Vacuum question

My Sanibel 5th wheel has the on board vacuum cleaner which included the hose and a bag of accessories. However, there is no hard tube extensions for the hose like our shop vacs at home come with. Consequently when I want to vacuum the carpet and floors I have to lean waaaay over or get on my knees. Am I missing some accessories or did everybody else s vacuums come this way?

I think (pretty positive) you're missing the extendable tube. Ours came with the mesh bag, large floor tool, round brush, crevice tool, upholstery tool, long flexible hose and an adjustable tube.

The tube is collapsible and would have fit in the bag.

And ours did also plus 3 new bags. None of the bags were installed,but were in the vacuum compartment.

We didn't find this out until I checked to see if the bag(that I thought and assumed was installed) needed changing.
