Hello,
I am a new fifth wheel owner a Redwood 36RL & am very pleased with this coach. I had the factory wiring & transfer switch there for a generator, so I decided to have Camping World of Syracuse, NY install a Onan 5500 LP genset & Splendide W/D all in one machine. I contacted Redwood since they install generators at the factory to get suggestions on generator model & parts & ordered the same exhaust that RW uses & had it shipped to Camping World. The exhaust was 140" long so I had to have Onan cut the pipe down in 3 pcs. to make it UPS shippable & (3) exhaust hangers, Onan even marked the pipe were it connects & put in wedges. I explained all of this to the service writer at Camping World. The coach was supposed to be there for 1-2 days but ended up being 2 weeks. The transfer switch was bad that RW paid for under warranty.
I picked up the coach yesterday & see they backed into something & dented my ladder pretty good & the exhaust exits right out the driver side parallel to the front about 4" back under my bedroom slide. They threw away the two hangers they did not use & the other two exhaust pipes. I also had to pay $100.00 for shipping to get the exhaust to Camping World due to the size for a $32.00 exhaust. My question is does anyone have photos they could post or email me of their factory installed generator exhaust, so I can see where mine needs to exit ? I called RW today & they say it needs to exit between the two slides so the fumes won't come into my bedroom slide underneath since the seals are not airtight at all. I did see photos on here from Dave & Ginny which were very helpful thank you

I would be very ANGRY!

I actually didn't realize Redwood would send the exhaust. I went through a lot of time trying to find someone local that would fab the exhaust, but the small diameter turns most away, even Camping World. For now, I just ran it the same way your guy did, straight out the side. I'll have to figure out how to get it done the correct way someday.

I get my new Redwood Friday. I would be happy to send you pics of the gen exhaust if you can wait that long.

I have the 31SL not the 36RL but by your description that is about where my exhaust comes out. The coach is at the dealer right now for warranty repairs so I do not have a picture. Edited by: KenM

I have the 36 RL with factory installed gen set and the exhaust comes out just past the bedroom slide even with the right side of the water heater cover. Hope that helps.

If this link works, here is a picture of my exhaust with a chrome tip.

How can you have 140 in. of exhaust pipe? Your generator sits in the front under the hitch and the pipe goes down a few inches and goes about 4 ft to the drivers side. On mine I will make an aluminum pipe to make a 90 degree turn and go just forward of the bedroom slide and then install a gen turi pipe to carry the exhaust up and away.These kits are available at camping world for $130.00. Any time I dry camp you have to use one of these so you don't send your exhaust to the neighbors.

So my previous post didn't work, but it looks like this one does. Here is a picture of my genny exhaust with a chrome tip on my 36RL.

Unfortunately, this is not the first Camping World horror story. After our experience, I vowed never to have work done there again. It was about 2 years before we even shopped there again.

Here is your pick C&D.L




Isn't it weird the way the exhaust knows to go straight up between the slides
