Troubleshoot a problem with central vac - not in the vac hose

\015 Vac sucks with full power at the canister but no suction at any of the oulets. Would not **** any of the strips of cloth from any of the outlets. Suspect the problem is in the hard white hosing that runs through basement ceiling. Seeking suggestions on ways to trouble shoot in this hosing, not the vaccum hose.\015
