I personally dont trust the after market exhaust extenders as the additional weight can cause cracks to the original exhaust which could allow fumes into the coach.

If you use the support system as designed by having attachment points on the side of the coach, there is very little stress on the exhaust.

My generator exhaust is supported near the end by a rubber mount, I don't see how the gen-turi can put undue stress on it.

As a drag racer we are REQUIRED to use a Genturi type device.

I've had mine since 2007 and used it first on my truck camper and now my motorhome. Lots of hours on this thing.

Dozens of my friends use these as well and I've NEVER seen a problem.

Mine goes everywhere the motorhome goes and I use it any time we are dry camper for more than a few hours.

How long does it take to set up the Genturi? Doesn't look too complicated...

Initial setup about 1/2 hour (I had to cut the exhaust pipe back), after that less than 5 minutes.

If you run your gen put a Genturi on!

Never leave without as the lot you park in may be empty when you get there but not when you come back.
Also most events have parking attendants that have you park in order as you come in to maximize space use.

I made my own in about 20 mins (literally) after I picked up the parts at Home Depot. Cost about $30 and it works GREAT!

Google DIY Genturi or search this forum and you will find lots of information.

See this is just another reason for me to invest in the 150watt sollar panels. With 14 on each side of my mh I'd have more than enough amps to run the ac noo gen needed.
