With all due respect for your brother; he died as a result of a generator exhaust pipe modification?

CO poisoning can leave permanent damage. Years ago 3 of my cousins (all siblings) went to Mexico and were overcome by CO in a cheap motel room. The youngest, a girl, recovered quickly, another had permanent damage to his hand, similar to arthritis, but the older brother suffered permanent brain damage which changed his whole life. Be careful and make sure your CO detector is working

Too bad you removed your last post I'm guessing to keep piece in the family.

And all that, even though I have ALSO clearly pointed out that this exhaust tip is ROTATABLE, and can be aimed in ANY desired direction - OR the tip can be cut to any lesser angle preferred or desired by others choosing this add-on to suit their own specific situation or purpose as well!

Ok, I think we take a step back & a deep breath.

Gary shared a cosmetic improvement made that suited his needs. While we all appreciate everyone's safety concerns about CO exposure, that is not why the post was made. Let's take it in the spirit it was intended & end the debating of who's right & who's wrong on the CO poisoning.

Thank you.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

The posts cover most everything;; We had that problem In our chapter;; Someone found a manufacture that was making a light weight tube that went up to the roof of the coach; Prefect, We all thought OOPS;. The extension of the exhust pipe Voids All engine repairs. It seems With the added back pressure what was happening was they were burning valves and the Cylinders were Carboning up causing bad things to happen in the engine.;;; We are carefull to park away from the exhust and if we hear the genset start we close the windows/vents. Even being warm in the coach is better then being dead;; Life is good; Look for the good , not the bad.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carbon Monoxide (CO), is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas which is slightly lighter than air.
Carbon monoxide is produced from the partial oxidation of carbon-containing compounds; it forms when there is not enough oxygen to produce Carbon Dioxide (CO2), such as an internal combustion engine.
Exhaust gas is emitted as a result of the combustion of fuels such as natural gas, gasoline/petrol and diesel fuel. It often disperses downwind in a pattern called an exhaust plume.

Any solidly connected extension would be very detrimental to generator operation and would probably void any warranty. However, the tall vertical extensions discussed here are attached only through a venturi (ala the Genturi Exhaust) . Big difference.

The venturi system only adds a couple feet of added exhaust before going onto the larger pipe. I also used a sweep to minimize backpressure.

I love it. What a great response!!!!
