2012 Canyon Star generator exhaust pipe

Would it be a big deal to route the generator exhaust to the rear of the coach or the driver's side? Seems like being on the curbside isn't the best location especially while football tailgating even with a Gen-Turi installed.

It is "probably" routed the way it is because of the slideouts, not good to exhaust under one. However, you "should" be able to re-route it out the rear with a little help from a muffler shop to fabricate the piping.

Hi HUGHP,
Try to keep the length of the exhaust pipe close to the length it came from the factory. Increasing the length 4 or 5 times may not make for the best generator performance.

I did that very thing on my Baystar. The stock pipe is about 18" long and points straight out the curbside....right next to the awning. NOT great for any sort of camping unless you spend ALL your time indoors. I loosened the factory clamp on the genny, removed the end hanger on the pipe, then turned it 90* or so. Muffler shop made me a nice extension (about 5 feet on mine) with pipe that is slightly larger...the ID of the new pipe fits over the OD of the factory pipe. Slid 'er over with some Hi-temp silicon (red) and clamped it tight. Added a hanger at the rear....good to go. Total cost was 20 bucks or so....and two beers. Performance has been unaffected by the increased exhaust length.

On our DSDP the exhaust is on the drivers side in front of the front tire. We've never had any problems with getting exhaust fumes in the MH. It's not quite right under the slide, but real close.
