They are made out of pvc and don't get hot, maybe warm by the base. My exhaust also is like yous, so i get a couple of those suction cups with hooks and rig small bungees in a couple of spots.. works for me.. Rarely use mine unless we are at the races where the spots are small, although I never leave home without it ,just in case..

Remember to watch out for yourself, if you're next to someone using a genset without one, be prepared to talk to them...you don't want to go to sleep in your rig with your neighbor running theirs.

I made my own out a 90° metal pipe (1 & 1/2") connected to the exhaust pipe of the genset. Then I fashioned a metal coupler to three metal straps to a 4" PVC coupler. There is a 2" gap between the metal 90° portion and the start of the PVC. The metal straps connect to a PVC coupler. The next section of PVC pipe (4') is fitted into the coupler, then another coupler to 2" pipe and so on. The pipe gets warm, but not hot. Also use suction cups and bungees as mentioned. Rests next to the RVs side and exhausts above the roof.

Gen-turi, or something similar, is recommended, especially if you boondock a lot. The are required at some venues as some deaths have resulted from close packed RVers running their gensets. Neighbors have died. I remember 3 deaths last year at a big rally.

They do get hot to the touch but not dangerously so. It will work find with your configuration.

Would not leave home without ours...it goes on every time we stop if we are staying more than a couple of hours...

We attach ours to the side of your fifth wheel using 3" suction cups (available at Walmart) and bungee cords...

I use mine primarily at NASCAR races and it works really well. As others have stated, it does not get hot.

I've made several for less than $17.

Use one all winter in Key West. The metal part gets hot, the plastic gets warm.

They should be a requirement in every campground where generators are used, especially diesels where the gen exhaust goes right in the neighbor's door.
