Gen-Turi

Has anyone installed a Gen-turi on the Voltage Unit? I tried the support brackets with double side tape that came with the unit(Gen-Turi) but they would not stay attached. I did clean surface with Wax & Grease Remover (DuPont 3812). Will the rivets that came with the unit hold to the siding?

I think I would try those cable tie mounts that the telephone people attach cables and pipes to a wall with. They are about a 1" square plastic tabs with double sided tape mounted on the back. On the top side they have a harness that you can feed a cable tie through to hold everything in place. If you need to remove later you can pry off the plastic and remove the glue with Goo Gone or my favourite Isopropyl Alcohol. Here's a picture Wire-Tie Mounts (10-Pack) : Tie Mounts | RadioShack.com

Note: I would also use the Isopropryl Alcohol to clean before installing the mounts. Test first in an area which can't be seen in case it removes paint or decals.

I use to small suction cups from Harbor Freight to attach it to the rig - no drilling, no tape, no velcro and no marks on the rig when they are off.

I was parked next to a coach tailgating last year that used a metallic dyer vent hose. He just slid one end over the tail pipe and clamped the other to the top of his slide. Seemed to work OK?

This is what I finely came up with I drilled two small holes at the end of each side of the handle. So I could use the bungee hooks

Do those of you with the gen-turi see results in less noise???

When we have our generator on - it is extremely noisy inside the coach. We would not be able to watch tv or sleep while it was on! Of course Dutchmen said it is "within normal"! Whatever the HXXX that means!

I'm surprised. Our generator, an Onan 5500, is very quiet. With it running directly under the bed, you can barely hear it. We have no trouble talking, watching TV or sleeping.

Exhaust on mine is very quite. Main noise is from the engine fan moving all that air to keep it cool.

Funny thing, i slept in the backend of many C-130s with no problem. Now the noise of the generator running below our bed makes it tuff for me too sleep. Before heading to Balloon Fiesta last year several of us invested in the Gen-turi with the intent of eliminating fumes since we would be sitting outside alot, and reducing noise. It did infact eliminate the fumes. I also noticed it was slightly quiter from outside, but did not notice much of a difference from inside.
