I looked at the page that living 0n posted, Cummins DID NOT SAY it would increase back pressure,the said IT MAY increase it,they DID NOT say it would void the warranty,they said it MAY, I built my own genturi, you can find it under the heading of frequently asked questions,oh it has been checked by the Onan dealer that I built one for.

I use the Gen-turi and find it very helpful in diverting both the exhaust fumes and the exhaust noise to a point above the coach roof line where they dissipate harmlessly. No fumes, less noise, I love it...

Your view is so far out of the mainstream of thought on this issue why don't you give it up. I doubt you are winning any converts to your argument. Your position certainly has not encouraged me to make any efforts to call Onan and I rather doubt they have been flooded with inquiries due to your efforts.
I would think Cummins legal dept. is a little better staffed than Genturis. I havent looked at what the RVIA standard is for generator exhaust but Im sure the "2-8' breathing zone" isnt good enough.
If we are dry camping and using the generator, I have the Gen turi installed. Wouldn't be without it.
X2. We mostly do Boondocking, and always install our Gen-Turi System.
Sometime we will run the Generator all night long if its hot enough. Using the Gen-Turi System, keeps the fumes above the Motrohomes roof line, and we don't have to worry about any blow-back getting into our Motorhome.
As you can see in our Signature, we have more than enough Generator Power and then some. So some times we just use our Honda/s, as they are much cheaper to run for longer periods of time, and so much quiter.
We bought ours at Amazon.com. If you watch for sales, like we did, a few years ago, we only paid $102 for ours, with Free Shipping.
Use our Gen-Turi all the time.
I have found no cons.
I am not apt to believe it can create any significant backpressure.
And for $100 it wasn't worth my time to build my own.
Were I retired perhaps I'd think differently and do just that, as the design is simple.

I read that scare all the time, Never heard of it happening, Never had it happen, Never any evidence of it happening and several reasons I feel it can not possibly happen.
See story I post of how 2 hours without it sets off the CO alarm on this RV and 25 hours WITH the Gen-turi causes no such alarm. AC on or Off does not make a difference, It very simply does not happen, can not happen and thus will not happen. For one thing the top end of the Turi .. is too high up for it to happen less the hot exhaust gasses flow back DOWN onto the roof. (And that is not going to happen either).
Nothin adds excitment like something that is none of your business

Question about the Gen-turi. I looked at one at Camping World the other day and plan to buy it in a few weeks. I love the idea but i'm curious about one aspect which I have not seen covered. The Diesel Exhaust on mine is at the bottom of my RV and is tilted down. If you install a Gen-turi which then points up will it not collect rain water? If not then how is this prevented, I didn't see a cap on top of the Gen-turi stack or any preventive measure to ensure water doesn't get trapped. I have an Onan Generator which is pretty quiet I was curious how much noise dampening effect that the Gen-turi actually has.
