I went back and forth on this before I added it. The rules when we park at some football stadiums specifically state that your exhaust vent must be "above" your motorhome. Out of the box the Gen-turi was a little short so I spent $10 on pipe/paint and added it so I wouldn't be a rule breaker.
Probably doesn't make that big a difference, but it makes me legal when we are visiting other campuses. The extra extension fits in the bag with the rest of the pipe, so its not a hassle.

When you put it that way I guess it makes sense you must be legal. I don't take the Berk to games just NASCAR races and they don't care in fact no exhaust requirement on anything. They are good as long as we give them money to camp LOL.

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.

We use the Gen turi while dry camping, I keep the adapter on all the time and just bought a chrome exhaust turn down that fits over the adapter and drilled it just like the Gen turi. Simple to install, cost about $13 on ebay and solves all the issues. Looks nice too when not using the Gen turi.

Here is the description of the exhaust tip, the actual vendor was BearRiver Co., found them on ebay. Was delivered in two days.
