Genturi for Aqua Hot Exhaust

We have our first coach with Aqua Hot. Very nice however the diesel exhaust for it is aimed at whomever is parked next to us. In some RV parks, sites are tight.

So I am wondering how many folks with Aqua Hot units use a genturi type exhaust to direct the gases upward.

Good question. I have wondered about that issue but have never seen anything on an AH exhaust. Have to be some hi-temp materials with a lot of heat shielding. Don't think it'd be a good idea. Since the AH runs far less than a generator, maybe it isn't considered a problem.

Unless you're sitting next to one and it's running. Definitely not a neighbor friendly system.

I have been using one for two years now without any problems. I added a 45 degree angle at the top to try and keep any soot off the roof. Also, wear gloves when assembling or tearing down! Unless there is high wind I cannot smell any fumes so neighbors are happy.

Is it the "regular" Genturi product?

We've been using ours for two and a half years without a problem. Much has to do with when you use it. We use it for heat, but only when it's cold to use our portable heaters, that means its too cold for the neighbors to be sitting out. We use it for hot water only at night...again, nobody sitting out in the dark...no problem.

My partner has a 45' foretravel and my 42' dynasty the ahot comes out level with ground about center of coach between slides. We went to the local muffler shop had a smooth 90 put in 22 inches out and put a 45 away and to the rear 6 inches from the top. the pieces of pipe he had were 7 foot long. We had to put a fence post in the ground to keep it upright. Now the guy next to us does not complain at all about why do you run your diesel all the time. There is almost no smell just a little steam in very cold conditions. Cost was $25.00 for both...
