No, look closely. It merely snaps onto the roof rail and sits on the rear bumper. When it isn't used, the two pieces are bungeed to the rail or the ladder.

Has anyone tried a "Genturi" exhaust extension to carry the exhaust and noise above the coach
This looks like a good idea. Thanks.

Still running the Onan 6Kw here. Has anyone tried a "Genturi" exhaust extension to carry the exhaust and noise above the coach?

Seems like a good idea and gets the stinky exhaust away too

When we were camping in Yellowstone last Oct around 6pm all these generators started running and though most were newer coaches you could smell the exhaust as we walk through out the campground. Although it wasn’t offensively strong you could still smell it. So this spring as Im becoming one with my genset I’ll more than likely buy one. Thanks for posting Bruce.

If you look at one of my albums on classic GMC Motorhome Photos, it is of the construction of a high exhaust totally of PVC which was clip on if you had a roof rack on your coach. About 30 dollars all up and an afternoon. I could do it quicker and more accurately now with a cutoff wheel.

It had a generac at the time but the flex pipe could accommodate pretty much anything

Here is mine finished , 4 -5" 12v fans so it can be run with door closed. Runs 1 15k btu A/C with a little to spare. Actually not wired in these photos, it is wired into a automatic transfer switch with the 12v plug triggering a relay for the fans. IMG_2428.JPGIMG_2434.JPGIMG_2435.JPG

looks good Mark,
I assume you haven't run it midsummer yet?
I've considered doing the same with a predator 3500. I use one on the jobsite and it's magic.

I'm trying to hold out until someone gets their act together and gets an inverter setup for RV use with a warranty.

Did I tell you I spoke with the Cummins Rep at the Tampa RV show a few months ago? Inverter tech coming to their RV lines this year. First it will be with the smaller 2800 microquiet, and then next year to the 4000.
