2009 Bay Star Generator Exhaust

Has anyone permanently relocated the exhaust for their generator on an older Bay Star coach?

Ours is located right behind the passenger tire. Typically, when we are setup the table I use for cooking is right at the end of the awning and very close to the exhaust. And, since it is on the same side that we would always sit it can be a little noisy when boondocking.

It just got me to thinking if I could re-direct it and move it towards the back of the coach or to the complete opposite side.

Most people just buy the exhaust extension that routes the exhaust gases to above the roof. Around $110.

But over the years, I have seen rerouting of the genset exhaust but it's rare.

On my BSS the gen is in the middle on the driver side, but located under the FWS. Newmar routed the exhaust to exit in front of the driver side front tire. So it can be done. But if you’re expecting that moving the pipe will reduce noise level, I think you’ll be disappointed.

on my baystar the exhaust is in the back behind the rear tires driver side. but i agree, an exhaust extension pipe is your best bet. in fact ive seen several venues (football games, car races,) where they are required.

Thanks everyone who has replied so far.

Yeah, I looked at, and thought about, extending it above the roof. I was hoping to keep it under the coach and "kind of" hidden. But, as I have read and mfredm states, it is required in some venues. So, that might have to be my primary option.

Also, I get that moving it won't "quiet" the noise, just don't like the fumes when boondocking and sitting under the awning or cooking breakfast outside more than anything. The noise isn't really that bad even where it is located.

We'll see if anyone out there has had luck routing it to a different location than where they installed it on the 2009s.

Exhaust Snorkel

You may want to consider a snorkel like the Genturi that will route the exhaust fumes to the roof. I bought one for my old Class C and I am using it again for my Bay Star since the exhaust always seems to be under a slideout.
Here's a link. Have used it while boondocking for a few years, works great. Also reduces the exhaust noise.
