I guess I am a slow learner.
When we first got this motorhome and I started using the washer/dryer combo. I didn’t tighten the screw on vent properly and got a small water leak, that I noticed right away. It screws on with a rubber o-ring.
Yesterday, I ran the carpet shampooer in the living room and went to grab a small fan that lives in the bedroom near the washer/dryer. Uh oh….the fan was wet!
I had been having a stiff neck all morning, and it was killing me by this time. I was just getting ready to lay down on a heating pad for my neck.
But no…..I had a very wet carpet because I didn’t quite get the valve screwed in quite tight enough. I had washed and rinsed one entire load. I don’t think all the water leaked out, but enough to soak the carpet around the washer.
So my heating pad had to wait.
I clean this little vent out every few loads and it’s kind of difficult to turn it to get it out. The last time, I decided to not tighten it back quite as tight. BIG MISTAKE! I tightened it plenty…but not as tight as I could. Lesson Learned.
I towel dried it as best as I could and left three fans running overnight. It appears to be mostly dry this morning.
Never did get the bedroom carpet shampooed….but it got a good rinsing.
