Dishwasher For Rig?

Is it worth putting in a dishwasher?
What brand of washer and dryer has anyone found to be the best and should I go with ventless or have a vent installed?
Thanks Doug

Yes to all three. When its just me and my wife we use dishes and silverware. This is what Redwood installed in the kitchen island

as for clothes even if we are only going some place for 3 days we wash clothes in the RV and never remove them . It makes life easier when you don't have a mountain of clothes to wash after a weekend. WE have a washer and drier separate , Some RV need a stack units but defiantly separate , Vented is a MUST! It does take a little longer to dry because they are 120v driers but it does the job. ours came from Redwood with Splendide stackable units.

Totally agree with Mark on the "must have" & the brands of both.
The FP dishwasher was fantastic, very quiet & did a great job with minimal water. We had the stackable Splendid w/d, absolutely vented, that also did a great job. We had the combo w/d in the previous 5th wheel & although it did a good job 1 load was 1/2 a day getting done & the EVERYTHING came out wrinkled. Unless you look forward to sitting in a laundromat somewhere a couple hours once/twice a week get the appliances then put them in & go sit outdoors under awning while enjoying a cup of coffee or an adult beverage.
All the mentioned appliances the wife wanted in the modular home we purchased however it already had appliances do she'll have wear them out 1st.

Same here except the Dishwasher. With just two of us it only takes a few minutes to rinse off the dishes and put them away. Plus we value our Island storage space.
We're old school country folks who have never had a dishwasher other than us so it's nothing different for us without one.

If done properly it shouldn't be an issue.
I cut the hole & installed the combo in our previous 5er with never an issue with water leaks.
The factory installed the w/d in the RW with no issues on it either.

Most RV that have a 120 volt only residential style refrigerator also have a 12vdc to 120v inverter. the refrigerator 120VAC power comes out of the breaker to a inverter that has utility power sensing and once the utility power is off it turns on the inverter for just the refrigerator. You do need a 12 volt charge line from your truck to help keep the battery charging slow (You get about 5~10 amp hour charge from the truck) but your using about 30~40 amp hours when the refrigerator is running. So at some point your going to need a generator or a camp site to plug in. I have 2 Trojan T105 battery's and never have had any issue with the battery on a 10 hrs. drive. I don't think they could do 2 days back to back without a charge .

Rarely use Dishwasher

We rarely use the dishwasher. It takes a long time to wash, and doesn't hold much. Working together we can wash, dry and put away the dishes in about the same time as it would take to load it carefully arranging so everything fits.

We do not have a washer-dryer and haven't felt the need for the setup. doing a couple of towels at a time in a small capacity unit would extend laundry day. Once again, working together at a laundromat, we start several washers, then dryers, fold stack or hang. About two hours later, we're done.

yes to the dishwasher. I am a full time RVer. Splendide washer and dryer (separate) is what I have and am very pleased.
