How To Select Best RV Dishwasher For Your Motorhome

What Is An RV Dishwasher?

A dishwasher is a luxury item in a home and even something special when it comes to an RV.  RV dishwashers will do the work of cleaning the dishes for you which leaves more time to relax in nature and hit the trails. Having a dishwasher in your RV is not always a must-have; however, it’s a convenient time-saver. When compared to hand-washing, these dishwashers can save water as well, depending on your washing style.

Most RVs do not come with RV dishwashers and are typically only found in higher-end RVs. These machines use quite a bit of power and water and therefore are not typically suitable for boondocking without hookups. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider purchasing one! When not in use, they can also double as a great storage location.

Types of RV Dishwashers

There are three major types of RV dishwashers used by RV users. Installation varies depending on the model.

A Slimline, Or Narrow Dishwasher

A slimline, or narrow dishwasher, is most similar to your washer at home. They can be built directly into your cabinetry to save counter space. Slimline dishwashers are compact, but also have the capacity for a larger load.

Narrow, Built-In Dishwasher

Narrow, built-in dishwashers consume a lot more water than other types. However, they are quieter than countertop dishwashers, allowing for a better RV ambiance. Professional installation is recommended for a narrow dishwasher because these are designed to be tapped into your plumbing system. (more…)
