My question, does that GenTuri make an appreciable difference in the noise around the camp or does it just served take the fumes up higher

The design helps vent the fumes up so you and fellow camper/tailgaters aren't breathing them. The Gen-turi ad says it helps with noise, but you can still hear it running.

I'm thinking of using those small dent puller suction cups on the side for the strap. I ordered four in case I want to put two closer to the top.

Thanks again !

We use our Gen turi frequently on our Legacy. I bought the Gen turi suction cups rather than drilling into the side of the coach. They work great. I too just leave the adapter on the exhaust all the time, has not been a problem. Suction cups are from Camco so they are available easily. Here is where I got mine:

We as well use the adapter while driving. You do not need the chrome adapter while driving down the road.

Thanks for all the replies.

I am going to set it up for the first time this weekend. I have yet to get the extension as Home Depot did not have any thin walled PVC. I'll try Lowe's.

I'll see if I like "the look" without the chrome extension. It's good to know it will run fine going down the road without it.

Thanks again to all.

Ken

Also, the adapter is an extension also. Once I installed it, there is is no need to swap it out with chrome extension. I have used my generator for over a year with no issues.

I also use suction cups, but I couldn't get them to stay on the side of the coach, so I made a bracket and used 2 suction cups that stick on the window. I'll look for pics and post if I can find them.
Could you tell me if you purchased the PVC at a local hardware store or something like home depot? I not having much luck finding it.

Thanks,
Ken

Yes, I bought it at Home Depot. Its actually called 3" sewer pipe with belled end. Its thin walled PVC pipe for low pressure sewer line.

Gen-turi on the Berk

I guess putting an extension on the 3 inch pipe is a user preference I have used the standard setup from the manufacturer on 3 different MH and never felt or required the need to extend it.
