i made my Genturi before our first trip two years ago. Have never used it or the gen-set travelling, but testing went very well. I bought two big, clear suction cups from a sporting supply store (boating stuff), hooked a short bungie cord to each end and secured it around the 3" pipe about 4' up. Similar to Packer's. I keep the bungie taught and the pipe away from the coach with a leftover 3" piece of PVC with one end fish-mouthed (and horizontal ike a "T") at the pipe side and the flat-end resting on the coach side hooked over the bedroom awning hold-down anchor. I can't have the awning out with the Genturi up anyway. I can sucker it to the window or wall panel. It works, and it all cost about $38.
a fun little project, but I should have terminated the end of the curved metal pipe closer to the opening of the 3" PVC (mine is about 1" below) since the exhaust is not that hot by that point and the air the exhaust flow sucks in cools it WAYYY down. That is a minor thing and an adjustment would be easy. IF I EVER USE IT...

I bought a Genturi set up a while back and I am just now getting around the getting it set up. I am going to assume that most of you that use Genturi or any similar set-up are not riveting the strap mounts into the side of your RV. I have no interest in doing so.
So how did you secure it? Suction cups on the window somehow? Find something on the roof to secure it to? Any ideas? If you have any pics, I would love to see them.
Thanks in advance!
I used the included mounts and double sided 3M adhesive. No rivets. I think they look good and I'm a nut about those sort of things. Nice clean looking install, with or without the Gen-Turi attached.
I also had to order the 1 3/4" exhaust adaptor from Camco. I was pleasantly surprised that it and the included U-Bolt were chrome plated rather than the raw steel finish of the stock adaptor. It matches my chrome generator exhaust pipe nicely.
