Generator exhaust extension

Going to LSU game in a couple of weeks. They require that generator vent above camper. Think I could just get a piece of conduit and run it up Ladder to above camper. Use a radiator hose for turn. Anyone EGR try this?

I would try to use a pipe bigger than the exhaust exit pipe
and remember
most engines are tuned to run with what they came with
check to make sure it is not running too hot
don't want to burn that baby up

Ok. I'll see about bending a pipe then use a much bigger pipe.

Camco makes exactly what you need. Here's a link to Camping world
and a pretty good video.

That would work great for a motor home but what if its a smaller unit like a stand alone generator? I was in a similar situation earlier this summer and thought of using copper tubing or couduit to get it up into the air and away from peoples TT's

The OP's avatar shows a motorhome so the Camco extension should
work great for him.

Donno what to say about a smaller genny. Most folks just set them away
from the seating area with the exhaust pointed downwind and use an
extension cord as necessary.

It is for motorhome. Only think I'm worried about the Camco unit. I see it is not sealed. I'm guess this design is allowed. Its the only one I can find on internet.

It's supposed to draw air in at the bottom and move it up the pipe along
with the genny exhaust. This helps keep the pipe cooler than it
would otherwise be. I have no real life experience with it and am not
endorsing it, just passing along the link. Camco makes decent RV stuff so
it should work. I didn't look for any online owner reviews.

Good Luck!
