generator under bed

Do you sleep okay with a generator under the bed in the Winnebago Fuse 23T?

Personally, I would never go to sleep with the generator running. You may never wake up!

Agreed. Bad idea. But regardless, I wouldn't sleep well with a generator anywhere on a small class C let alone right under me.

If I have my genny running its because I have either the a/c or heat running. In either case I don't have windows open. That and there's a CO alarm in every RV.

If you're that concerned about the exhaust you can always add a genturi kit.

I have seen the effects of carbon monoxide up close and personal. It is very dangerous. To each his own, but I stand by my comment.

I don't have an answer for your specific question and all the recent responses don't address it either. You may want to repost this in the Winnebago forum to see if get better exposure to your MH.

I attach a 4ft pipe so the exhaust vents away from the MH. Cheap Genturi. Support it with some rocks while boondocking. I would and do sleep with it running if the AC is needed. I had a problem with my brand new Fleetwood 31m with the exhaust leaking in through the slide. I bought the Genturi and that solved that problem.

I have a Fuse 23a. Running the generator in the Fuse is rather noisy. Can it be done and slept through? Yes. We have run it while taking naps at a rest stop.

I would suggest having the Cummins resonator installed to get rid of the high pitched noises and make the generator sounds a low rumble (it is like a muffler). Then it will be much easier. You may also want to get some noise canceling headphones. The noise without the resonator is about like sleeping on a prop plane. Something I can do but my wife can't.

I run my generator under my bed while sleeping on hot nights.

I also have a often tested, funtioning CO detector.

I would worry more about a nearby RVs generator blowing exhaust gas at my MH.

I ran my on board gen set in my 5th wheel all the time, it was under the bed. I always verified the CO detector was working first hand though.

I'm be seen the effects too.

You know that the incidents of CO poisoning from propane furnaces in RV's FAR outnumbers the people who'v had a problem with the generator exhaust right?

You DO have furnace in your RV don't you?

My generator is back in the bedroom area and Im a very light sleeper but I put the genruti up if I need to run my ac or heat all night and Ive not had an issue sleeping through it as it acts as a white noise .

I have two CO2 detectors. One in my bedroom area , one up by kitchen .

What is the difference between sleeping and being awake, have to do with CO poisoning ?

CO is the silent killer, it will get you during the day, while sitting in a closed up RV.

You don't have to be sleeping, it will do that for you.

The only chance you have is a CO detector.
