Lightbulb Slobber tube extension

Found a piece of thin wall pvc pipe, slit the end with 3 cuts to make it a bit thinner to force up the hose end, put it in about 4"

dropped it to an elbow then out just past the mud flap, went about 1800 miles looks good, painted it black.

cost $2-3

Extension

Looks great and will do the job, as long as you don't have a toad. This will just direct the spray of oil and dirt to the front of your toad. I even directed mine out the side and still sprayed the toad. New solution" spend about $300.00 and buy a Raycor Mist oil filtration system and install it. Would recomment their CV4501-08.

Can extensions have un-intended consequences?

You can also use an oil catch can from jegs. They are about 80 bucks.

Not sure what the price of tuna is these days but buy a can of tuna, eat the tuna, hang the can on the tube.....I prefer Chicken of the sea but others might work...
Seriously, a lot of slobber tube issues can be traced to overfilling the engine with oil. Dip sticks arent always calibrated right and even then not all engines are alike. I routinely run my Cummins 400 two quarts low and when it gets to the bottom of the ops range on the stick, I add back just 2 quarts, not the 4 recommended by the stick. Result -- little if any slobber......

I installed a flexible PVC hose on mine and routed it past the radiator. Have a very large mud flap to protect the vehicle plus a front mitten.

Prefer not to run my engine at a low oil indication.

I don't think the previous comment about running 2 quarts low is advocating that at all. The point is that dip sticks (tranny or engine oil) aren't always calibrated well. Also, engines often have a happy level not in agreement with dip sticks. So, if an engine blows out oil consistently until it is 2 quarts "low" then stops...why add more?

Sky Boss got it right!!!!! A diesel engine with 6-7 gals of oil isnt going to run at "low level" at 2 qrts down. If your engine is continously slobbering--its trying to tell you something--just listen.....
PS...that's why they call it an "operating range".......

I normally, during oil change, put in the exact amount of oil that the manual says the engine requires. I then start the engine and fill the oil filter and the rest of the engine's parts that need lubricating and then shut the engine down. I let it set for several hours and then check the dip stick. Where ever the oil is showing on the dip stick is now my full mark and I mark the stick with a small scratch from my hack saw.

During subsequent oil changes, this mark has never varied as I always put in the exact same amount of oil each time. Also, inbetween each oil change, I never need to add additional oil.

As for the slobber tube, I put a rubber tube extension on mine and routed it just beyond the radiator and CAC...never had an issue with oil on my toad.

I've also heard of people putting some sort of bottle on the end of the tube for the excess oil to drip into.

Yep, I use a peanut butter jar on the end of the slobber tube. I put mine on with a couple of elbows and clear poly tubing.

I extended the tube on mine to just under the back of the rear cap. I use a pill bottle that is about 3 inches tall and have painted it black. When I change oil I take that bottle and put it in solvent to clean it and after dry I spray it black again. I've put steel wool in the bottom of the bottle in hopes it will help collect moisture from the blow by. I'm not a supporter of reducing the amount of engine oil - I do understand the thoughts and reasoning but generally the more engine oil the better (if it stays in the crankcase)

Here is an interesting thread with pictures on the slobber tube. I put the bottle at the end of my tube along with the 2 quarts less of oil that the motor spits out when I fill it. since then no oil mist up the back of the coach.

Tired of a dirty flap
