Thread: Dishwasher anyone?

    Dishwasher anyone?

    I have carpal tunnel syndrome and it's painful to wash dishes by hand. Has anyone looked into having a small RV dishwasher installed in their Solitude (like a Vesta brand, Edgestar dishwasher etc.) It looks like it would fit under the island sink if the drain pipes could be rearranged and the wood divider/shelf removed. The last two RVs I owned had dishwashers already installed. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!!

    I thought one would fit also. We asked our dealer and he wasn't sure. In my dealer's defense, we purchased only the second Grand Design RV that has been on their lot, so they were just learning about the "new" RV manufacturer also! (this was over a year ago)

    Rick, this could be a good question to ask in the Tech section which is monitored closely by the Grand Design staff especially if you don't hear from someone who as already checked into this or has installed one. Let us know what you find out!

    I saw a 369 with a dishwasher installed under the counter in the lower cupboard area just to the right, straight as you walk in the entry. It looked nice. It was done at Paul Everts in Fife, Wa.

    Thanks Andy and Julie for the info. I have emailed Paul Everts and waiting for response. I can't imagine how they accessed a hot water line and drain line in that cabinet.

    Hi Rick (@remdenver),

    Our 2015 Solitude 369RL has an option for a dishwasher. This was most likely what was seen at Paul Evert's RV.

    Hi Janice,

    Thanks for your response about the 2015 model having a dishwasher option. Unfortunately I recently bought a 2014. Can my dealer do this install or do I have to bring it to you the manufacturer ?

    Hi Rick (@remdenver),

    This would require replacement of the entire island, including the countertop, which would be very costly.

    Janice, are all 2015's capable of dishwasher install? I'm looking at a 2015 379. Is there a build after date I need to know?

    Hi Janice...I was talking about installing it in the cabinet across from the island not in the island itself. isn't that the cabinet that you install the dishwasher in the 2015 models?

    The dishwasher option would go into the island where there are water and drain hook ups.
