Usually in the bottom step going to bedroom. Not sure if the same on your model.

If you have one as in the picture above, then the unit itself should be right behind the plug in for the hose with the place to change the bags showing on the basement wall. Mine is red.

Most are clearly marked, but yours may be behind a movable panel. Did you get the hose and accessories? Those have a tough time hiding.

If and when you find it,check the vacuum itself - we used ours a week before deciding to check the bag. I found the unopened pack of new bags in the vacuum,but none were installed.

Don't worry. Been living 250 to 300 days/yr since 2008. Find out something new every week it seems. Lots of good helpful info out there.

So on this topic, is the central vacuum worth it? We think we have finally decided on the Sandpiper 35ROK, and are refining the list of options. My opinion was for the $300ish they want for it, I can by a really nice Dyson. Opinions from those that have this option?

Our Crusader came with one - very handy and does not take up closet space

The tools are stored in the ottoman for the sofa !

Our Silverback 29 RK came up one. It's very handy and can also be used to vacuum out the basement and other compartments. We stored the hose and attachments in a space above the television with no problem.

As said before, no need to carry one and get it out when needed.

We did bring our home vacuum to the RV when we returned home and used it,but really didn't notice any difference from the central one in the RV.
