While washing my coach today, the 12" long stainless exhaust tip fell off. Glad it happened at my home and not on the road
My tail pipe had rusted out and gave way where the tip was attached. So now I have a broken tail pipe that ends about 6 -7" inside the exterior opening thru which the tip passed. I have not been able to get the tail pipe out of the muffler since it seems rusted fast. This will not be a DIY project so I will be taking the coach to a local shop.
My question....should I cut the tail pipe off some to increase the distance from the coach exterior? As it is now, it will blow directly onto the rear of my rubber full length ultra guard and the backside of the fiberglass rear body panel. I am concerned about the heat causing damage to the ultra guard or maybe the body panel. If I cut some of the pipe off, exhaust will still exit under the coach but farther back from the original opening.
I will need to travel about 50 miles to the FL shop.
