Exhaust Pipe Location

I had to put some new mufflers on my 1988 Pace Arrow. The original mufflers on the dual exhaust had blown out around the back seams.

The exhaust shop did a nice job and even put a new pipe on my generator. My tips were old so they added new chrome pencil tips and it looks what I'd call "period-correct." I like it.

My question is, do the exhaust pipes need to stick out past the motorhome body into the airstream? The original location of my dual pipes, including that of the generator stuck out further. After the shop was done, I noticed the pipes are about even with the body of the motorhome and the generator is actually about 2" short of the body.

Is it possible this could pull some fumes into the coach from underneath?

Personal opinion is mixed on this.. The main engine exhaust at least flush with the motor home body, slip stream and pressure will get rid of the exhaust.

The generator however needs to extend ABOVE the roof line.. Yes ABOVE the roof line. .Two ways to do this.. I have read of folks who did a custom exhaust stack that did just that.. However the easier way is made by Camco.. The Gen-Turi

NOTE: this only applies when parked,, When you are hauling backside down the freeway.. The rules are the same for the generator as for the main engine.

NOTE also,, Motor homes tend to be 8'6" wide not counting things that stick out

I'd want to limit "Stick outs" as much as I can
Home is where I park it!

Thanks guys, good advice. I just finished driving 300 miles. I think it's all okay. The chrome tips were welded on and sit just about flush with the body. I'm going to leave it like that. The gennie....well, I did not know about the Gen-Turi...I'll be reading.
