central vac?

Any recommendations on installing central vacuum? I found an eureka yellow jacket on sale, and going to install it in my 32tsbh. Anyone have any advice on where I should place the unit, or which electrical connection to use? I don't think I have any outlets in my cabinets or storage compartments, so might have to add one. Anyone use this unit?

My suggestion is get a Dyson V6
Those central vacs have cheap plastic attachments, cheap plastic hose that you have to store somewhere then drag out and plug in to get cheap sub par suction that gets worse after the first use on a new bag.
And you always need shore power to use the noisey set up.

The Dyson hangs from its charging cradle waiting to be used without stooping and dragging hoses and attaching attachments. It also has a beater bar that actually can suck dirt out of a carpet.

I already bought the central vac but have not received it yet. I currently use a dyson cordless and it is OK, but we are on a seasonal site and get a lot of small gravel in the trailer that the dyson just can't handle.

What a let down Itslat, I haven't had to suck anything like that up yet. I haven't been on gravely site yet. Dirt, dust, leaves, sand, food it works great.
That's ok though I have the central vac still with the suction floor pan and can sweep gravely stuff right into it.
That's the only thing I like about my central vac.

I installed the Red Devil kit on my previous Rockwood, and we really liked it! Never a problem with it, and the hose was H/D and long enough, that it would reach to the nose compartment, allowing me to vac that clean as needed.

I also installed the Red Devil kit on my Greyhawk. I also added the "dust pan" option. We really love it too!

Red devil

We installed the red devil and it performs very well in our fifth wheel. Installed under bed so changing bags is easy. Ran power out from there to outlet at bedside. Hose reaches the length of rv. Putting it under the bed also made mounting the hose connection flap easy in sidewall of bedframe.
