Tail pipe?

Hope everyone is enjoying the last f the nice weather up here in the north east. While walking around a campground this past week I noticed most tiffin MH with d pushers all had pipe that came out and were turned downs. Mine just sticks out straight and even up. Was this an add on I missed back in 2014 or is this an aftermarket thing?

All of the newer diesel engines will "regenerate" and when they do, soot and hot particles will emit from the exhaust pipe. Most have a turned down tip to direct the soot to the ground rather than straight back. It would be wise to buy a replacement that turns down.

Ours on our 2014 Phaeton comes straight out, never had any problem with soot as the pipe runs clean, no residue of any kind on the MH.

Very true Gary

I must say at 48k miles the tail pipe looks like it was just installed, no soot no black zip. Just would like it to turn down. Where do you find a 4" turn down?

A lot of the big truck stops have chrome stores in them and you can buy them there but I'll tell you turn down pipes stir up a lot of dust in campgrounds I personally don't want that my 14 Phaeton is straight out

Along with my previous post, another reason to have a turn down pipe is if you're towing a car. Regardless of how "clean" you think you're exhaust is, it's still putting out particulates that stick to your car.

My reason is two fold one I also tow a trailer and it is unbelievable the amount of heat is transferred to the club side wheel of the trailer. Reason two. Have a idea that exhaust is being sucked into dryer exhaust port. During regen get a smell from some where.

My tip is turned down, and I plan of redirecting it more to the side as I have seen on others. There are two reasons for this. 1. We seem to travel in the rain. The car gets really dirty. The exhaust gas mixes with the rain, dirt and oil and mists it to the car. 2) The dust when driving makes a mess on the car, back of MH, and the engine compartment. Before our last trip, I tried to fix the problem, but the clamp was too rusty and I needed a new 4" clamp. As soon as I can get a new clamp, I am going to try and turn at least 50% of exhaust to the side and reduce some of the blowback.

You donít mention what MH you have but on ours we too experienced the regen smell. There are more holes for the smoke to enter than Swiss cheese.
I ended up foaming every opening I could find to no avail. Then I had the top off the rear closet box where the breaker panel is. I found a large opening about 12Ēx4Ē . It is the chase for all the wires. The chase runs to just about where the DPF is under the chassis. Of course that was open too. I made a cover for the hole in the closet box and foamed it too. So far the smell had been reduced to almost nothing.

The pipe on my 02 KSDP extended straight out. I had a muffler shop cut a few inches off and weld a 4" dia curved exhaust pipe directing the exhaust towards the ground. The toad is much cleaner than it use to be. Black exhaust on a white truck get's ugly quickly.

Not familiar with your unit but there has to be an opening near your breaker panel to run all those wires and if itís near the engine compartment you will probably find that exhaust is getting in. From reading a lot of posts on the exhaust smell, itís a job to find all the possible entry points
