To the OP, our central vacuum plugs in on the stairs. The bags attach in the basement on the wall under the stairs. Ours also had several bags in there. We learned the fiver must be plugged into shore power for the vacuum to run. There is no on/off button for the vacuum, it turns on by plugging the hose in, turns off by disconnecting the hose.

X2, of couse also a sabre!

I personally won't option another camper with one unless its free. It works good but id rather drag an electric cord around our 42' 5er than the hose. But we don't use all our closet and cabinet space like alot do. I think we used it twice all summer.
To each thier own!!!

I know what you are saying about that hose, I have to wrestle with it and my back is killing me by the time I finish my living room area. I saw an ad for the Dyson cordless vacuum earlier tonight. That looks like a great rv solution. I wonder how well it works and how light it is?

Opposite here- we have and like it. But we do have a lot of crap crammed in here! or depending on how you look at it.

I haven't found that the hose is terribly inconvenient but I never did find a way of bringing a decent vacuum with us.

Guess we are just different it that area. I would rather pull just one lightweight hose around than push a vacuum cleaner plus the cord around. And if you have to replug the cord to reach certain areas,that's another hassle.

If you do get one, let me know how well it works. I've been interested in those slim dyson's but I've been very Leary of spending 5-600 on a vacuum.

We have a Dyson animal for our house and love it. I'm leaning toward the Dyson and not the central vac

OK, I can't help myself, I have to ask:

What are you doing the other 65-115 days of the year? Are you dying or in stasis?

(I die a little every day!)
