Onan Gen install

I have the xlr 27hfs with generator prep and will be installing a used Onan 4Ky microquiet I purchased. I've searched around and have seen that several people have done this as well.

Does anyone have any advice for me? I'm also curious on what others did for exhaust. My XLR does not have a hole underneath the generator compartment for connecting a pipe. I assume I just drill a hole where the exhaust will run out? Then just route the piping down and out the side?

A local muffler shop could bend you some pipe for less then you can buy it for .
they do sale a silencer muffler add on for onan also . mounts on the out side and is used with the stock muffler . Been looking for used ones but most want to much when you can buy new for 2850 shipped

The back platform in the generator compartment must be pulled out prior to installing your generator. That will create the opening for your intake as exhaust air and your engine exhaust pipe.

Thanks for the replies. The exhaust part # helped. And here is a pic of the board out for future reference.

Check all the caulking in the Gen box to insure there are no sell voids. That keeps the exhaust gasses out.
