If that is water line or gas line it is too small...but idea good.

Look for larger line and use a reducer to fit it.

Maybe standard water pipe to get above genny then elbow or other creative thing.

Emt conduit may work as well.

That is 3/4 copper so the I.D. is the same as the I.D. coming out of the muffler.....but I would imagine the corrugation causes too much turbulence. It was a "day-before-the-trip" deal. I'll find some smooth bore pipe and like you said, go larger when I get time.

Forza 36G Mudflaps

Noticed some gravels and road scum being slung onto the bottom of the propane tank and engine air cleaner assembly at the rear of the coach. I wanted a way to deflect as many of them as possible to prevent damage to the underside if I could.

Took two 12x24" rubber semi mudflaps and cut them to fit the areas behind the wheels. Aluminum strips and angle pieces work to support the flaps, and 5/16" bolts mount them just fine. On the rear flaps, since they mount on the front wall of the cabinet behind the wheels, I used black silicone around the mounting holes to keep water and dirt out.

Works fine until the A/C unit kicks on. Apparently the back-pressure is affected too much and it was a failure. I'm sure some smooth bore pipe would work but I was really disappointed. The corrugated copper is the first thing that I saw that would thread right on. Back to the drawing board.
look into building something similar to a Gen turi system

The manuals for most generators limit the length of the exhaust pipe because of back pressure, even when the pipe is smooth wall. I would look at least double the diameter for an exhaust extension.
