Here's my question: My Journey has a chrome tip on the generator exhaust (which is welded on). The OD of this tip is 1.75". The largest adapter Gen-Turi has available is 1 5/8". Won't fit over the chrome tip.

I would hate to 'hack it off' due to it's good appearance.

Anyone come up with a solution on how to connect the exhaust off the larger chrome tip to the Gen-Turi exhaust pipe??

I had the same problem. I ended up sliding the genturi elbow inside the exhaust pipe. I drilled it to allow the cinch pin to go through both. It is a tight fit and if it leaks, you cannot tell it.

I guess a reducer adapter won't do you any good?

I would go to my nearest muffler shop that has equipment to build exhaust parts ... (Midas, Car-X, etc)

they will have machines to build you an adaptor that will slip over your genny exhaust and join up with your exhaust extension ...

they have machines that heat pipe then enlarge and/or bend it ....

My first level search did not show up any reducer-adapters for these sizes.

Anyone know what the temps are for the diesel exhaust? Someone suggested to me to use radiator hose as an adaptor. My guess is that radiator hose is good for 250+d and exhaust is closer to 400+d. My guess. Anyone know?

Good suggestion on the muffler shop.

What hose do the use in service bays to connect vehicle exhausts to outside vents. Looks like a heavy duty radiator hose but must have a silicone base.

Did you call Gen Turi? They may have a suggestion based on their own R&D.

I have the Genturi also. I like the idea of slipping the adaptor inside your exhaust tip. If it is that big you will not hinder the exhaust and it will look good.

I did what has already been suggested. I went to a muffler shop and had an adapter made up to fit around the outside of the chrome tip. It works well and if I remember correctly it only was about $10.00 for the adapter.

I did some measuring and bought an adapter at Autozone. Drilled a hole through it to fit the pin on the GenTuri. Also bought an exhaust clamp and put wing nuts on it so I can hand tighten the clamp after I slip the adapter over the chrome tip. My total parts cost was a little over $3.00.

I would be concerned about slipping the adapter inside the eshuat pipe. You are effectively makeing your exhust pipe a smaller diameter, which will rise the back pressure(not sure how much). I don't know if it raises the back pressure enough to cause a problem but why chance it when other inexpensive solutions are aviable.

I bought a ready made adapter at Advanced Auto, drilled a hole in it to take the Genturi Pipe.
Works great cost about $2.00

I made my own generator exhaust extension. Uses 4" PVC pipe, some galvanized pipe pieces, a piece of 1" square aluminum stock and other inexpensive items. Total cost of about $18.00. Doesn't require drilling on the MH and slips right over the generator tail pipe and is fully supported by the awning rail. Is not affected by high winds and does not put a strain on the generator tail pipe supports.

I took my chrome extension off, it was held in place with two tack welds. The exhaust pipe was just inside it, out to the very end of the chrome tip. Some varefull cutting with a dremel tool and cutting wheel took it off in about three minutes. Then I used one of the standard fittings to mount the Genturi adapter.
