ChrisandGarren mentioned the suction cups though early in this discussion when I had no clue of how to implement them around the slide and as like most ideas the piping came to me in the middle of the night. I did not think the suction cups would hold but the 4 inch cups rated at 65lbs a piece are over kill for my 12 lbs of piping total....again thank you guys for the feed back. I am not a salesman and can't bring myself to push something so simple. I am just glad I came up with something cheap that I can use in these rally situations.

I cannot take credit for the suction cups (other than mentioning them!) because I saw them on another website when I was doing research.
Glad it works on your test so far - if you happen to have the measurements you used to build it would love to use it (since we have the same coach!) in case we ever need something like that.

....thank you.....I will send the exact measurements later when I get home....I was just cutting to fit. Any velcro straps long enough to go around 3" ABS work great. Looking at how I did it....if FR could put just some little keepers on the sides and bottoms to go between the rollers on the bottom and not disturb the rubber gasket on the side so you could get an strap through would be perfect but then that would mean they would have been thinking that you might need to vent up at rally's like this.

From reading here FR gets plenty of venting around here , nice job on the riser. I think gopro mounts would work if the gel is clean for a more permanent mount.

.....anything that won't impede the slide operation or the gasket because at this juncture in my warranty, I don't want to give them a reason not to pay.....with the cups, you clean up the circles and nothing was ever there.

I use two 2" Suction cups, and they work fine for the thinwall PVC, about 5# max.

Also, the 1-1/4" exhaust extension should be below the pipe by about the distance off the pipe diameter, or, in my case 3". I have run my gennie 24 hours a day for up to five days.

The only problem I've ever had is the suction cups sun rotting.

I have been at the rally in Phoenix 3 days now....I run my generator a total of 6 hours or so a day and I passed muster.....a lot of guys who spent upwards of $100 bucks at the rally to buy one are having different thoughts 😊.Click image for larger version

Nice set up.....you might get water accumulation at the elbow at bottom of your stack if it doesn't drain....let us know if it does (for information only)

Glad your design passed muster. Where they as bad as you thought about enforcing that requirement?......
