Dirt Devil Vac

On our previous Fifth wheel we had a Dirt Devil vac that worked Great. So we were relieved to see on installed on our new RW. However unless we were short changed. There is no power head with this unit. Which makes it almost impossible to vacuum the carpets. Are we missing something? The basic kit came oath a attachment that has a brush which can be retracted. But it is not a power head like our older unit had. Any help here?

I believe they all come without the powerhead. This was a bone of contention some time back.

Would LOVE a power head. Can't vacuum carpets properly and wand to Dirt Devil cracked and broke within a couple weeks of getting rig. Dealer will replace, but still would like power head option also.

I had joined this forum before purchasing our 36FL so I knew ahead of time that they did not come with a power head so the DW kept the power head from the Sabre that got traded in.

We were not happy that a head for the carpet did not come with the RW either. We ordered the "Rug Rat" head and it spins up pretty fast. Seems to do a good job of cleaning. I also broke the plastic extension tube after about 2 uses of the vacuum. Ordered an aluminum one from Amazon when I ordered the rug rat.

Was wondering why the vac. did a "fair" job last night when I used the central vac for the first time on our new 39MB ......NO POWER HEAD ...... gonna order one now. Geeze........ you'd think that Crossroads would include one for the $$$ that we pay for these 5ers !
