GenTuri RV Generator Exhaust System
As a new RV owner, one of the first things that you should buy before football and tailgating season in the Genturi RV Generator Exhaust Venting System
Remember, the only rule of RV Tailgate Life: Don’t F it up! For many football tailgates, RVs are packed in head to toe and back to back. The carbon monoxide and other gasses that the generator produces not only smell bad, but could be fatal to you and other neighboring tailgaters. The Gen-Turi redirects exhaust from your generator to above the RV, while also reducing noise from your generator. Do yourself and your neighbors all a favor by installing the Gen-Turi on your tailgate RV.
Installation is relatively simple and does not require any special tools. The Gen-Turi comes with most of the adapters needed to connect to your exhaust pipe. A few bolts to secure the adapter and you are almost done. Place first the bottom section (the one with the metal elbow) on the exhaust pipe and secure with the included D-clip pin. Then add the middle and top sections. Finish installation by adding the bungee with the S-hooks to the lower section, then placing the eye straps in the proper location to keep the Gen-Turi in an upright position.
Breaking down the Gen-Turi after the tailgate is over is quite simple – remove the top and middle sections, then undo the D-clip pin and remove the bottom section. Place everything in the included carry bag. For just $119 it is easy to follow the only rule of RV Tailgate Life.
On those hot summer tailgates, you’ll be running your generator all the time just to keep the air temperature at a decent sleeping temperature. So when you get up on a Sunday, breaking down the tailgate leaves you with a hot exhausts pipe, not to mention the oil residue all over your hands. Get yourself a pair of these high temperature gloves to protect your hands, both from the heat and residue. You’ll thank me later.
It Happened To Me
Going into the first tailgate, I had no idea what the Gen-Turi was. Sure, I’d been around the RV tailgate for awhile, but there are some things you just don’t find out until you are there doing it yourself. A fellow tailgater told me to get the Gen-Turi ASAP. I listened and by the next home game, had it up and working.
Fast forward to the next season when my tailgating neighbor got a new fifth wheel RV. His generator was near the front. Due to our parking arrangements, his exhaust blew directly into my RV and into the bedroom. Fortunately, I had a carbon monoxide detector (get the 10 year worry free battery version) in the bedroom for just this situation. We were able to temporarily move the RVs around to provide plenty of fresh air. By the next game, my neighbor had his own Gen-Turi and we all slept better knowing that it was less likely to be a problem going forward.
