Ned, your exhaust should not be routed upward. There is the possibility of exhaust fumes entering the vehicle through an open window or a leaky window, door, or vent openings--which can endanger the occupants' lives. For your safety, we strongly recommend against using these extensions.

The problem is that at alot of dog shows we do, they INSIST on vertical exhaust. Don't want exhaust going into someone else's set-up.

I'm terrible at posting photos so MonacoMama posted the above.

The first photo is a plate I made that holds the "dog eared" bracket. The second is the bracket.

I wanted to support the Genturi without attaching anything to the outside of the motor home. The bracket is a wood gate hinge that fits in the opening between the two door panels. I welded a length of metal to the hinge. I put a u-bolt on the Genturi and then drilled two holes in the bracket and used wingnuts to secure the two together.

I welded the exhaust tip provided by Genturi onto my exhaust and then adjusted the the u-bolt so it took the pressure off of the exhaust pipe when everything was connected.

Finally, I wanted to retain a chrome tip so I found one that fit over the Genturi tip and made it so it was just a slip on and off set-up when the Genturi was not in use.

YES....I understand about exhaust fumes! Thanks for your concern.

...... Unfortunately, if this entire discussion gets moved to the "Quick Tips & Mods" posts, it'll lose a lot of its unique visibility in with the rest of the great tips/mods. I put a 'bookmark' post in there to reference this discussion. Hope that helps.

LOL, make me one too!! Same size and colour!! Great Idea, DD! This past weekend while we were sweating to the oldies and spending the kid's inheritance, we had to runt he genset for hours at a time. So did the neighbor. As with yours, ours vented downward, and we still got a lot of fumes in the RV. I like your design! Is the main shaft going upward insulated?

Jestme13 09-06-2007 06:55 PM

Excellent project DD, http://irv2.infopop.cc/images/thumb.gif. I'm gonna ck out my set up in the AM and see if I can copy your design, or do something close. Back in the OLD days Onan had a problem with people tampering with their exhaust designs, simply because longer exhausts were burning up pistons and valves. not so now with the Genturi design, of course Onan will still not endorse the design, I guess it's a liability thingy. http://irv2.infopop.cc/images/oboy.gif

Has anyone used the Genturi where your Generator exhaust is just below your slideout? I assume you would have to extend the pipe to clear the slideout? Just wondering if anyone has done this or seen one.

Great job on the bracket modification. With the design of the Genturi, the way it pulls in fresh air with the exhaust, I can't see how it would be a problem. Keep the windows closed on that side when it is running, should be OK.

Sixpack98 03-24-2008 05:50 PM

Don,
Good job. GREAT idea supporting the tube with the hinge, very clever. My doors open differently than yours but I did modify the door behind the curb side basement that opens the same way and might be able to copy you again. Thanks for the post.

BTW, how many hours did you spend polishing those wheels??? http://irv2.infopop.cc/groupee_commo.../icon_razz.gif

That's a great setup!

Nice bracket DipD!
Right now I'm putting the support hooks on the molding lip between the top of the drivers side wall and the electrical compartment. I'm using rubber tape on the hooks so they won't chip the paint. I just havn't had the courrage to drill holes in the side of my coach for the hook eye brackets. I actually used suctions cups until an rver pointed out that the Genturi had fallen over onto my slide. http://irv2.infopop.cc/groupee_commo...s/icon_eek.gif http://irv2.infopop.cc/images/scared.gif. The suction cups came loose while it was running. Luckily there was no harm done. I just had to wipe off some carbon from the top of the slideout side. Thank goodness the exhaust had cooled down enough before it hit the paint! So yes, it doescool down.

I like your idea of having no wieght on your exhaust pipe.

I can't answer that...but I can tell you we were probably there about 90 minutes after DipD had pulled into the RV park...and he already had his windshield spotless after driving at least 7 hours http://irv2.infopop.cc/images/sign0098.gif
