This is the generator to the RV.  We use this when we wander into places with no electricity.  It is also wonderful to have after a major storm has ripped out the major power lines to the resort, last year in VirginiaWe have not done that that often, but we do run the generator at least once a month to keep it in good working order.  

In the beginning, our RV was built too low to the ground and we drug our back end a lot.  This caused a lot of damage.  We had some major problems when we hit bottom once and we tore up the bottoms of the back four doors on the compartments and the exhaust pipe on the generator was ripped off.  

We have had the problem fixed and we do not drag any more.  But the generator exhaust pipe has never been fixed.  So Rog decided now was a good time.

This has taken so long because the pipe is an odd size and he had to do some creative thinking to get the job done.  Also it was broken off at the muffler and we got that welded.  He forced a galvanized pipe over the existing exhaust pipe and expoxyed these together. 
   Then it was simply a matter of getting the right lengths of pipe.
And of course it has to look pretty.  Job well done.

"I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now," said Rog.
