Yes Ian the exhaust (or flu gas vent) is located on the outside of the van below the end of the dinette window. It has a screw on cap when travelling or not in use. (i.e. vent is virtically below edge of window frame).
Must remember to remove cap before use.
I just had a look in my owners manual herte is what it says in this regard (I will quote verbatim so as to not misinterpret) :
"The outside surface must be exposed to wind from all directions and, if possible, there should be no trim strips or covers in this area, mount heater on an appropriate base if necessary.
The wall cowl is to be fitted in such a way that no tank nozzles or tank ventilation aperatures are located within 500mm of it. In addition, no air discharge apertures for the living area or window openings may be located within 300mm of it.
If installing the cowl directly underneath a window that will be opened, installation of an electric window switch is mandatory. The gas unit must automatically switch itself off using the Truma automatic shut-off facility if the window is opened."
Hope this helps.
