Washer/Dryer Combo units

Its been almost a full year since we purchased our current fifth wheel RV which we plan to start fulltiming in. DW really doesn't like laundry mats (I really don't blame her for that) so I had the dealership install a Splendide combo in our rig. She hasn't been very pleased with the results as everything comes out wrinkled even to the point of getting rid of the Splendide and recovering a closet.
Now I'm certainly not going to pretend to know much about laundry so I would like to hear any input from other users out there and what they have done to overcome this issue.

This something I never thought we would do, but here's our laundry story. We spent last summer in Ruidoso, NM. We don't have a w/d in out rv and there wasn't one where stayed. We hate going to laundry mats, but no other options. We went to a nice big laundry mat, where they also did the laundry for a price. When we deducted the cost of machines from having it done for us, cost us about $5 more a week. They cloths where clean, smelled good and folded. Cost was about $17/wk.

Is your combo dryer vented. We have the non vented combo splendid and the DW removes the cloths while still damp to reduce wrinkling

The combo units should come standard with an iron & ironing board. We had the same unit & about the only good thing I could say about it is we didn't have to go to the laundromat. We have the stacked Splendides now & they are great.

we have a residential whirlpool stackable washer / dryer in the motor coach. The wife is quite happy with the dryer, as laundry is not wrinkled when dryer is done.

I have a splendide washer dryer combo been using it for 3 year. My suggestion
You have to many clothes in 1 load. 5lbs of dry clothes
Use (he) soap and maybe 2 table spoons. A bit of liquid fabric softener. NO Bounce sheets.
Set dry time 20 mins. Remove clothes shake out if necessary then 20 more mins till dry.
Jeans take 60 min
Give it a try.
