Central vacuume ports

I'm hoping someone with a 3791 RD will tell me where the ports for the vacumme are located. I called my dealer and the tech could not help. he refered me to a Keystone site that did nothing. I'm sure to get better results here. thanks

Ours is behind a cabinet door in the "bar' cabinet. Right above the toe kick sweep opening. Your model calls it a hutch. The hose reaches both ends of the trailer from the one place.

There should also be one in the basement where you empty the vacuum bag. Would trade our central vac for a rechargeable stick vac in a heartbeat. The toe kick slot works well but you lose a lot of suction using the hose.

You didn't say what year you have. On our 2010 it was in a seperate cabinet on the island. In our new rig it's right over the toe kick and in the basement.

thanks all. DW does the vacuuming and she uses a Shark. She never used the central vac in the old monty and I don't suppose the new one wont get used either. Just need to keep the hose and attachments tucked away in the basement out of the way..

We also use a shark and gave the hose and attachments away as soon as we found someone who wanted them. Why carry around something you'll never use.

This is also where ours is on our 2018.5 3791RD. There is also a port and on/off switch in the front pass through that can be used to hook up the hose and vacuum basement or maybe even your truck if you get close enough.

We have one in ours and have used it one time. What a waste of money and space. We use the Shark and keep it in the front closest. All the hose and attachments for the built in vac are in the stick house garage.

I agree for the most part but we do use the sweeping-in feature a lot and like that part.

yep the vacuum system that comes with these is a joke. in the basement I hooked up our 2 gallon wet /dry vac where the bag was. plug wet/dry into the power on a RC switch. when we vacuum just hit the RC switch in the trailer wet/dry fires up. a lot more suction, able to use the toe kick and 2 gallon capacity not to mention no more vacuum bags to change out. simply pull out the hose and I can use the wet/dry on my truck or as a blower.
