When I did the dry bagging here is how it went. Between the V3840 and an older 2000 series I borrowed from a friend we were able to apply the vacuum and get the seal. Not real happy at this point. The older 2000 series has an exposed wire that heats up and does not release well and tears the bag.
After again reviewing what I could find for information and tips and tricks I took my last bag along with the V3840 and practiced, practiced, practiced until I figured out what and how to make it work. After the 2nd day I was not happy with how the process was coming along and decided to re-vac and re-seal the bags.
Here is what I did;
• Opened up the V3840 as if I was going to clean it.
• Laid in the dry bag along with the mouse.
• Closed the unit. At this point the V3840 will not auto start. The dry bag material is not strong enough to activate the sensor.
• Take a piece of regular vacuum bag material and slide it in until the V3840 auto starts.
• From this point on regular procedures apply.
• After the seal is complete slide the bag out slightly and repeat for the second seal.
NOTE: The V3840 sealing strip does not have an exposed wire and seals much better
