Technorick have you addressed the generator chimney issue? Would love to see a photo of that. Should I extend the exhaust pipe to the front of the coach?

No not yet. It's going to have to be a home made right angle extension to the rear and another right angle facing upward to clear the slide out.

I would not exhaust to the front.

Don't forget that the AC is underpowered for the coach and can trip the AC breaker on a day over 90 degrees because the AC breaker was installed right next to the main breaker and they overheat.

We picked up our 2015 30DS this week and I wanted to provide some updates on items that others had commented on. The main TV is no longer the flip up style shown in the brochures. It now swivels so it can be viewed from everywhere. Several of the exterior storage spaces now have lights installed in them and some of them also have electrical outlets.

Yes I tested it today. Stock elbow pipe and fittings from the auto parts store and a five foot extension connect to the Venturi chimney. The Venturi comes with hooks you are supposed to glue or screw to the coach exterior to hold the pipe upright and take off the downward pressure.

I didn't want to screw or stick stuff to the outside so I used a suction handle grip instead. The pieces all fit snug and come apart easily to stow In the bag with the Venturi. This solves the problem of running the generator with the slide open. The fumes are routed to the right and then up over the top of the roof.

An alternative route might have been to come straight out from the generator pipe and up the outside of the extended slide out. Bit I didn't want to run the pipe up past the slide windows. I will need to fabricate an adjustable hight stand to hold the lower pipe. Shown in the pictures below is an old folding bag chair that workers quite well.

Has anyone thought to have the generator exhaust rerouted? Thinking of routing back next to the engine Exhaust so a normal chimney can be used..

Where did you hear about the AC? I wonder if they'll replace mine under warranty? I still have until May before my one year is up.

FR rep I spoke to said it's a mid year change along with glass shower doors and black tank wash.
