Exhaust muffler for 2000 alpine

Does any know who was the engine muffler supplier for alpine's (2000 in this case)? Mine is shot and I need a new one.

From my experience most manufactures use a standard muffler. Few, if any, use a specific custom made muffler. You should be able to find one at a NAPA store. Just take some good measurements, or if you can take the old one off and cart it down to the parts store.

Here's a post with part numbers/source Clicky, the PO of our coach got the one for ours at the same place.

I'll be replacing it with an Aero AT5050 soon for a bit better breathing.

The one in the top link is a drop in, the 5050 would take some fabricating.

If your muffler is shot you may also need to replace the header and exhaust pipe after 13 years. My local truck shop fabricated a new header using the old one as a model and I replaced the pipe with flexible tubing. I got the muffler from Ryder as mentioned in the linked thread above.

The 4040 Aero Turbine muffler worked well for us.

You will definitely need to replace most of the exhaust pipe.
Stainless muffler and flex pipe and it should last a long time!
Also, Johnny Blodgett @ JB Equipment Service does excellent work.

When I bought my 4040 18 months ago, which I like very much, Aero was out of business, but I got one on ebay for $100. What a deal!!
