I believe in the 23TR, rear slide, the generator is in the middle on the chassis in the rear. I don't have all the answers, but something to consider, yes.
Yeah, I can see the generator exhaust pipe in the photos, but don't see an access door to get to the generator itself.

I just drove my new gemini 1200 miles and be advised: The chasis battery is under the drivers seat! If you smell rotten eggs pull off the road and get out of the vehicle. My battery shorted out in route and my unit became a rolling gas chamber. I thought it was the Diesel particulate filter replenishing until I started wheezing and finally pulled off. Has anyone had trouble with the hot water heater? Mine is either hot or cold and fluctuates between the two every ten seconds.

Yikes, that is terrible! Glad you figured it out. I am at about 4600 miles with no chasis battery issues (I did have problems with the 2 house batteries -- have had them replaced). I could not get water to heat at all and the dealership changed out the solenoid valve (other Gemini owners have reported valve problems on their tankless hot water heaters) but also mention other issues that can cause problems like constant water pressure.

We have the 24TX Gemini, which is on the Mercedes chassis. The chassis battery for it is also under the driver, though I believe its more under the floor. As far as the gerard water heater, it has some idiosyncrasies that take a bit of getting used to vs hot water from a hot water tank. One thing about its functionality is, it must have a minimum amount of water flow through it to maintain hot water, if it drops below, whatever that minimum is, the heat cuts off, and you have only cold water. I discovered that one morning in the shower, used the water cut-off on the shower head, and wound up finishing that shower with cold water. Leaving the water on, solves that problem. Otherwise its seems to work ok.
