Vacuum system
Just bought a 1995 Gran Villa and I don't think the previous owner knew there was a vacuum system and there is no info in the manuals.  How can I determine the male/model and find a compatible hose.

My coach has a built in Dirt Devil and I've never need it. It seems like a compromise in every way. We use a small Meile in the coach. We have two 11 year old labs. Shedding season coincides with camping season.  :))

The dirt devil is coming out...

I sure like my original and it's out of the way, under the floor in the bay, good suction and enough tools to get everything. Maybe mine has a turbo on it. Very powerful!

When I changed out my refrigerator I replaced all the flexible hose located under the fridge and into the storage bay with PVC pipe.
This made a big difference in the performance of the built in vacumn system.
Even though the built in system works...
