12 volt/battery powered car vacuum

I would like to purchase a 12 volt car vacuum that has some suction and will pick up dirt. I do not want one that has to be plugged into 120 volt. If it is battery powered I want to be able to plug it into a 12 volt outlet. I found a Dewalt but by the time you purchase the vacuum, the battery, and the charger you have over 200 dollars invested....I want to be able to vacuum out the dirt/sand when we are camped. I want some that will work and not something that is cute. The Dirt Buster etc. just does not do the job. A google search brings up lots of vacuums but most are only practical for flat open floor....not the nooks and crannies of a truck cab.....

What central vacuum bag fits my Montana?

I have a 2007 Montana that has the original vacuum bag in it. There is no model # on the unit but I looked online and it is the typical model shown and has one hole to plug in the hose. The bag has no number on it but I have narrowed it down to needing a Y10 or Y11. I don't know if that's right or not but still don't know which would fit. Help please. I've been all over the internet trying to figure it out.

1988 gulf stream 460 Ford motor vacuum lines

I am sorry if I am not posting this in the right forum. I have a 1988 gulf stream with the John Deere chassis and a Ford 460 motor. I need the diagram for the vacuum lines. Some are not connected and some are rotten and needs replaced. I am planning on replacing them all. Thank in advance for any help anyone can give me.

1993 Ford E350 vacuum and A/C question

Haven't been on here much lately - too many other things going on...but, we took the RV out last week for the first time in a year and had a great, rather uneventful trip - except for no cabin A/C. Not a huge deal, but I'm in the midst of fixing it right now. The system was EMPTY - so I tried to draw a vacuum, just to see what I had. I really think the problem had to do with the schrader valves, but I'm not sure. I pressurized the system with compressed air (yes, I know nitrogen is better and I know about the moisture issue - I used a filter and I knew I was changing out the drier - at least - when I was done anyway. Didn't find any huge leaks after spraying around and the vacuum got down to 29" or so and when turned off, held steady for more than 10 minutes. Pulled the orifice tube today and it was covered in really fine, almost dust like metallic particles (they were attracted to a magnet)- pretty clogged up. I'm assuming my FX15 compressor has died - I have a new one (FX10) coming tomorrow, as well as a new condenser. My question is should I replace the evaporator as well? And how concerned should I be about the hoses? I see no signs of oil/leaks and I am having an impossible time finding any replacements for this van chassis...the line from the compressor to the condenser has a muffler installed in it and I've read that you can't really flush those. But, if I get the hose out to where I can turn it upside down, do you think I can run some flush through it? I am planning on flushing the evap and all the hoses - installing new compressor, condenser, drier and orifice tube and going back with R12. One other question - in taking the drier off the passenger wall, I had to remove the vacuum reservoir. I noticed that nothing was hooked up to it - no hoses running to or fro..? Been like this since I've had the coach (6 years) - should I be concerned about this? Any other advice/ideas? Thanks, Ryan

Dometic/Sealand vacuum toilet problem

While de-winterizing our 2011 Bounder Classic 36R, our vacuum toilet would not work. Neither the green or red light on the panel would turn on when turning on the power switch for it. Questions I have are, where is it powered from? Where is the fuse, and last where is the vacuum pump located at? Is it enclosed by the sheet metal channel running along the upper side of the storage bins in the rear drivers side? Any help is truly appreciated. Thank You

Small; vacuum cleaner ?

I'm looking for the smallest, but most powerful 120 volt vacuum cleaner that I can get to keep in our trailer. What have you got and would you replace it with the same ? I am not interested in a 12 volt one Jack L

Preventing issues with vacuum toilet system

After talking to a fellow full timer the other day, he mentioned that he had a calcium build up (apparently from water used at several campgrounds over time) on his toilet "ball valve". We have a 2016 Bounder with the Dometic/Sealand vacuum toilet system, and I am wondering if CLR would be ok to use to help prevent this build up. Of course not to be used after/with each flush, but periodically.

Dometic Sealand vacuum toilet

We have purchased a 2016 Bounder 35k with the bath and a half. We also have the Dometic/Sealand vacuum toilet system which makes such a racket that it can be heard (when recharging) no less than 100 feet away. When we get new neighbors and have to use the leu, boy the looks our rig gets.......... We have been told "this is normal in some MHs, is this right?, I do not hear anyone else's. Suggestions????? Thoughts?????? It works fine, just so darned LOUD.

Using a vacuum guage and gear selection towing for best MPG?

I tow a 2014 KZ Spree 260RKS, loaded weight close to 7,000 lbs, with a 2004 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi. I have a vacuum guage installed and tapped into the manifold vacuum. I have not been able to resolve the following question. I would appreciate hearing from some folks skilled in the subject. Question related to best MPG: Is it better to tow in tow mode, high gear pulling about 5" of vacuum at highway speeds, or is it better to shift down one gear and tow at about 8" of vacuum. The roads in my area are not flat or level enough to tell just monitoring my trip computer MPG.

The vacuum won't start ...

A retired guy sits around the house driving his wife crazy. One day she says to him: "Joe, you know that you could do something useful around here- perhaps you can vacuum the house once a week." He thinks it over and says: "Sure, why not. Where is the vacuum?" A half an hour later he comes back into the kitchen to get a cup of coffee. His wife says, "I didn't hear the vacuum running, I thought you were going to clean the floors?" Exasperated, Joe answers... "The stupid thing is broken, it will not start, we need to by a new one." "That's funny" the wife says, "it worked fine last time I used it, show me what is going on." So he showed her. Click Here.
