Best solution for RV Genset noise and heat insulation?
« on: May 01, 2011, 06:59:56 PM »
I have searched and read many posts about insulating Generators, inc your "Box within box" system.
My Airstream Motorhome Generator is a 7kw Kohler twin cylinder gas motor, and in its own steel lined mid mounted compartment. The original insulation is crumbling/failed.

1/ Inner walls with one layer of MLV, and then one layer of SSP foam on top. I think I will have about 1" max before encrouching on the Genset minimum clearances.
Please advise on optimum thicknesses for each layer and if you have anything that is Shiny/wipe clean as the inner layer?
2/ What would you advise to go under the genset, on the steel tray for soundproofing?

3/ The exterior wall/door is pressed sheet Aluminum, and has Air intakes.
What should I use here?
