NO - although I did install a sealed box around generator storage area to keep gasoline fumes out of trailer.

I have run it for a few seconds while still in trailer in the box, to demonstrate how quiet it is and how ECO mode works. BUT to actually use it, it MUST be extended out AND turned to direct exhaust gases AWAY from trailer.

I've done some stupid things, but I'm not dumb enough to try to use generator while still inside the trailer basement.

I installed a Generac 5500G genset in the fwd storage comp on our cf27rl. Required lots of insulation and transfer switch but, after all done, very happy. Also installed another roof air over bedroom. Now when we boondock or just need that nap on the road. Life is good!

Here are some photos....

When I want to use the genset, I just pull it out and let it rip. When not in use, I disconnect it from the trailer's wiring but when I kinow I'll be using it, I hook it up and I can
have power in rest areas, parking lots, etc. I've had no exhaust problems, even though the genset is directly below the bedroom where the CO detector is located. I've never had a peep out of it. I have a fan which I can hook up to both cool the generator and blow any possible exhaust away from the trailer...just in case.

This particular genset will power 1 AC and just about everything else except the microwave. When I want to use the microwave, I just shut the AC off while using it. Hair curlers are also a problem.
