Genset noise

Howdy All from sunny California,

Anybody figured out a way to quiet down the interior noise from the generator? I added some soundproofing material to the top of the compartment but the effect was only minor. The MH is a 2013 Forester 3011 with the generator in the left front compartment.

Thanks,

Campingtom

If there is three sides to your box (with out a side as to the floor), then keep insulating with your sound material. Good luck!

I've just bought a 2014 3011 and was surprised at how quite the generator is.

The gen set is the Onan 4000 the box does not have a closed floor and there is not much room at the back and top. I may just have to live with it. Thanks to you all for the help the stuff I used is designed for hot rod engine compartments.
