Well, good news, you don't need a bag! The trash just settles to the bottom of the bucket and you just dump it out.
I own one of these -- it has many little operational anoyances -- like wheels falling off, lid popping off, etc. If you run into these scenarios and want help on fixes, drop me a line.
Would you please rate my response. I think you'll see some icons at the bottom of the post to enter a rating.

Lights are 12 volts.
The motor has taps on it to pull 12 volts rather than 120 volts for the lights, uses the motor as a transformer.
Should be black and white to the motor from the switch, believe the switch breaks the black wire. White wire should be neutral. I can't remember colors for the wires to the lights. Would expect it to be the white wire and then the "tap" wire to be red.
One crazy way to do it, is to hook up wires, leave the light bulbs out, turn on power, and check voltage at the bulb socket with a voltmeter. (This is one of those things they tell you on television to only let a professional do, do not attempt at home.)

all you have to do is open it up and take the paper filter off and then it's a wet vac. If it has a foam over filter you leave that on
