Does this kit have a on/off switch?
My vacuum unit is located int he basement, so I am running a standard outlet, same as the interior of the home. When I plug this hose in to the outlet, do I have to manually switch the vacuum on at the unit, or can I do so with the hose, same as the interior kit hose
Thank you for your question on the model CK140 central vacuum system garage kit. The hose that comes with the CK140 kit does not have a switch on the handle but it will turn the system on when inserted into one of the standard low voltage inlets.

What is the OD of the fitting on the machine end?
I have a Hoover GUV and the stock hose has a fitting with 1.5" outer diameter on the machine end and 1.25" OD on the attachments end. I'm looking for non-Hoover replacement hose. Thanks!
Thank you for your question on the central vacuum system hoses. The wall end of our hoses will fit into a 1-1/2” opening and the handle end will fit into a 1-1/4” wand.
