Generator Exhaust Extensions

Has anyone made an extension for their generator to get the exhaust out from under the slide?

Now that I think about it that is a dumb place for it to be on our 364.. I have not noticed any fumes yet.. Our old Thor had the pipe go up to the driver side front tire

Never been a problem on my 335DS. You are right it is under the slide but generally when I run the generator I run the AC, so I have not seen a problem.

When we our Gen overhauled, the tech took it upon himself to reroute the exhaust to the back of the coach. He said he liked us and didn't want us to croak due to the exhaust. Nice guy. Didn't charge me.

The exhaust pipe will pivot to whatever direction you want. However, I don't think that just putting a long tube on it is a good answer. The exhaust extensions don't actually do that, they position the exhaust in the center of a larger diameter riser but leave room for air to enter and rise. A long tube will put too much resistance on the exhaust manifold and could affect the performance of the genny.

There are many racer type trailers that use an extension on the exhaust pipe to redirect the fumes up above where the crew next door is pitted and work'n......

I believe I read in my 2016 Cummins - Onan manual that any extension invalidates the warranty and are not recommend. Not sure so please check.

I used a piece of 3 in aluminum irrigation pipe and took it to an exhaust place so they could bend it for me!
