doesn't a "ventless" dryer add a lot of humidity to the cabin? Isn't that a "bad thing"?

Hi,

Having had four different dryers and combos in my scuba diving shop I can explain some different.

First off here in Norway we have all big brands but don´t remember brand name on them.

The "ventless" combo, uses water as somebody explain beforehand for drying and very little heat and absolutely no humidity in the room.

The "normal" combo, uses air to dry and gives very much heat but little humidity do to the fact that they have plates that the collect water.

In my experience the "ventless" combo give much dryer clothes and also dry at lower temperatures for the clothes.

For both types the max washing was 6 kg (dry clothes) and drying 3-4 kg.

As to water and power consumptions as I said this was at work and never a problem.

Erik

I think you need to rethink the choice for a condensing (non-vented) dryer combo. These things use water while drying and this in such quantities that you can basically only use it while docked with shore water supply.

For this reason, we had to replace our splendide with the vented model. It had water running for the complete dry-cycle.

cheers,
Nick.

Thanks,

We now have the splendide "vented" combo and although it's build quality is so-so, it performs okay enough. Just put the vent out a hatch or porthole. We normally air dry and only use the dryer in the rainy season.

cheers,
Nick.

I've had both the non-vented and vented Splendides. The dryer on the non-vented one was pretty much worthless. A single pair of jeans would just not dry even after many hours. I am using the vented one now and it works pretty well. It drys slowly but it does get the job done. One pair of jeans and a couple of shirts will dry in one cycle, 120 min. It is permanently vented through a mushroom vent in the deck.

I've heard of owners who run the Splendide washer off the inverter on a regular basis. But not the dryer.

The washer is almost always on the inverter. It uses 4-8 amps @ 120V. The 8 amps only during the spin cycle. The dryer program takes 10-13 amps and this too much for the batteries as the draw lasts 45-120 minutes.

ciao!
Nick.

I have found the same thing. I usually run the generator to run the drying cycle. I have a 2500W inverter which will run the wash cycle but the battery life is pretty short when you start demanding 15 amp on your ac system. When you have to draw close to 140amps from your dc system the batteries get to the shut down point on the inverter really fast.

"The "normal" combo, uses air to dry and gives very much heat but little humidity do to the fact that they have plates that the collect water." So, just to be clear, does it drastically heat up the interior of the boat? In the winter this wouldn't be a bad thing, but in the summer I don't want additional heat inside my boat. thanks.
