  • Dirt Devil Vacuum

    I have the central vac and the hose is making marks on my wall going up the steps and the rounded wall in the bedroom. It is really hard to stretch the hose and makes vacuuming harder. Has anyone had this problem?

    I think this is an SB floorplan problem. We have the conventional center hallway and the hose does not really hit the walls. My guess is that with a side opening between the living area and bedroom area, pulling the hose would make it touch the wall. Sorry no solution here. I know I have seen a cloth hose cover for stix and bricks systems...perhaps that might work? Don't know where you get them but its like a 10 ft sock that fits over the hose.

      Dirt Devil Vac

      We purchased the 40DB Mobile Suite on display at SOITC Rally last June that was customized with an office instead of double bunks. I have the same problem. Connection is inside the panel door by steps going up to bedroom. I have trouble getting the hose stretched enough but still it flip flops on side of cabinets. Would love to have an answer to this problems. We love our MS. This is our second. Very few problems. We have had some cold days and nights in the Hill Country near Kerrville, Tx One day high 16 and night 9 so it never got above freezing for about f48 hrs. We stayed toasty and warm. No drafts, cannot feel wind coming in side windows. Love the fire place.

        worthless vac

        we have the dirt devil on our 36tk3. it was on the suite when we bought it. DW used is once and said it was worthless because it would not pick up much, so it has been relegated to the basement. I have used it to clean the basement and the patio carpet we have laid out. I have to agree with her it doesnt pick up too much very easy . She always brings our riccar along from our stick built if we are gone very long. sje

          You can order an extension hose for the on board Dirt Devil Vacuum, and while it might not be the best vacuum in the world, just ordering a nice power head for it makes it seem so much better, and does a much better job also.

          The power head is not cheap, but is well worth the money in our estimation so we don't have to carry another vacuum cleaner.

          Happy RVing.

                Here's what we got - and it does a FANTASTIC job on pet hair and cat litter. Has the rotating brushes powered by air and the power cord. Only a tiny bit more time involved in hooking up the power, but what a difference over the rather pitiful Rug Rat. I do need to find a sock for my hose as well. Our S&B had a central vac, and over time it took the finish off a couple of places on the baseboards and the door trim. Don't want that to happen here. Obviously you'd have to wash the sock with every use, but not a deal killer... Better than messing up the wood on the rig! Some mentioned that the Dirt Devil doesn't have much pick up, so I'm guessing that the newer units have a stronger model than the older units might have had since ours seems to have plenty of pick up - even for cat litter.

                      we found a power head without the vacuum at a thrift store. i put a 25 foot cord on it and a foot switch. it works great.

                        Good for you!! I never find good stuff like that when I go to them. I find nice clothes (I like "experienced clothing" - they fit the same later as they did when I bought them), but never good thrifty things like that fix...!
