Generator Heat

We recently purchased a used 2005 Holiday Rambler Vacationer with an onboard Onan generator which is located midway down the left side of the motorhome. We have added a Ven-turi exhaust stack. While sitting under the awning, on the opposite side of the motorhome, we are experiencing a lot of heat coming from under the motorhome when the generator is running. Has anyone else experienced this problem and come up with a way to direct the generator engine heat away from under the motorhome and out the generator side of the motorhome?

This is very low tech but the solution that came to my mind would be to set an electric fan under the coach near the genny blowing away from the patio side.

Low tech or not, It sounds like a good idea to me.
