Winter Storage

I will be storing my 2003 Dutch Star Cummins ISC 350 hp in a unheated storage unit. I do not plan on running the engine during storage but would like to run the generator once a month under load. Problem is I will have to drive into the storage unit so my generator exhaust will be about 50ft into the unit. The storage unit has a 12x14 door. I know a diesel generator puts out less carbon monoxide then a gas but am I safe? Of course I will be leaving the 12 x14 door open.

Sharing storage with neighbor do space is limited, if I back in there would be enough space to open the door but the battery tray would not pull all the way out if I needed access.

With a door that size there is plenty of room around your RV where you won't asphyxiate yourself. If you still have doubt, run a fan to circulate the air, or on a windy day. I've ran my rv in a close shop for over an hour, with door close, but ran the shop exhaust fan with no problems.

Best of luck.
