Hmmm.... I use a suction cup to mount a GPS on a dual pane driver side window, but don't see how something attached to the flat glass outer surface can affect the edge seal.

I'll give the Genturi a thumbs up. I used one on my first class C and then on my class A. However now with my new Navion it won't work due to the generator tail pipe angle and the configuration of the back of the coach above the tailpipe.

Had one made from 1.25" tailpipe by a muffler shop. Fit fine, reached to top of MH, could be stored in pass-through basement compartment of MH.
It got hot after an hour of use, could not use anything to hold it vertical except the muffler clamp on the genset tailpipe. Muffler clamp loosened from heat, pipe fell over and chipped gelcoat on slide. I rushed out to correct things, grabbed pipe, burned hands and bent genset tailpipe.
Do yourself a favor and buy a Genturi system. Camper Ken has a used one for sale, and there is used one on escapees.com for sale. Amazon has them for <$120.
If you want my pipe, swing by Indianapolis, PM me and I'll meet you somewhere and make you a present.

I used a 1 1/4" EMT coupling and a 90 degree elbow to come off the exhaust pipe and point up and thin wall 3" or 4" sewer pipe for the stack. The sewer pipe comes with a fitting on one end to attach the next piece to, I just cut it in half & use that fitting for the middle attachment. The transition was made from a garbage disposal, the part that mounts in the sink to which I welded supports to allow airflow very similar to the commercial version and like Fire Up's. It works fine.

At the Perry Ga rally I bought aluminum downspout 10ft and a elbo all for $12. I called the tech for Onan to check it out, he said no problem.
