Good for you. I did the same. Ran mine in a bay below the bathroom. Hose comes up and into the baseboard next to the heater duct. Bath is more centrally located so hose reaches front to rear easily.

Nope, took ours out. Wife did not like it. No power head or some reason. I liked it. She wins. Bought the little 110V roll around Dyson. It has a power head and will take chrome off a bumper hitch. It fits in the cabinet where the accessories were for the old one. And can take it out to the car or where needed.

Dw says she would like one but we aren't full timers and can't see it being worth it. We are not that strapped for space. We use one of those rechargeable hand vacs with extension and beater bar. Works good for floor and detaches for the small areas and furniture. Plus its battery operated so can use it without plugging in or starting the Genny. Works well but doesn't hold much so it has to be emptied after each use. The handle folds down so it takes up little space. I can't see any reason to get anything else.

I just installed a Dirt Devil 1500 in my Meridian. Mounted it in a passenger side compartment and ran the tubing up through the floor and into a cabinet below my pantry. Added the vac-sweep attachment also. The wife loves it!

Put in a Dirt Devil a few years ago. Seldom use it. Easier to use a Dust Buster we have mounted on the wall in the bathroom. We don't use the MH very many times during the year, so there are only a few times vacuuming is needed. I do use the Dirt Devil for preliminary cleaning when I plan to shampoo the carpet.

Edit: I installed it in an outside compartment under the kitchen and ran the hose up to a panel space under the fridge. Since we had small kids, I disabled the switch in the hose port and mounted one higher on the wall next to the stove.

I tell you, we had one in a 2000 Discovery that we owned for a year and the wife thought it was the greatest invention since the thermos bottle...I guess it depends on how much you vacuum, but I am sick of these little hand machines that allow you to vacuum for 60 seconds and then have to be taken apart and cleaned before you can continue for another 60 seconds. The other thing she loves is the Vac-Pan that allows you to just sweep the kitchen floor into a built-in dust pan in the wall.

Can you tell me the Dyson model number? We have one in the big house, but would love one in the RV if it stores well!!
