The other benefit I haven't seen mentioned here is fire safety.

Being a drag racer, we get pitted in grassy areas most of the time. One time last season I forgot to take my Genturi along and after 4 days the grass in an area about a foot square (well, round really) was very dried out.

And it keeps those diesel exhaust fumes out of MY coach, as well as the neighbors'.

Just sayin'.

Does it reduce the noise

My generator is under the aft bed in the basement. Will the gen turi make it quieter in the coach?

Doubt that you'll see any difference in noise level. Noise inside is likely vibration and engine noise not exhaust noise. If it is exhaust noise, I'd focus on a new muffler.
I use ours on the generator and the Aqua-Hot. Function is to get the exhaust above the coach, not to control noise. Keeps gases out of your windows and your neighbors area. I've heard that some rallies require them if you're using your generator since they have tight spacing.

I used "Eye bolts" (well that's what they call them)

Two metal rods, bent with flattened ends and holes in the end that form a half loop when layed on the wall and screwed down.

Used touch up paint so they match the coach.. From a short distance (like 10 feet) they vanish.

Is this what you're talking about? They're called "pad eyes". I installed a pair at the correct height for the support straps, screwed in with sealant. From 8 ft away, nearly invisible.

I use a double suction cup with a handle. It is designed as a handle in the bath/shower, found in bed bath and beyond or similar store.

I have an outside snap-on sun/privacy screen on the driver's side window which has a male "button" snap at each corner of the window. My Gen-Turi pipe comes up between the two lower screen snaps.

I moved the black rubber "tube holder/bungee cord" up the tube to level with the snaps. I then took the metal hooks off the left and right bungee straps. I cut a piece of 1" nylon webbing to length (actually a little short for tension) for each bungee strap. On one end of the nylon I put the correct snap for the screen snap on the MH, and I attached the other end to the hole where the metal hook was with a small bolt and nut.

No drilling holes or tape. And it's up high enough to provide greater tube stability in the wind.

I use suction cups that were provided by Gen Turi but plan to use the permanent bar tabs provided.
