Generator noise and cooling mod

On our 2015 30.1 the 4000 owan gen is just behind the driver seat. In an effort to quiet, just completed wrapping the entire gen exhaust with header heat wrap. Completely changed the noise level to about 10 db quieter, sounds more mellow and after running an hour was still able to put my hand on it with no burn. Also wrapped the gen gasline. Takes 50ft roll
Also in an attempt to cool the gen built an added an elec radiator fan to back of gen with thermostat to try an pull more air. Yet to testClick image for larger version

On our motorhome generator is right under the bedroom you can't sleep in there at night if it's on at all too loud I'm going to try what you're saying see if that helps our situation

Wont be a miricle cure but for $15 it will reduce noise a tad. It takes that harsh exhaust noise an seems to mellow it. On ours we have 8 ft exhaust pipe. Ace 30.1
