If you use your on-board water/holding tank, you won't be using the washer very long I don't think.

Typically, you will want to be in a "full hookup" site (electricity/water/sewer) to use the washer.

The only thing that works on a RV is the owner...

You absolutely can use your washer/dryer while not connected to city water.

They are designed as "efficient" washers that use very little water, (about 5 gallons per load). If your have 80-100 gallon fresh water tanks, that's a lot of loads.

The combo washer/dryer units actually use more water per load. They use cold water to condense steam during the dry cycle, so they use more water.

If you are in a motorhome that was factory plumbed for a washer/dryer, you very likely are carrying plenty of water for a load or two without any concern.
