My coach is a side radiator and it appears yours might have a rear radiator. There are differences in the effect between the 2 styles.


Man, I wish. mine is a gasser. but thanks for the compliment. I looked again and I guess with the vents in the generator compartment it looks like a DP.

Ah, I should have looked closer. Thanks for the clarification. There would be quite a difference in air flow at the rear between the 2 setups.

Yes we will see. That is the only negative I can see. But since I was having generator issues before and now that I have vented the generator I don’t think it will be an issue. It’s not like the entire driveline/exhaust is enclosed. I’ll find out as soon as it gets hot out and I have the generator running with the AC on.

With the engine up front you won't experience any differences in cooling as some of us with rear engine coaches can. The air dumps right there under the bumper for us while yours has the entire length of the chassis to disperse.

That makes sense. I know I have had my outside temp monitor in one of the regular storage compartments in the middle of the coach and those temps will see 120deg on a regular 80+ degree day.
