2015 Mountain Aire Lost Exhaust Tip

Lost my exhaust tip - Newmar wants $2,400 does anyone know where to find the heat Sheild. I have the other parts.

Lots of discussions - I have researched for about 2 weeks now - sounds like everybody goes with a standard tip and ignores the heat shield?

Looks like something for a local fabricator.

I didn't think chrome plated gold would stand that much heat!

I washed my coach the other day and noticed the chrome exhaust tip was very loose. It is held on by three screws. All three screws were backed out and about to fall off. Tightened them up an thankful prevented another unforeseen cost from occurring.

The moral of the story; wash your coach once an while, as you might find something that needs fixing before its too late.

I think it's that expensive because it is from FL. I would put a diesel exhaust tip from Summit or Jeg's which would be less then a 100$. Need to measure to see if it is a 4 inch or 5 inch exhaust system. Should come with HD bracket to attach buy if it doesn't order that too.

I have found Newmar pricing to be either very reasonable (most of the time - thankfully) or obscene. That exhaust is the far side of obscene.
Any aftermarket diesel truck place has a 4 or 5 or 6" replacement. Under $100 for sure. I bought mine from Xtreme Diesel Performance:

MBT5085 MBRP Pro Series Diesel Exhaust Tip 74.99 -- 74.99
Universal: 3.5", 4" and 5" inlets - 5& 6" dia - 12" & 14 L
Style & Size: (T5085) Turn Down - 5" In x 5" Out x 14" L

Note that I have noticed that it will discolor after a while. Polishes right out. Not sure if that is because I still need to put on the slobber tube fix or if it is from heat. So, the original heatshield design is likely better...just not $2300 better.
