Onan exhaust.

I was running my 3600QP generator and noticed that under the generator there is a significant amount of air coming out of where the muffler is.

It's not loud (as to indicate a leak pre muffler) and there is air coming out of the exhaust pipe also but the hot air coming from the bottom of the generator makes me wonder does this seem like an exhaust leak?

This is where the air is coming from. It's my first RV so I'm not familiar with these generators. Is that normal?

That is air forced through the generator via the flywheel to cool the engine & generator itself. Exactly as it should.
