Gen-turi Generator Exhaust System
Gen-turi Generator Exhaust System
I’ve used this product for over 5 years – I go to alot of NASCAR races and the sites are very close – I’ve had fellow campers ma. ke comments their generators make more noise than mine and mine is right next to their door. It also gets the fumes up and away from under the RV and away from neighbors. I didn’t want to secure the straps which hold the exhaust system against the RV so I bought some car dent pullers (small suction cups) and I attach the straps to the suction cups. I can remove them from the RV when I’m not using and only place them on the RV when I need them. Again great product.
The Gen-turi package does not include a 1 5/8 adapter to connect the generator exhaust to the Gen-turi. Unfortunately, my 8kW. generator exhaust requires this adapter. The cost of this adapter is almost 25% of the total cost of the original Gen-turi. Before you purchase the Gen-turi, check your generator exhaust diameter! If it is greater than the 1 1/4, you will need to purchase this expensive adapter. Plus, this adapter is very difficult to find. Also, it requires you drill holes in the side of your RV to install a couple of eye bolts. I am going to try to use suction cups to stabilize the unit. I don’t want to drill holes into the side of my motorhome. This product is a nice idea, but check to see if you will need this expensive adapter and think about drilling holes in the side of your RV.
We love it! Before we had this, we could not sleep through the night without the carbon monoxide detectors going off after a few. hours of running our generator. I know many who disconnect their detectors, because of this, and I think this is very risky. The exhaust system is easy to install, helps reduce noise, and most importantly keeps deadly fumes out of our RV and others too. I am so glad we purchased this and wish all RV owners would get one. I highly recommend it!
I don’t know if this has happened to anyone else, but when we returned from our first trip using the Gen-turi Generator Exahust Sy. stem, our 1 yr old generator in or 1 yr old motor home stopped working. Still runs, but does not produce power to the RV. Currenty in the process of attempting to getting it fixed. No one seems to know what is wrong with it. Also, we cleaned the areas very well before applying the hooks with the sticky tape, however they did not last the 5 day trip.
Bought the Gen-Turi last year and used it for the first time this summer at Lime Rock Park. The campers next to us were in a tent. and using the Gen-Turi kept the exhaust fumes out of their tent. Like others we bought suction cups to mount ours. I bought 4 so I added an additional mount for the top of the pipe so it didn’t hit the motorhome. I cut a foam block as a spacer for the top mount and used bungee cords. I am now thinking about getting an extra one for my Aqua Hot burner exhaust.
The basic concept and design is well thought out, however the overall length is about 8 inches too short. As a result, the end o. f the stack rubs against the side of our motorhome. To stop rub damage to the side of our rig, I tie strapped 1 inch foam around the top of the stack. Other than that, the system works great. It packs nicely into a bag that is easily stored. Tip: wear goes when taking the stack apart, otherwise, you will get your hands black from exhaust carbon.
