Unhappy Generator smell winnebago 24G

Hello everyone!
Considering purchasing a used 2013 24G and noticed that the diesel generator is located on the passenger side under the awning. Has anyone encountered a problem with the smell due to the location of the generator, like when having dinner outside under the awning while cooling off the cabin for sleeping? Just imagining the hypotheticals. Thx

Typically generator exhaust is vented on the driver's side for most coaches, in order to avoid your concern. Have you looked to see where the exhaust exits from under the coach?

Genset smell

The exhaust is in the rear on my 24G. Have not noticed a problem but only just bought it.

On our 2005 Winnebago Aspect, the generator exhaust exited under the sliding bedroom window, passenger side beneath the awning. Not very safe in my opinion. So I relocated the tailpipe so it exits out the rear of the coach. I had to buy an extension piece to do this.
I also have a Genturi exhaust extension which routes the exhaust up to the roof level. You just have to be sure not have any vents open.
On our generator, an Onan 4000, you can swivel the exhaust pipe by loosening the clamp which holds it to the exhaust manifold. I would imagine yours would be similar.

Is there any way to vent it "up" so that the exhaust comes out above the roof?

IMHO everyone who parks and runs the generator much needs a genturi. Quiet weather conditions will allow the exhaust to pudde around the motor home like a low cloud. Usually the CO detector goes off before I smell it.

GenTuri looks like a good solution!
