Default how many use the gen set and hate the side exhaust?

i did,,,,,,,,,,,,,made a stack which was a pain in the aXX

so i did a permanent stack on the pass side------

last weekend i moved the sp side exhaust to the ft of the unit in ft of the zipdee awning arm..


it dont block the mirror in ft of it and painted it grey as that is what i had.......sitting here and thinking that is what other men need to do..

no more add on stacks and other stuff..

its the same level as the zip dee awning so if someone is there burning themselves.......they are toooooooo close to my bus IMO.....

pictures are forthcoming......love it no more stack and i don't think it looks like a school bus either!!!!!!

buy a flux core Harbor freight welder and live a little!!!!!!!!!!!!!

pictures~~~~~~~ i could have used smaller pipe but 2" works for me gotta paint the stuff a little but tested this weekend 15 hrs and all is good

thanks

I think your 'Bird has an exhaust that has a cone shaped coupler that the generators muffler tailpipe slips into when the generator drawer is closed and sometimes that cone goes out of alignment allowing diesel exhaust to escape out directly under the bus, that may need adjusting.

You may be able to see it in action by looking under the bus from the side while someone else moves the generator out and then back in.

Woody,
Can't wait to see the pics of the exhaust mods. I am still undecided as to what approach to take with my genny exhaust. Been putting it off since acquiring coach. I need to get it off my TO DO list

The PO of my bus had the exhaust coming right out of the side next to the generator. Maybe he was trying to be kind to the neighbors while he fumigated himself?

Instead of routing it back to the other side (Drivers) I ran it to the rear of the coach. Sound and exhaust are now pretty tolerable to neighbor and ourselves. The exhaust exits between the rollers and the hitch.

Question Woody. I think there are potentially some water condensation issues with the pipe being that long. I made up a stack for the Napper and while it was removable it was similar in design. Have you experienced that (water accumulating at the bottom of the pipe) as it makes the curve back into and under the bus. Maybe a diesel generator is different. Might be hot enough to burn off the water. I haven't made a stack for the Bella, likely should. Not sure how much it helps but I guess it does help some.

John,
I think you need to drill a hole in the low point, not very big, to allow the condensation to drain off. I suppose you could put a small petcock there if you wanted, but then you have to remember to open and close it.

I kind of like the 2" exhaust pipe sticking out from under the side. Particularly when people come up and say " I would have thought that it would have a bigger tailpipe?"
