The Splendide 2000 washer/dryer that came with our RV finally gave up the ghost last summer.
We didn’t use it much, but occasionally the little washer/dryer came in handy . . . if you didn’t mind incredibly small loads — a towel or two or several pairs of socks. Not much more, really.
I used it in cold weather to warm up my shower towel. Very nice.
The Splendide was at least as old as our RV (~ 15 years old), so it certainly came as no surprise when the tiny washer/dryer stopped working.
Well, it worked, but not automatically — you had to be around to manually advance the washer controller through each cycle. Also, the Spendide had the bad habit of just stopping with a full load of water.
It was time to retire the washer/dryer.
However, it took me several months to work up the gumption to take it out of our RV. My main de-motivator was the Splendide’s weight — about 300 pounds. I didn’t know how I’d wrestle it out of the RV, and I certainly couldn’t lift it.
Solution: De-construction. I took it apart.
But after a few hours . . .
