They have the ability to lift wheels of RV off the ground but not recommended by all those that have experienced sticking doors and possible cause of cracked windshields. RVDreamer is right in that they can stablize but they can improve level too.

So they are just to take up suspension travel? Thanks for the info. I have a build sheet from the factory and they are listed as leveling jacks. Gary

Never had any issues with anything sticking or buckling on my 92 36' LY. I keep mine up on the jacks all winter long. All but the TAG axle wheels are still on the ground but there is a definite height change. Mine has the HWH 610 automatic jack system and HWH has no issues with using them as fully leveling.

Selling newish 2015 23' Flying Cloud.......

My wife and I've taken a position overseas and have to sell our 6 month old A/S. It's currently in Montana, here's the questions.....should I take it south to sell, say AZ or Ca. since the market is so small here and the weather is.......cold. And or what would be a fair price for a twice used unit?

Thanks!

We are looking to get a 2005 Land Yacht 30' Motorhome. Has anyone ever installed a Washer/Dryer combo in a 30' LY? It looks like it could be hidden in the wardrobe area. If so, how could it be vented outside?
Thanks for any advice.

Sakiracers -- I would suggest living with the rig awhile before considering a washer/dryer. I think you might find that the storage space is more valuable than the washer/dryer. Weight is also a consideration.

Congratulations on the Land Yacht. We really enjoy ours!

Sam

What you are looking for might not be found as the 30 was designed. The amount of weight you are thinking of placing in the closet. It is not built for it. Previous owner of mine had gkid that thought it would be a good idea to hide in closet, managed to collapse floor. Shower and head have fans and direct exhaust so you are thinking right that moisture would be a problem. Only easy thing about it would be hotwater tank is located below it, however unless it has the optional 50 amp service to the rig, the electric supply would be a problem, as would amount of hotwater if you looked at the small tank. New rules in most places, grey water must be contained, so you either have to be connected to sewage line or limited to small amount to be washed. Any cg that has sewers on sites generally has a laundry room with washers and dryers.

We have had washer/dryers (had the small all in one machine) in previous rigs, and enjoyed having it. However we didn't put one in the landyacht - just really not enough room. If you are going to be out in it long enough to really need the washer, you won't have enough space for the clothes!
We came to land cruising after a few years of sea cruising. Marina and shore-side laundries can be nasty. But in our experience, campground laundries are quite nice, or if not, you can usually find one in a nearby town. I have met a few couples where the husband does the laundry run! So that could be food for thought
As for the logistics, I am sure if you are determined enough, you can shore up the floor etc., but the weight going down the road? Not so sure about that. Also, some campgrounds don't allow individual washer/dryers as their sewer systems can't handle it.
As Airstream 12557 suggested, try living with the unit a while first and see how it goes.

Good choice, best idea to hang around a couple of days, only the po will be able to give you a quick answer when you find a minor problem or question after purchase.
1800 miles first trip takes a lot of courage, but will be less stressful with a tow policy in place and tools for all minor adjustmemts.

Did you check the age of the tires? Michelin gives them 8 yrs, I had problems trying to get a few extra years when thread looked like new.
Have owner show you where the spare can be cranked down.
Good luck on your adventure, don't forget to use the cruise control, if it is running quiet and smooth, it is easy to go over the speed limit
