Hi everyone.
I have a Class "C" motorhome with a 4000 QP Generac generator . I have gotten a few rude comments when I run it in campgrounds because of the noise. I love the gen set, it starts every time, runs smoothly and hasn't given me any problems, but I have to agree it's a little loud. My question is, can I buy a better muffler or something to quieten it.
Thanks for any help you can give me

Not knowing how those generators are built, I have two questions.

First - is the noise primarily from the exhaust or from the mechanical parts in the engine?

Second - how is the exhaust routed? Where does the exhaust discharge - near the ground or up high?

Once I understand the answers to the above, I may have a couple of ideas. If you let me know the whole model number as it's printed on the tag in the generator, I could look up some information on it.

Near the ground....the gen set is built in and is encased to reduce noise

Serial # 4366504
The only other # is the item # 0047000


Thank you so much for your help
