I have placed a large fan near the exhaust to push the smell away. I have the Gen Turi but running a generator all day can still lead to some annoying fumes.

Often, in your situation, you just need to get the exhaust a few feet from the side of the RV to solve the issue. If that's the case and you rarely need to use it, just go to Home Depot and buy a 36" or 48" length of the flexible water heater vent tubing. You can then just lay it over the end of the exhaust and use a stake or other support to direct it away form the RV. The diameter is large enough that you won't case any back pressure.

If you plan on doing this a lot, buy the Genturi. Whenever my coach needs repair or some item added, I enjoy doing the work and fabricating whatever it might need. Even though I like making stuff that is usually better than what I can buy, the Genturi is probably one item you should just buy from the manufacturer. I know many make their own, but what's your time worth. The Genturi comes on sale at Camping World all the time for about $110.00. The quality of the Genturi piping, carrying bag and premade elbows is hard to beat, and is nice looking.

I made a home made type exhaust extension when we owned a Class C, the first attempt failed as there was not enough distance between the metal elbow and the straight exhaust tubing (PVC type) and got to hot and melted. I reconfigured and it worked fine but for the time and trouble it would have been easier to just buy the Genturi, which is what I did for our current rig.

I love our Winnebago Aspect, but when it came to the generator exhaust the designers must have been out to lunch. The exhaust pipe exits RIGHT UNDER THE BEDROOM WINDOW. D'OH!
I bought the Genturi system, best money spent and I don't think it cost much more than building your own when you add in time spent "engineering" it. The problem is I can't use my awning when it's in use, so I am looking at re-routing the exhaust pipe to the rear of the coach. Where it should have been placed in the first place.
