RAINY DAY PROJECT

Recommended Posts

It has been raining for days and days here in the Ouachita Mountains. We had a camping trip planned, but, instead we will try to catch up on stuff we got behind on. For example :

Barely visible in this low light photo, is the exhaust splatter from a cold started engine, the 3000 watt Yamaha mounted on the Oliver's tongue. The splatter is not bad at this point, but as the hours pile up, will likely get worse. :(

In the photo the exhaust tip is removed and a 45* tubeing of the same diameter is by it. We are looking at getting the 45* welded onto the tip to divert the splatter away from the coach body. ;)

When the generator project was planned we pointed the exhaust towards our direction on purpouse. Though the gen set is extremely quiet, we wanted the noisest spot around to be ours, so we would limit the use of it. 8-)

Tomorrow, a trip to the wire welder's shop. Then reassembling of the gen set and testing.

The tubeing that I had found on the work bench wasn't a metal that was compatable for welding to the exhaust tip. However the fabricator had just the right size and in a couple of minutes the curved attachment was made. The re assembly went well, everything fit and the test run was successful. No more splatter on the gel coat ! 8-)
