Terry,
If you weld the genny pipe at an upward angle in the stack, I don't think there will be any problem with back feed from the truck. Of course you would need some sort of flexiblity in the genny pipe to keep from breaking it.

That could/would create a vacuum in the generator exhaust pipe. If it is a gas generator it is possible to suck fuel through the carburetor under certain circumstances.

Good video Terry! I enjoyed it!

Raining, damp, wet outside,,, the progress continues getting the power ready, and you made a video. Great stuff.

When you stop in here at Site#1, we will use a 30 to 50 amp adapter, I have one.

You are correct Gordon, it could cause a vacuum, I didn't think of that, but since you need some flexibility, you could build a simple vacuum break into the system and eliminate the solid pipe at the same time.
Terry,
The video is great, it figures that the thing would be put together incorrectly, and you made a great recovery on that.

Best bet is to go look at how one works it does not connect/clamp to the generator exhaust there is an air gap.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Looks like a sound system. CO is lighter than air so should continue to rise once it exits the tube.

Terry, when I had Double Eagle build my 8/10 k diesel generator for my semi, I ask if they could run the exhaust into the stack on the truck? They told me no, but would run a separate pipe next to it if I wanted? I said no, I would figure it out, and they just ran it horizontal behind my sleeper and kicked it out to the side, slightly pointing down. I never did change it, and it worked fine, I was always concerned about the truck parked next to me, on the drivers side, but no one ever complained? I always tried to park so it would blow under their trailer, not the cab! Mine kicked out just in front of the drive tires. The genturi exhaust would be nice if you did a lot of Nascar dry camping, with close neighbors, but in the CG's, you are always plugged in?
Great video, by the way! I cringed when you started setting things on Eleanor's white table cloth, tho!!!!! Rail!

Good Morning, 48* as I'm typing this, cloudy but not supposed to rain again till tonight. had to do some running around this am but now just ordered the steel for the body, pick it up 10:00 Monday morning. Hope the weather holds for a little while longer, all that steel waiting to be built will be like a kid waiting for Christmas . I think most of the time I will be using the genny might be driving with the air on? or maybe topping off my batteries if I was boondocking, but I will have the solar on the TH ect. Have to keep all this in mind.
