Trying to read that, last section, I think I have gone blind but thanks for the attempt.
A simple Yes or No would have been fine.

We picked up a GE washer and dryer from Home Depot 4 years ago, living aboard full time we use them every week and have worked fine for us. We replaced a stackable unit that was onboard Click image for larger version

Nice units. Likely to fit in my condominium when current units need replacement.

I had a vented Splendide installed last month, and it has performed much better than I expected. As long as I donít overload it, and keep time expectations reasonable, it is perfect. Sheets and cotton shirts have to be pressed, but they do with a normal washer/dryer.
Best,
Maldwin

Washer honey do

My charming wife wants the vented Splendide taken from the RV and put in boat. Only weighs 150 pounds! Will actually go thru starboard door and down to the master closet. There are water inlets and I need to discover the drain and vent arrangements. I think since there are hose bibs, the drain is in floor into engine space. I donít want the moisture just venting into engine space. :
If you have some spare time, come by and either laugh or help, whichever seems best to you

Confused as to your drain arrangements. If by into the engine room you mean into the bilge then not a good idea. 11 gallons of soapy water will create a mess and stink. Needs to be plumbed overboard above the water line.

I've used asko at home for ever, 16 years or so, the boat also has asko washer dryer, 20 year old, used a lot. Uses little water, spins fast so dryer time is shorter and quite small. Can't say if the brand new models are as good as things change not always for the better

I simply popped a hole in the hull and set up a proper vent for our Spendide.

Uh, yeah. A bit unclear. I left out the details, but venting air out side of engine room and putting water out thru-hull is plan. I think we will not use it much, but when you need it, you need it.

We are Galveston Island boaters. Yeah, yeah, but still have a house and work schedule that allows the 1.5 hour trip from NE Houston. Commute would be more like 3 Hours up in morning.

We installed a vented Spledide in a previous boat. Worked very well. Put thru hull in side of boat above waterline for water drain. Put a large S/S clamshell over the 4Ē air vent facing aft and down to keep water out of the vent hose. We used it a lot.
