Paper Towel into the whole house vacuum

I did another one of my "Doh's" and let a paper towel get sucked in.


It didn't make it to the vacuum bag and now is lodged somewhere in the internal hose.


Has anyone here found a way to reverse the vacuum (to see if I can blow it out), or traced the hose in the basement ?


As far as I can tell, it shoots toward the back of the bus from the vacuum and then behind the water panel. From that point on, it doesn't see very accessible.


Thanks.

Do you have access to a shop vac? If so maybe remove the bag from the RV vacuum and leave it out, with the access door/panel open to allow air flow. Then put the shop vac on the 'in' end of the RV vacuum to see if it will pull the paper towel out.

Unplug the vac and place a shop vac into the intake line where you picked up the paper towel, maybe it will suck it back out. You could also try to introduce additional air from the basement if necessary with a compressor.

After going back and forth from inside to the basement both push and pull, I finally got it out with the shop vac.

Thanks to all for the suggestion.
