Stic Vac

Does anyone use a stic vac to clean their trailer? If so, where do you store and recharge it? We have ordered a 19' for Jul delivery, therefore, could get an outlet put into a closet or other area. David

Re: Stic Vac

I carry along a small rechargeable dust buster that fits in the closet or under one of the dinette seats. It does the job and doesn't take up too much room.

Re: Stic Vac

There's so little floor space that a broom with a collapse-able handle works for us. And I can "mop" the whole floor in under 5 min. on my knees with a hand sponge.

Re: Stic Vac

The idea of vacuuming and camping together is wrong is so many ways! I sweep.. when I feel like it. And, shake the rugs. Any heavy cleaning can wait until I get HOME.

Re: Stic Vac

We carry a Dust Devil hand vac that plugs into a 110V outlet. A broom works good too.

Re: Stic Vac

Ahh, what's dirt to one person is planting soil to the next. I just try to stay out of the way of all the cleaning, Liana has a much lower tolerance than me, so I get a pass on cleaning.. but come to think of it she hasn't dumped the tanks at all.

Re: Stic Vac

Hi: All... I'm with Donna D on this one. There's something contradictory about cleaning and camping on the same weekend!!! If "Our Escape Hatch" requires sweeping changes we have a small brush and dust pan to remove the crud. Keeping shoes outside on the mat enhances the environment inside too. The idea I thought was to rest&relax Alf

Re: Stic Vac

I don't know, sometimes I just feel the need to vacuum.... especially the little space between the screen door track and where the front door hits.

I have this Black & Decker 12 volt vacuum I really like.

Re: Stic Vac

We have the B&D vac Cheryl has as well. It works quite good for both the vehicle and the trailer. And yes, that spot by the screen door is always on the list to do. We bought ours at CTC.

Re: Stic Vac

Thanks to all for the helpfull replies. Looks like we will go with the broom and some kind of electric hand vac and will ask Reace to add a 110 outlet to the wardrobe. David
