How / where is the tailpipe attached for generators on a slide

Hi, I purchased an 03 Phaeton that did not come with a generator. I'm adding a Onan QD in the front on the generator slide and have to install a tailpipe that goes out under the drivers side. The installation manual says that the tailpipe needs a tailpipe hanger every 2 or 3 feet and one close to the end but how does that work if you have gen slide (the tailpipe that moves with the generator can't be attached to something that doesn't move with it)? I'd love to see pictures of how it's attached.

Thanks, Mike

I think I'd give Tiffin a call and see how they do it. Why not go to the source

On my Vectra Winnebago installed a horizontal 'Y'-shaped bracket (open to the front of the coach) that supports the pipe when the generator slide is in its operating position. When the generator slides forward for access the pipe just comes out of the open end of the Y-support.

Same here.

The ones I have had use a "cone" facing forward and, as the generator slides back, the exhaust pipe fits into the cone and thereby connects to the rest of the generator exhaust system. Allignment is somewhat critical to get a correct seal.

Thanks for the all the responses. I'll get something like the Y built / welded (cone one sounds like an interesting idea but I think my exhaust has to go straight out to the side and so that won't work for me)

This what we have.

The tail pipe does not move.

The muffler moves with the slide.

When closed, the muffler tail piece slides into the described cone.

That's excellent! I really appreciate the pictures! (I have to admit that it took me several hours to figure out exactly what the 'Y' shaped bracket was!!!)

I guess it's more 'V'-shaped--I was working from memory when I described it as a 'Y'.

Tiffin doesn't use a V notch support bracket. They simply add a hanger, like what is shown in the DSDP photo earlier. The hanger is mounted to the slide so it moves with the generator. If you kick it with your foot when retracted it is a bit springy but I haven't seen any failures in the last 9 years of owning Allegro Busses. Although, that V notch support certainly can't hurt any as long as it doesn't resonate and transmit vibration into the coach when the generator is running.
