vacuum destroyed by power surge

A power surge took out my transfer switch and some appliances.  Fortunately, the washer/dryer had a surge protector that I replaced.  The vacuum is toast and Monaco doesn't have one and the manufacturer no longer makes RV vacs.  I thought that I found one on Amazon, but, after a month they said that the supplier no longer had them; my money was returned.  Any ideas where I may find one?

Open up the housing and then take it to a vacuum / janitor supply shop.  The motor and fan are common to several units and they can probably match it up with one from another model. 

Might look something like this:  https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/acQAAOSwRrxc~~75/s-l1600.jpg

I replied a day or so ago but it never posted for whatever reason?? I removed the central vac from my 07 Neptune a few years ago. I think it was the Dirt Devil model. Not sure I ever even used it. It's yours if you want it, just let me know.

I would urge you to invest in one of the Progressive Industries EMS series protection units.  They protect you against any kind of AC problem, not just surges, and have a lifetime warranty!  You will pay around $300, depending on the model.  It's low-cost insurance considering that a serious AC problem could wipe out just about everything in your coach!  JMHO

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!  🙂

Kinda surprised that people don't put that on the top of their list for immediate purchase and installation right after purchasing their new or used RV. My Progressive Industries EMS-HW-50C has prevented numerous power problems since 2010 when we first started on our full-time travel. I had a portable TRC SurgeGuard prior to that where we were living full-time in Santa Clarita CA prior to retirement but luckily learned later how superior the PI-EMS unit performed.
