Insulation ideas for generator area
 
I was wondering what people are using for soundproofing their generator compartment/area. Right now my genny is mounted to a platform under the bus and I was looking for some ideas on making it a little quieter.

Thanks'
Dan

Give these guys a try. It seems to be made to oeder. I have not tried it yet but will as soon as I get my generator mounted.

do a search on you tube, there are a few good ideas, including the one I am going to try, putting a muffler on a coleman 5k

The fatmat seems a bit expensive. Thanks for that link. Smitty, I might look into the duct liner. Thanks guys.

My biggest problem has been vibration, any tips with cutting down the vibration that comes from generators? I just padded the daylights out of the chamber with my generator with insulation for noise. It is mounted with a rubber buffer between chamber floor and the generator body. What you think?

I've seen a few mounted on valvesprings with the generator mounted to the spring with a rubber well nut.
