Thumbs up Generator exhaust

I noticed a few motorhomes last week at the track had the generator exhaust running up the side. I know its to keep fumes away from the ground and neighbors, but wont the air conditioner on the roof suck it in to the RV. Just wondering
Thanks Bob

At NHRA national events the Genturi's are mandatory, although rarely enforced. I have mine way up front by the DS window, my front AC unit is back about 8-10' from it. But I have a policy of not running the genny when we go to bed.............. JB

Your A/C is a recirculating system. It typically does not mix outside air with inside air, rather it simply recirculates the inside air.

RV roof air conditioners don't suck air from outside the RV and blow it inside...(they recirculate the inside air).
