Generator high rise extensions.

I am attending the Phoenix rally at the end of the month. Do to the crowd they are recommending generator extensions to exhaust fumes above the coach and I have yet to see anything I like. First of all, before it goes up it has to extend out beyond my dinette slide and strapping it to my coach is out of the question.....any suggestions out there?

A recommendation is not a "requirement". May be nice but if you can't, you can't. JMO

My buddy has a home made one using PVC, some small brackets and some exhaust tubing. It seems to make the generator even quieter. There are pictures of them on the internet.

....to tell you the truth I am leaning towards it being a recommendation only. I went to Onan and they cautioned against the home made or otherwise modified exhaust systems for the carbon dioxide back up problems and because their emissions output is as safe as they can make it but I do want to be a good neighbor.

I have an Onan 4000 watt Juice Box. It's an external mounted gen set and hooks into the hitch at the rear of the 5er. I had an exhaust pipe from the gen set to a Gen Turi made. I hook it up to the ladder at the rear of the 5er. I've run it like this since 2009 and no bad effects on the gen set at all. The exhaust extension runs from the right of the gen set to the left, underneath the gen set. I hope you can see it. Because this gen set is outside it didn't come with an exhaust pipe so therefore I had one made.

Seems simple, now picture the piping that has to run out from under your slides one direction or the other and then up as well as mounting it your slide or some other part of the coach to keep it stable.

Make some hooks where it can hang from the top of the slide, then use some small C clamps at the bottom to secure it. That should be solid enough to support the extension to the exhaust pipe. I'd design it similar to a GenTuri so that the generator exhaust draws in cool air to keep the pipe cool, plus cooling the air down will allow you to use CPVC, least it should.

Why not use some type of flexible tubing laying along the ground towards the rear of your rig and away from your neighbors? You see auto shops do this all the time to run cars indoors and to vent the exhaust out. Seems like it would be easier to store also.

Now that I have been looking into though I have not found something suitable yet....
