Exhaust tip

Has anyone ever turned their exhaust tip to a different angle? Mine is pointed down at the ground near back corner, my frustration is after stopping at Blue Beacon for a quick cleaning as I drive off the exhaust pressure throws all the road grime and dust up onto the rear of the wet motorhome and front of the trailer. I know small issue, but would it hurt to redirect the exhaust for at a right angle than down at the ground?

I don't see why not !
mine actually goes straight out as shown below...
but could some of your issue be the pusher's fan rather than the exhaust as mine REALLY stirs up a dust cloud when going over gravel, etc. ?

You might talk to the blue beacon guys about cleaning off their drive

My rear dust cloud at low speeds is 95% from the engine fan rather than exhaust. (easy to tell as they are on opposite sides). My exhaust is mostly downward but angled to the side. I did change the angle a bit a year ago when I replaced the tip. And if I have the basement AC/heat pump on the dust cloud is 10 times as bad.

The exhaust gas is extremely hot, so be really careful where you point it. Think in terms of several hundred degrees, enough to light a paper or wood fire in seconds. Or melt most synthetic materials. I have mine angled just slightly to the outside, enough so it doesn't blast right into the ground, but still downward and away from the coach.

Mine was pointed about 30 degrees off of vertical down and towards the rear. There was enough heat from it that it discolored and started to melt the fiberglass panel panel to the rear. As RVRoamer has suggested, there is a lot of heat coming out of the exhaust.

Ours was a 90 down from the muffler, a 45 angled towards the left corner of the Rv and a downward tip on it. Got tired of the diesel curling up onto the rear of the coach and onto the toad.
I changed it.
Put the 45 down off the muffler and then the 90 out the side. Had to shorten the end of the 90 some.
Now almost no diesel on coach or toad.

My muffler flows straight to the rear, so Safari put a 90 to the left and it exits level out the driver side, with a slight downward tilt, I like it but I need a new tip. Where can I find one?

I like them pointed straight out to the side to avoid blowing dust.
If you point it slightly higher you can blow it into a Prius window.

You can order a new tip at most truck shops.
