mounted on a set of cabinets and then held in place with a super bungie. I worry that with all the shaking that bungie is going to get loose and I can just see the unit falling out of the cabinet while we are running down the road. This is the first washer/dryer I have had in an RV and I do get a lot of use out of it. However, I agree with a previous poster, the drum size is small and things to tend to wrinkle so I use it mostly for small loads of personal items and do the main loads in the park laundromats.

When this machine dies (or I win the lottery) I am going to replace it with one of the new units with bigger capacities and more features (and hopefully less shaking). Or I will rip out the cabinets and just put in a stackable unit. Either way, I get so much use out of mine, that I do not want to have any other RV in the future without a washer/dryer.
