Oasis exhaust

Has anyone rehung their Oasis exhaust bringing it up closer to the body of the coach? I would like to increase the clearance on my Ventana 4326 coming into my drivewsy.

With a smaller pipe bender (if needed) shouldn't be much of an issue, just make sure that there is a little bit of clearance between the pipe and the bodywork..

Yup, ditched the cross over Oasis exhaust on our 4369 VT and had a short pipe w/baffle installed. Exhaust now on drivers side. Oasis approved. Been a year plus with no issues

On our 18 London Aire I moved the exhaust pipe and tip up about 2 inches because I to thought it was to low. What I found out was that I needed to get different exhaust pipe hangers because with what Newmar was using that was as high as it would go. Needed horizontal hanger so I could pull the exhaust system up. Ended up taking a couple hours to loosen all bolts and clamps to move it all up.

Thanks for the replies. I am going to move it up. Was concerned the distance may have been dictated by heat.

On our 16 dutchstar the oasis ran all the way to the front by the generator exhaust. Had about 5 inch ground clearance by the front axle from the road. I removed it and cut off just enough pipe for it to exit directly from the side of the coach. I posted this and promptly got comments about fumes and the fact that exhausted under the slide. We rarely use the diesel option. I did run it a couple times and smelled no diesel inside and the CO detector never went off. I now have better road clearance and less weight from 20 feet of pipe.

I have wanted to warn folks about the location of that exhaust on the VT 3709 because it exits right in the backside of the water bay - and on my first trip I went to dump the black tank and found that exhaust was directly hitting the sewer pipe (suspended on a ramp) - wrong way to learn that lesson!! Not sure whether or not that is solely operator error!

Itís my understanding that the diesel emitts much less CO than gasoline. That being said, the only time I have ever smelled the diesel (from our generator) is when Iím Extending the Wall Slide while the generator is running.

Mine exits at the oasis compartment. Have one other compartment before it gets to water bay.

On a separate note if anyone is super paranoid about fumes a portable extension could be made. The relocation far out weighs the road clearance.
