Just a thought
Moving the exhaust would help.
Think of it this way. Let's say you have a truck with aftermarket exhaust that only comes out one side.... The truck will be louder on one side the exhaust comes out vs the side that doesn't have the pipe... Just like how it is with the trailer. It's very quiet on the right side but if you go to the left side it's louder as that's the way it points. A good amount of sound the generator produces is from the exhaust. The intakes too on some can produce a good amount of noise depending on how it's built.
Plus you wouldn't want to add an additional silencer as it would increase the back pressure and build additional heat which will change the performance and longevity of the machine as it wasn't designed for an additional silencer.
I'm not about to change the exhaust. I MIGHT so the extension but highly doubt I'll do it.... One because I'm cheap and two because I don't think it's that loud. All I wanted to do was reduce interior noise which I did.
