The enforcement was non existent at best though the few coaches around me did use the stacks...there were plenty of 5th wheels with portable generators that of course had no stacks at all so yes, it was all to do about nothing....I am glad I did not spend the money but also happy I was prepared and it worked.

Knight has the right idea, get a genturi, that will eliminate the back pressure problems. It will attach on the side of the slideout with two small brackets and rubber straps. Then get exhaust clamps, pipes, and fittings from an auto parts store. It will not cost much and is easy. I had to do the same thing. Anytime you have to park side by side with other units, such as tailgating, rallies, etc. it is common courtesy not to blow your exhaust gasses, heat and noise at your neighbor.

......hummmm I passed muster for about 17 bucks.....and when I take it down there are no pop rivet latches to hold the bungie cords I saw everyone using with the gentri system which cost them $100 plus and my neighbors loved the idea.

No, No.....my point is, there is nothing permanent there.....once I remove the suction cups and wipe the ring off, you won't know anything at all was there but should I add a clip that is glued on or a pop rivet for example and take it in and tell them I am having slide problems well then they would have something to point too weather it has anything to do with it.

....though I suppose your saying that I am telling them here and your right about that but my gadget once removed does not impeded the slide operation and hopefully I would never forget and pull it in with my smoke stack up. 😊

The sun really does like the suction cups, though!

....as far as?? I cleaned the surface they were going and added a little spit....and they held for 5 days without fail in the Arizona sun....the sun will do a number on anything but for the time they will have to be in use the rest if the time in the basement I figure I can get a few years out of them for under 5 bucks a piece on Amazon.

I live in the High Desert area of Southern California, and the sun eats the Home Depot suction cups like lunch, even when they're in a compartment; the heat gets 'em. I keep a couple of spares inside (cheap, and better than drilling into the MoHo.

A friend and I made a bunch of them, using aluminum strap from H.D., pop-rivets, and 2" suction cups.
