No doubt, and I am a fan of that

Yep, feels like the coach is going to go into orbit during the spin cycle. I've never seen a washer spin so fast, the clothes are well on the way to drying!!!

that vibration worries me. It just cannot be good for the integrity of the slide to have that washer make so much vibration.I think we will get some of those slides supports for that slide.the Redwood owners manual actually recommend using slide supports. The factory rep denied it. But the manual says that slide support are beneficial for long term parking.

On the FB the W/D is not in a slide, it's between the bedroom and shower on the door side of the coach.

Slide supports have to be monitored very closely --- you would not want 16k lbs bearing down on the slide support or hanging from the slide mechanism...

personally, I wouldn't use them - just my humble opinion...

THAT is a very good point! I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for pointing it out.

We have the Ariston washer and dryer in our GK and we love it. We had the single combo unit in our Open Range and it was ok but left a lot of wrinkles. If coach is level there is minimal vibration when spinning. And the vent does not bother you while dryer is running and you are under the awning. Matter of fact smells good to me.

Fredtp, Our new washer lights up and the tub filled with water the door is locked. We can't get it to spin out or drain the water. The display shows .02 seconds left. We can't open the door because of water inside and the door is locked. Do you know how to get it to spin or drain?
