Last year at the IRV National Rally in Tennessee, I had the fortune to park next to a Mobile Suites owner that had a 2004 with a gas Onan generator. I spent a little time with him talking about the installation.
His generator was connected to a "transfer switch" that switched the power based upon what source the unit was using (shore power or generator).
The gas "tank" was located on the curb side of the unit up front next to the genset in an isolated "box". The gasoline filler was on the curbside behine a small door (like your's on the driver's side).
I cannot remember for certain but, I ~think~ the genset exhaust was through the bottom of the unit and out the roadside.
The owner was from Ohio and kept the unit stored in one of those "outside" metal roof covers. Looked brand new. He said he detailed the outside twice a year before his two annual trips.
The owner said he used the genset whenever he would lose power at his S&B, as well as when boondocking. H also said he would turn it on an hour or so before he parked for the night (while traveling) to cool the rig down.
He ran it for me, as I am the curious type and have considered ditching my Honda 3000 sometime. I can say that it was very quiet. He also said the gasoline consumption was very manageable.
Hope this helps with your "Suh-Weet". Love mine.
