Run genny as required for comfort and utility, but I am mindful of neighbors comfort also so I park where I might least bother them if gen may be required.

No problem while sleeping with gen on if it is required. Have 2 CO detectors and don't have windows open with gen on unless we have gas stove on then we put the exhaust fan on and open window furthest from gen exhaust. Not sleeping with stove on but certainly do with furnace or AC on.

My coach seems reasonably air tight when all buttoned up, but not 100% of course. With all windows closed exaust fan struggles a bit until I crack a window open for better air flow.

Just make sure CO detector is working properly and wind isn't blowing exhaust back into an open window or door. Remember CO is heavier than air if your diverting it up, roof vents should be closed. If your rig is closed up and genny is running you shouldn't run any exhaust fans for any length of time, you could pump the air out the top and pull the CO in the bottom through a hole somewhere. Again if CO detector is working you'd know pretty fast as it located near the floor.

"When considering where to place a carbon monoxide detector, keep in mind that although carbon monoxide is roughly the same weight as air (carbon monoxide's specific gravity is 0.9657, as stated by the EPA; the National Resource Council lists the specific gravity of air as one), it may be contained in warm air coming from combustion appliances such as home heating equipment. If this is the case, carbon monoxide will rise with the warmer air."

Just a reminder that CO detectors should be replaced every 5 years.
