Mounting Genturi with full length slideout

I have a Freedom Elite 24HE which has a full length slideout. The generator exhaust pipe comes out right at the corner of the house and there is only about 3 inches of wall from the corner to the slideout. I would like to install a Genturi (or generic home-built equivalent), but can not picture how the strain relief attachments could be mounted on the side of the camper.

Has anyone adapted an exhaust pipe extension to this type of configuration?

How much extension are you talking about? You may be able to just use a 90 degree bend or 6 inches of properly sized pipe to make it work. There are suction cup mounts you can get for the Genturi that will let you put them where it is convenient as opposed to being permanently mounted.

I use the suction cup mounting for the support arms of my Genturi also, and the 27K RV also has the generator exhaust near the rear corner. I put the suction cup mounts arranged vertically instead of the "typical" way of putting them side by side. It works fine.

I can't picture your layout exactly....
but yeah, I had a custom extension made by a local muffler shop.
The issue was the smallest diameter pipe they had was too big to do what I wanted to do, so
I used the adapter bushings that came with the genturi. They bent a short piece, approx 12 inches long, to approx a 45 degree angle, welded the bushings into one end. Expanded the other end
I took it home and drilled holes through each end so I could use a hitch pin bought from tractor supply to hold things in place....but the hitch pins aren't really needed.
