Wouldn't you also need one for the AquaHot since it's diesel also or does it run too intermittently to matter?

I just made an adaptor to I can attach the Genturi to the Aqua Hot exhaust. None of the included adaptors would fit the AH exhaust pipe.

I only have one since we rarely camp in sites/places where we have to use the genet. I got the Genturi primarily for the AH. However, if someone stays in close quarters in places where you are off grid, using both the generator and AH, you would need two to be kind to your neighbors.

I've heard that... (but I've never stayed anywhere that a GenTuri was required).

Well kinda Mel. The direction of the wind or extreme close proximity to other coaches or structures can limit how well your good exhaust is working. The Gen-turi makes sure the exhaust is above the roof line. Nothing wrong with a little extra peace of mind. Love my Gen-turi.

How will it attach if your coach has no ladder?

I beg to differ. I have been in two different boondock sites (no connections) where the surrounding vegetation trapped a cloud of exhaust abound the unit. 20-30 minutes of running would result in the CO detectors going off. Put on the Gen Turi and problem solved.

Wouldn't simply moving your RV to a boondocking site where the surrounding vegetation did not trap a cloud of exhaust abound the unit accomplish the same thing?

We have spent a few nights in parking lots while on trips and had to run the generator all night for the air conditioner. It lets me sleep a lot better knowing we have the Genturi. Jim.

I use the exhaust kit all the time. It's cheaper than a funeral.

carbon monoxide will kill you and yours with a smile. I haven't heard my alarms since Using it. my gen. runs for most of the day...no problems!

Aside from cost, if the room is available, why don't RV manufacturers run the generator exhaust up to the roof? I have plenty of room between my back wall and rear cap. If heat is an issue, can the pipe be insulated?

This would work for a generator that is in a fixed position, but many are on slide out trays for ease of access and service.

We have friends still using their 20 year old Newall, it has the generator exhaust routed up through the roof.
