Gen-Turi System Pipe Extension Needed

Moved my Gen-Turi system to our new (to us) coach and find I need about 12 inches more pipe to clear the roof of the coach. Thought about using PVC but thought maybe someone knows if Gen-Turi sells short extensions or maybe there's another source or idea for extending the stack about 12 inches. Thanks.

At the top of a Gen-turi PVC will work fine, it's cool enough by then that you won't have any issues at all.

How cool is it:

One of the alternatives I"ve seen at some events is simply bent exhaust pipe.. I shudder when I think of some kid brushing up against this and getting 2nd to 3rd degree burns cause those pipes get HOT and I mean HOT

But the Gen-Turi stack.. Well I've run my 5500 watt generator for over 24 hours and with the generator still running I can pick up and hold the top two sections, unhook the shock cords, using pliars pull the lock pin and using a tool knock the elbow out of the generator adapter. (or using my shoe, heavy leather shoe)

Afte 25 hours of operation it is slightly warmer than bathwater to the touch. I have taken hotter showers. If a child brushes up against it he might feel warm, but 1st degre burns are way hotter than that pipe gets.
Home is where I park it!

Made my "genturi" from pvc sewer pipe. Heat in the stack has not been an issue.

deandec: That's exactly what I wound up using. The expanded collar fits snugly over the exhaust pipe and is light weigh.

Richard and others,
Gen-turi sells an optional 18" extension piece that will get your pipe up over the top of your roof. I have one and it just did the trick for me. Initally my setup was too short and close to the side of my slide topper awning. No anymore. By the way this is the one I use on my Hydro Hot system..... I also have one for my genset.......
