    Eureka Yellow Jacket Central Vac

    Long story short, our dealer (who is three hours away) mailed me a new Eureka Yellow Jacket Central Vac to replace our broken one. The old unit has a "T" plastic fitting glued to the intake and of course the new one did not come with one. Has anyone been able to remove the "T" fitting from the vac? If so, how did you do it? Or do I have to go through Heartland to get a new one? Thanks - Mike

    Maybe you can get a PVC fitting at your local hardware store.

    Hi Dan! Went to Orchard Hardware Store and they advised I would have to go to a RV Store for the part. They advised it is an RV plumbing fitting. The closest RV store is closed for the weekend so I may have to wait till Monday. Thanks - Mike

    Thanks to all for all the advise. Have a couple of plumbing stores that were closed over the weekend. I will try them tomorrow. Mike

    Central vacs don't use standard PVC parts. The pipes, fittings are a thinner wall and polished on the inside. Skip the plumbing supply.

    Look here.

    I got all my central vac stuff here, for both the house and the trailer.
